New Vaccuum Lines..

Ok, I have a saab 9-3 SE (2000) and am about to embark on the "Replace all hoses with silicone hoses" adventure.

Can anyone tell me a ballpark guess on how much hose I'm going to need and of which diameters?

Thanks guys!

(ps: the replace the turbo adventure is set to start next weekend )

you can use 3.5 or 4mm ID and I got 12 ft, which was enough

Thanks guys!

What'd you guys do about your Y or T Adapters? Just reused the old ones?

You can buy new plastic fittings at any auto parts store.

OK, does anyone know where this vaccuum lines goes? In the close up pic, its the vaccuum line closest to the camera. The larger photo is for reference to where the little plastic piece is located... I'm at a loss, its the only line that isn't hooked up and I can't find the nipple...

Is your BPV plugged in? It looks like the line that is supposed to run to it.

The BPV is upfront by the radiator, I don't think that's where your missing line goes. That module looks like it might be emission related. I'm not as familiar with T7 on the 9-3's.

the bypass valve is the black thing on the right side of the shiny tube that goes into the intake pipe. I think that hose gets connected to said black thing.

Ok, I dont think its any of the above...
The hose (the one that was stock that I took off) was about a foot long, so I cut the new one the same length. On the right of the engine block, theres a thick, plastic pipe (air tube Im guessing) and this short piece of vaccuum line goes under it somewhere I think (based on the placement of the stock tube I found dangling. I can take more pics if that's more helpful... Actually, see pic...
I think it gets connected somewhere around the locations of the arrows, down in the engine, I just can't find the nipple...

The one that goes into the radiator is plugged in, that hose is about 3 feet long. Theres another one that plugged into the silver box underneath the oil fill cover black housing thing. There's just that third one that's short, about a foot long...

If you are going to replace all the vaccum lines, might as well replace the t's and y's to. to might that makes the most sense. Kind of like replacing a head and keeping the same spark plugs. It is keep, and it will same you trouble, and you know that everything is new.

interesting idling issues now - seems somewhat random, but when i come up to a light and am parked, it idles hard. Not all the time, just sometimes. And it reverts back to regular idling if I put the car into neutral. Also, brakes seems strange, sometimes work right off the bat, other times gotta let the car get warmed up before the brakes work...

ideas?

The brake issue is due to a vacuum leak to the brake booster, my 9-5 did the same thing until I got all the vacuum issues dealt with.

As for the idle. Is your A/C on? I've found that automatic Saabs have a rougher idle in gear when the A/C is on.
