Dude many thanks for your video. Been searching the internet for a good diagram of the vacuum lines, everything was confusing me until I found your vid with the blue silicone lines. Easily helping me identify the lines in my engine. Thanks to you, vacuum line detatchment located and running like a dream again! Cheers for the vid….favourited for future reference :)

I prefer the black color high temp vacuum lines made by Mr. Gasket, p/n 11031, which have a thick wall so that they won't ever kink and are made to withstand the high heat generated by these boosted engines. They do have different colors available: yellow, black, blue, red, etc. The only downside to them is the price at around $30-some dollars. But, they do provide three different diameter sizes per package and I have used all three for my '02 9-5 Aero with 23x,xxx miles.

The only reason the 1999 – 2003 engines had failures was because GM used non synthetic oil in the models that weren't aeros. They also had bad pcv systems, but they have a upgrade you can get to fix that problem with the upgrade they have eeuroparts.I picked one up that had no sludge issues at all …. just got lucky I guess. The best way to see is if you remove the sump or valve cover and check for sludge. Mine has 170,000 on the orginal engine and still running strong btw mines a 2000 9-5 2.3T
