Default wild vents solved!!!!

hey guys

so i got bored today and just started looking up stuff and i found a bit of information that anyone of us should have thought of. the vaccum line that goes to the vacuum motor to control your vents, it says to put a one way check valve in so that it will create vacuum for it but wont lose it, which in theory will keep the vents working properly

Here is the website http://dodgeram.info/tsb/1996/24-01-96a.htm

Hate to burst your bubble, but Laramie already put a post regarding an answer to this problem a while back. I think it was maybe 3 years ago?

the wild vent fix says to put the check valve on the vacuum line going to the cruise control servo and the tsb that dodgeman22 found says to put it on the one going to the hvac box, the tsb also says not to put it on the line going to the cruise servo, so everyone that has done the wild vent fix has done it wrong, unless the TSB is wrong.

My bad. Well, my job sucks, so a day feels like a year. That's my excuse. Just trying to give credit where credits due.

MOPAR.BIZ is way better. Plus you get a discount since you are a Dodge Forum member.
