There is a tiny 4 millimeter black plastic vacuum line that runs from (looking under the hood), just behind your air conditioner compressor on the top, right of center to the left, under the breather hose to the intake and on over to the left to the air conditioner evaporator body just behind your windshield washer and antifreeze reservoirs. This hose bakes and cracks with time. This vacuum line is easy to find. It is the only one like it under the hood. They always crack close to the air intake hose between the air filter and the intake. I have broken the split in 2 and spliced them with a one inch piece of weedeater fuel hose. After a few years, it splits open in other places. I then got some 6 millimeter air line plastic tubing, cut the 4 millimeter hose about 3 inches from the connector at each end, and then plugged the ends into the larger tubing and sealed them with RTV silicone.
By the way, there is a plastic, round vacuum canaster under the windshield washer fluid reservoir. The hose to that deteriorates also.
