Hello,

Not that we won't call you but that isn't' the norm......so lets try this one more time to see if this works for you.

Also, just a note.......just so happens you got me again. That was by chance. We literally get thousands of posts and many of us work them. So to ensure we help you, please make sure you include all the info on your vehicle each time, otherwise it will waste your precious time on getting your vehicle back up and running and we don't want to give you the wrong data. I was able to look back and find your post but you never did in that one answer the specifics on your truck. Then I used a K2500 P/U, 4WD, V8-5.7L, VIN R. If this is not your vehicle please make sure you provide all that and the 8th digit of your VIN.

Okay, if I understand your question, you have two hose connectors on the purge vac diagnostic switch.

I have attached the pic again for the vehicle listed above. If you follow that, start with #2 the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve. A hose comes out of that and goes into one side of #1, the EVAP purge vacuum switch. From the other side of that switch, a long hose goes to the driver's side, most outside connection to #6, the EVAP canister Vent. From the inside of that vent, that hose goes to your fuel tank.

You sound frustrated on your email and I would be too. Vehicles not running right, needs inspection..........we understand. We will do our best to help you here. Try this first. If this doesn't work for you then get back with us and we will look at calling. But please ensure you have provided all of the detailed vehicle info first so that can be looked up and ready.

Hang in there Joe B........we'll get it.

There is a reference to "another vac fitting on the left side of the switch". I think gassombuddy has the same issue I do. I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban K1500 VIN 1GNFK16R4VJ329924

There are 3 vac fittings on the Purge Vac Diagnostic Switch, one goes to the EVAP CANISTER SOL VLV(which I translate to evaporative canister solenoid valve) another goes to the evap canister, and the third goes nowhere that I can tell. I did a replacement of the head gasket on this vehicle, and thought perhaps one of my five small children walked off with my well labeled vacuum hose or something. Maybe it really goes nowhere, but I was wondering if someone could confirm that.

To clarify, there are 3 vac fittings on the "PURGE VACUUM DIAGNOSTIC SWITCH".

According to the diagram posted, there are 2. The vacuum diagram is identical to what I have under the hood.

I know where to connect the two shown on the label, but where does the third go? I think it will take someone who has either designed the danged thing, or actually eyeballed one to answer this.

And thank you for working on this still. I wish there was some way I could donate to this thread specifically, but I will just donate to the site generally.

PURGE VACUUM DIAGNOSTIC SWITCH".

Do you have any no.S stamped on it? So we can cross reference it. I've been doing some checking on the rest of the engines it keeps giving the same diagram to include the 4.3L engine 6 cyl.

Thank you rasmataz,

That is a picture of the PURGE VACUUM DIAGNOSTIC SWITCH. There is a number stamped on the bottom, 12556356, with the name FASCO. Also, as you can see, the number 6281 is stamped on the top.

The hose on the right goes to the canister, the hose beneath (in the photo, that is left of) the 6281 stamp goes to EVAP CANISTER SOL VLV, and then there is a rubber elbow fitting with no hose attached to it.

I hate to dig up such an old topic/thread, but I too am wondering where the rubber elbow that comes off the passenger side of the Purge Vacuum Diagnostic Switch should be connected to? I have a 1997 Chevrolet K1500 with the 5.7L V8 and just did a tuneup with new plugs, wires, cap and rotor and discovered the elbow that was not connected to anything while I was working. Is this supposed to be hooked to something? Any help is appreciated.
