Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Chevy Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

THE PCV HOSE ON THE DRIVER SIDE OF THE 5.7 LITER ENGINE CONNECTS FROM THE VALVE COVER TO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. THERE IS ANOTHER SMALLER VACUUM LINE THAT COMES FROM THIS CONNECTION AT THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. WHERE DOES THIS VACUUM LINE CONNECT?

ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THIS SAME ENGINE, THERE ARE 3 HOSES/LINES THAT CONNECT TO THE EVAPORATIVE EMISSIONS PURGE SOLENOID VACUUM SWITCH. ONE TO THE CANISTER PURGE SOLENOID, ONE TO THE PURGE FITTING AT THE VAPOR CANISTER, BUT WHERE DOES THE THIRD VACUUM LINE COMING OFF THIS DEVICE CONNECT TO? NO VACUUM DIAGRAMS SHOW THESE 2 LINES.
PLEASE HELP.

The 3rd goes to the fuel tank, the smaller hose goes to the MAP sensor

I was unsure to give you the answer because its V8 and there's 2 different engines and the vacuum diagrams are different-I can provide the other diagram if you wish-hoping its the one you're looking for.

Our techs work hard to try to diagnose thousands of problems. Automotive repair is something we are very accurate with, sometimes it requires cooperation back and forth to get to the solution.
