Vehicle listed above running hot causing overflow tank popping off cap. Just replaced the thermostat, new plugs and wires, flushed and installed the right coolant. It then started to run a rough idle. And at the stoplights it would idea low and like it's going to stall out.
Need a diagram of vacuum lines. I'm not sure how they connect to a power steering air control valve because it's not connected. Right now, I am trying to find how it's connected to the air intake manifold.

Hi,

As far as the vacuum related to the power steering idle up valve, I was able to find a schematic showing the vacuum hoses. There should be two of them. At an idle, if you turn the steering and pump pressure reaches a specified point, the valve allows a metered amount of air to bypass the throttle plate causing the engine, idle speed to increase.

Take a look at the schematic and the pics and let me know if that helps. Also, the last 2 pics are how to test if it is working.
