Brake booster hose: to tranny also?
You probably noticed the two little outlets leading off of this booster hose, one of which leads to the 3/2 valve on top of the valve cover. This helps control shifting.
I assume that with the little nipple broken/cracked on your old booster hose, you had rough shifts? Just curious, as I'm trying to find out why mine (300CD) is shifting very hard all of a sudden.
I have the same problem with my booster cable (broken plastic nipple on the first vaccum outlet). Car still stops fine, though.
Did your shifts improve upon replacing the entire hose (assuming you worked out that crimping problem)?
