Before buying the parts to fix an idle problem (dying and jumpy) I checked for vacuum leaks under the air cleaner. Found 4 vacuum lines disconnected. This could be the source of my problems!?! I reconnected them but noticed that there is a vertical vacuum fitting on the right side of the manifold between the fuel distributor and the intake side of the manifold. The rubber fitting goes to a splitter that goes to what looks like a sensor and the fuel EHA (I think). This black rubber fitting looks as though molten rubber (1/2” x ½” x 1”) was dripped onto the top of the fitting. I can’t tell if it was a splitter and melted or this rubber came from somewhere else. Is there any plug in the air cleaner cover that could have fallen out? Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a thing?

I have not seen what you are talking about. You may want to snap a picture and post it on the net for us to see.

Also, I think your car would have a frequency valve system, not an EHA because of the year.

Thanks Benzmac, for answering my post. Took me a week to get a digital photo and although I have it on Photopoint, I can't get it shared. I will keep trying but could zip and email it to you directly, but not without your permission.

I have to say that I have not confirmed it, but suspect it was a fix from a vacuum leak a local mechanic made. I will confirm if so before I waste anymore of your time.

PS - Yes, it has a frequency valve, not EHA.
