While doing some emissions testing on my '96 Mitsubishi Eclipse, I noticed that the vacuum hose from the intake manifold to the brake booster was cracked and decided to replace it. The OEM one has a built in check valve and I cannot find an OEM replacement except the really expensive ones at the dealer. Does anyone know if I can replace it with a normal hose and a normal check valve? If so which check valve should I get and how do I tell which side goes towards the intake?
a picture of your current broken one would really be helpful. and are you sure it is all one peice and the check valve is not removeable?
