Default 02 Sportage Vacuum Line/hose

I need some help! I need to replace the vacuume line for my 4WD as the hose is cracked. I went to the parts store to get new hoses but they asked me what size I needed. Any ideas??? I figured they could find out for me! We had our first snow today and needless to say I couldnt use my 4WD!

Vacuum hose is not a specific part so most stores are unable to look up which size is needed, they just have several bulk rolls. Your best bet is to take in a piece of the old hose and match it up, just like with nuts and bolts.

The vacuum lines the dealership offered are probably the metal lines that run across the firewall. I know there was a common problem with those metal lines corroding internally and clogging up, so you may want to check those out too. On one of mine I just bypassed that entirely and ran a piece of rubber vacuum hose across the engine bay. It's tacky, but it works.

When the vacuum hose is cracked it is not enough to replace them. You have to check the wheel bearings too, for rust and for grease, and apply new grease to them. Moreover you have to clean the hose line from dirt; to do that buy from a gardening shop a string trimmer line spool of the right diameter to run it inside the vacuum hose line, from up to down to remove the dirt from inside the hooses. If you need further help just ask.

Thanks - I guess Im just going to bring a piece of the hose in there. When I originally asked at the parts store, the guy told me it was $1 a foot, just needed to know the size. The hose popped off last year and funny thing when the car was under warranty two years ago, dealership told me I had vacuum leak and U can actually see where they cut they hose. It split, so last year I just cut it a bit more. Unfortunately it was dry rotted, kept splitting and popped off. Its only one side. If I get the hose to stay, the 4WD works fine, so I am sure its just a matter of replacing the hose and nothing else. Thanks everyone. Im not going to bother with the dealership right now. My car is almost 9 years old and if I can fix for $5, Im going to do that first.

I think that the correct diameter for the string trimmer line to be used to clean the vacuum hub hoses could be 0.095. The one I have has got a diameter of 0.089 but I don't think you have this measure in the US.

If you had the vacuum hose broken for a year then probably water entered into the wheel bearings, and the grease could have been washed away and the bearings rusted. You should have them checked for rust and enough grease.
