2.3 Vacuum Isseus Pleas Help ):

Well I got an 85 ranger but the guy i got it from said the vacuum system is messed up. It Idles really rough and in further investigation i found like a 3 foot hose coming off the egr and i am not sure what to do with it. its the only hose not connected to something and i am also trying to get the cruise control to work. Any help you can give me would be greatly apprecited

Here is a few pics of my 87 2.3 should be the same as your 85. I will snap a few pics of my cruise control tomorrow for you. I like the user name btw LOL.







And this is what the 2.3 looks like when you take everything off and rebuild!

Thanks, Is there a hose coming off of your egr? Everything else looks about the same to me. if i stand on the driver side and look at the egr there is a small hose coming directly towards me, any info on where it should go? and also i was fooling with it yesterday and under my dash there is two purple/white wires that arent plugged to anything. any idea what these might be?
