I Have a vacum leak on my wife's Taurus and need a diagram. It is a 2001 with a 3.0 DOHC motor.

It has a nipple for a vacum hose on the intake where the throttle body attaches but there isn't any vacum line attached and it is sucking air...I found a vacum line close by that was opened but it won't connect to the nipple. The nipple size is roughly the size of a pencil but the hose is only the size of a pencil lead. The line is too short to connect to the nipple...I'm thinking there is some type of 90 degree adapter that goes on to connect the two. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Doubt it's the PCV line in the diagram below, so the other alternative is the EVAP purge line.

Thanks for your response Joel.
   I went to every part store in town and no one has anything that will work. I took another look and on the left side of the motor (passenger side looking from the front) there is some kind of sensor that connects to the intake. It has an electrical connector and two vacum ports. The vacum lines run behind the intake and split off, one goes to the EGR valve and the other one  is the one I need to connect.  I can't take a picture of it because my daughter has the digital camera.

Reads like the EGR regulator solenoid.....all you need to do is connect an extension vacuum hose to the hard vacuum line in place and the other ent to the vacuum port nipple.......works every time. LUK

Thanks Joel,

I just need to find something close to make it work.  Damn part stores are worthless most of the time. I found some elbos but none that will fit on the manifold side.

There is a large rubber 90 deg. elbow that goes from about 3/8" to one or two very small plastic lines, only way to get it is buy the vac. harness from ford and it is not cheap. Otherwise you will have to make you own adapter. Those rubber 90s get soft and swell and fall right off, we fix them all the time.

I just wanted to post an update.  I bought some 3/8 tubing and a 3/8 to 1/8 adapter and hooked it up. It's not real pretty but it seems to be working. Hopefully it will last a while. I just wanted to say thanks to Joel and Adam for their help.    Thanx!   Steve
