"air supply valve: this is the same as the bac valve, only it wont give you a low idle, it will idle low/stall with the ac on, or when you move the steering wheel on a ps car"





! Ok I replaced my oil meter pump the 4 hoses and nozzles. And my car ran great for about 2 weeks then on a highway while take a sharp turn (I was in neutral) my car stop running the idle completely drop! Just before this happened I heard my power steering alarm goes off. Anyway I turn the key and my car started up again no problem this time my car idles at 500 instead of the usual 800-900rpm. Later I checked my Power steering and I was completely out of power steering fluid and I figured that was the whole issue so problem solved right?. WRONG! 3 days later my car does it again! This time the PS fluid was in the norm slightly diminished than earlier so It looks like Iím back to work on my car again



I'm going to bite the bullet and replace my vacuum hoses any idea on where I could find a kit if their is one avaible?

I don't have A/C belt so that can't be evolved with this spontaneous low idle

Yep going to get a new power steering pump and hope that solves my problem (YAY!!!!!!!!! and OUCH my WALLET!!!!!!!!!!!)



One step forward and two steps back



my questions are:

what is the bac valve? what does it look like? where is it? (Keep in mind that some of us who read this info really don't have any hands on experience)

don't get a new pump get a used one from someone. people take them off their cars all the time. i don't know what car you have so it's hard to tell you where your bac is at. go to teamfc3s.org and look for the factory service manual. it will give you specs to check all your sensors, bac, and how to get your girlfriend pregnant without touching her...
