Can someone send me a picture of their vacuum check valves and routing so I can make sure I get the correct replacements. On my truck they are located on the passenger side of the firewall.

Thank ya
I can tell you that it is certainly a vacuum leak but to be 100% sure just do a quick vacuum test it would be wise anyways cause then you can find out if their is any engine problems not that I am saying their is but you can kill two birds with one stone. Anyway's I don't think it would be check valve I don't remember any magnum's coming with check valves the vacuum leak you might be having it probably under the dash or by the T'S that is in front of the engine hidden behind the alternator, I don't have any pictures to show but to make it cool just check every vacuum line you can find, don't confuse the EVAP with the vacuum lines.
