Replace any cracked/rotten vacuum lines that pass through the firewall. It should be a cheap and easy job. Just do one at a time so you don't mix up the routing.

Still can't figure out the vent to defrost issue. Not such a big deal except that we are coming into the hot part of the year and doing a lot of towing, camper, boat, etc and losing the A/C on long hills has the wife complaining already and it's only May.

Anyone out there got any ideas of where else I might search for a vacuum leak?

Also have noticed recently that when I am on the expressway at 70 with the cruise set the engine surges from time to time. 2000 - 2200 rpms. Trans doesn't shift, just rpm surges only last 1 second or 2.....Very strange.....

Be good all..

Grizz.....

Hey guys wanted to share this one with you. The problem with my 2000 turned out to be the speed control servo. Once I bypassed it the vents were fixed, and the transmission started shifting better. But I lost my cruise control. So I went searching online for a new servo, and just by luck happen to find out that my 2002 Dodge Intrepid that I am getting ready to donate uses the same servo...hmmm So I pulled the servo from the Intrepid and put it into the Ram. Now I have vents when I need it and cruise when I want it.....Hope this helps someone out there....=))
