    there is a 1.5 inch long black rubber tube on the fire wall in the engine compartment passenger side. It got clogged up or a bug found its way in there. When I had the problem on my 99 I used a bic pen to unclog it. I had to crawl under the truck to get at it.

    look up under the plastic "cowling" that the wipers sit on. i think there is a drain or 2 there somewhere that may get clogged. also,check the seals next to the firewall.

    New Pioneer stereo, and all 4 speakers with Infinity components. Sirius satellite radio. Deckplate mod done. Door buzzer silenced forever thank God, tinted windows, vent visors, hood protector(bug guard), ceramic pads and new rotors, dechromed EVERYTHING. 2" Lift front 3" rear. Skyjacker AAL's and replacement leafs(and front spacers) from Fatbobsgarage.com. Skyjacker 7000 Hydro rear shocks, those Bilstein 5100 fronts are coming soon!
    Look for the rubber tube on the passengers side, you will have to find something like a piece of wire to carefully put in it to knock the crud blocking it.

    There was a guy on Car Talk recently with the same problem. Click and Clack suggested getting the guys to blow it out with compressed air next time he got an oil change.
