    Broke a piece off my Vacuum solenoid switch when replacing valve cover gasket. Looking for one to replace it

    None of those are the correct parts. Only ones I have found are 200+ bucks. More or less looking for a used one that may be on a wrecked truck

    Gotcha. Yeah that part number looks like it's harder to find. My bad.

    I don’t believe that one would work either just becuase the hoses connect on the side and it has an adjustable screw on the top. With those that have 2 ports in the top I don’t see an adjustable option.

    I've been wondering why all these different part numbers for these VSVs used in different places? Especially if the function seems to be that of NO/NC or NC/NO and not really anything else right? Are the internals made of different materials for the different mixes of air/gas/exhaust go through and that's why there's so many different ones? I've wondered about this for years man lol

    Did you merely damage the plastic male fitting on it?? One item I have used for 30 years is a product called "Shoe Goo". It seems to be a mixture of airplane glue and silicone, and I have used it hundreds of times, it always works phenomenal.

    IMO, everyone should own a tube of Shoe Goo, the stuff is amazing... It sets up VERY FAST, so you have to be careful and ready to use immediately. I usually wet my finger to smooth it out, once it hardens, it's not coming off.

    I had cleaned off an old tube in my kitchen sink years ago when I had my older father move in with me, I wiped it on one side of the sink, and 6 years later, it is still there and 100% waterproof...

    Anyhow, it's a product tht may get ou out of this jam pretty cheap. It's just a solenoid valve with a vacuum that switches, not worth a 200$...

    I may actually try that. The male part that broke off is the one that runs to the air intake. Anyone know the exact purpose of the vacuum switch?

    there should be a vacuum diagram on the hood/core support. Find your switch and see what it says.

    I just got a new VSV and I’m wondering if anyone knows what to adjust the screw too that’s located on the top?

    I ended up getting an aftermarket one that’s made specifically for the 2.7 its fully opened at the moment though. My old one was almost closed I wanna say when I took it off after it broke

    I actually took @DC92T advice and put my old one back together and it’s been holding up fine but I still have a new one too.
