    Hey guys i was changing my dry rotted hoses and i broke the plastic inlet to my discontinued vacuum solenoid switch valve. I found one online since oem has been discontinued. Anyone ran inti this problem before?

    right now i am getting a hissing sound in the cab when no throttle is applied.

    I can't comment on aftermarket, but you could try threading it and using a plastic fitting with some thread sealant.

    Same part, different number fits 1st gen Tacomas and 3rd gen 4 Runners.
    It's the VSS for EVAP.

    2.7 and 3.4 use same Purge Selnoid as well as many Corollas.
    Only difference is some have 3 hose barbs and others have 2.

    Your 3.4 has an EGR VSS and an EVAP VSS(Purge Selnoid).
    Do you know which one you're talking about ?
