Default 95 Sable main emission vacuum hose assembly

Anyone have a part number for this? It's the red/green plastic tubes that run from the vacuum relay solenoid to the EGR valve and the manifold.
No luck with rockauto or any of the local part stores. The dealer sold me part F2DZ-9E498-A, which is almost a foot too short (Looks like it's for a gen 3)!
Engine is a gen 2 3.0L vulcan.
Thanks very much!

Make your own with bulk vac hose, and maybe a fitting or 2 from the HELP section at the local parts store. Might cost all of $5.

Your best bet would be to find one off of a salvage yard vehicle. I broke one once on a Taurus that I was fixing up after a headgasket repair. They don't make them anymore, and I don't know if bulk vac hose can do the same thing that those hard plastic lines do.

A vac hose is a vac hose....... doesnt matter if it is a hard plastic line or a rubber vac hose. You can buy the hard plastic vac line in bulk also, just like you can buy the rubber vac hose. Ford and other manufacturers use the hard plastic lines (Nylon, I believe) because they are cheaper than the rubber ones.

Iirc, ford used to sell that red/green egr/fpr vacuum harness for a ridiculous price of ~$120-150.

The problem is that these lines are really small. I have never seen a rubber vacuum hose that small.

It's the inside diameter for fit on connections, wall thickness is greater with a rubber hose so it looks bigger. I've made adaption sleeves from various size rubber hose to get the tight fit needed at connections.
Since we are talking vacuum is will not matter as once the motors running it will pull down the vacuum.

That was my favorite solution after the dealer sold me the wrong one (Despite the computer diagram he showed me being the right one). Autozone wanted about $10/foot for the Help-me hose (thick rubber) and I'd still have to couple together lengths, and because of the tight right angle it comes out of the relay at... bleh. Only thing I'm worried about is driving across Houston only to find the junker's hose is as brittle as the one I'm replacing (which snapped in two places just getting it off the car). It got melted when the short hose between the EGR pressure sensor and the exhaust failed, and hot exhaust sprayed all over that area.

Yeah, that's right about what the cheapest dealership I called wanted. $80 + $10 shipping. "See, it's a 'vintage' part," he explained. I said "Dude, it's a 95 Sable, not a 64 Mustang!"

Good info, thanks. I sometimes forget that old saying, that if you have to ask why a car company did something a certain way, the answer is usually "Money."

I can't believe I didn't think to ask for a bulk length, that'd be much better than coupling together the 12" lengths of Help-me hose they had. Thanks again, guys. I'll keep you posted.
