Vacuum line can be used in different systems of the vehicle, for instance, in the turbocharger or the central locking. Vacuum line is also necessary for brake booster, which works as a rule in cars with negative pressure. Negative pressure that is needed for brake booster is generated in diesel and petrol engines trough the vacuum pump direct injection. In traditional gasoline engines the required negative pressure starts in the intake manifold behind the throttle valve.
Vacuum line must be constructed to be able to withstand the respective negative pressure without losing its shape. In most cases a thick rubber tube is enough. When a high vacuum is created, an additional reinforcement is incorporated, for example fibre glass or steel. Vacuum line defect usually is the result of a faulty sealing. Therefore, the system malfunctions or fails. As a rule, it makes sense to replace a faulty vacuum line. All the gaskets should be replaced. Safety-critical systems, like brake system must be repaired in the repair shops.
A new vacuum line is relatively cheap. However, it is necessary to make sure that the line fits the specific vehicle. It is not recommended to install an improper vacuum line, just because the connectors fit. Thus you can disturb the whole system.
