You need to check the vacuum lines that go to your auto hubs as well as the lines at the pump on the passenger side inner fender. You have a vacuum leak that is causing the problem.

Seems to be a lot of this going around. Just like he said, a vac leak. Better than an AC problem!

x2 i know the search sucks, but there were at least two other post with a brief repair/diagnostic procedure on here in the last two days that might help you out.

I agree that Search sucks. I just subscribe to the threads that I am interested in then I can go back to User CP and find them pretty easily. Just my way.

New hubs causing vacuum issues

Hello all,

I had to replace my hubs on my 2001 F 250 Super Duty 4X4 7.3 PSD. Everything was working as usual before the change. Now when I try to go into 4WD, AC goes to defrost. I have learned that signifies a vacuum problem. I took both hubs out of the system closed off the line on the drivers side and hooked up a vacuum guage to the passenger and everything worked normal again, got the 13 or so in Hg going into 4wd and the 5 in Hg to come out. No leaks from pump or lines. i hooked back up dr side hub and switched to 4wd and got mabye 5 or 6 in Hg and pump runs a long time. I am also not able to pull and hold a vacuum on the hubs themselves. Any input is greatly appreceiated.

Thanks,
