Does anyone have a subscription to this website, that can retrieve the rest of the instructions past the sites subscribe cutoff?

This would definately help out and explain a lot.

Tried finding that information in the service manual which many have downloaded. I just wasn't able to find it or any vacuum line information Not saying it isn't there, just wasn't able to find it last night.

Yep I have it all down loaded from months ago. I went thru the massive .pdf's also and found nothing.

Here's a full diagram of what goes where.... Rbarrios, the link you shared for Ebay was the actual engine mount.

yes-- correct...

the ebay item-- was to show that the mount does indeed come with a nipple.

Looking at the pic above---
it makes sense...

I said the Acadia for this year does not show this fancier Mount with the nipple...

but I remembered theres has been post from members who work on their cars- and suddenly find that the vehicle runs rough... and that nipple up top- that appears to be missing a cap once they start searching for vacuum leaks.
and other owners say-- theirs have a small cap attached to it---

wow now I wanna go see if I have that option. I've taken my intake manifold off several times and never remember a vacuum line at the back side.

I don't know if it was used on the 09's ??? Yeah, and dummy me, didn't get a picture of the backside of the manifold before I put it back in... duh. :facepalm: I guess I could try to take a pic of the connection while it's back in the "Cherry-Ot". If there is any room to see it.

Pics of the rear manifold connection point(my finger is on IT - it isn't the silver barrel thing in focus), severed line(s), engine mount, vacuum tank

I ordered the replacement hose(s). Hopefully it comes quickly and I can put it on without dismantling the entire front end...
What I hate is shipping costs. The part is $19.** and shipping is $14.** Oh well - gotta have it!

Called the company I ordered the hose from, come to find out it is on a national back order. How does that happen? Is there really that much of a shortage of this particular part? Is it that high in demand? Is it that this part fails that often ??? I haven't seen many posts about this issue, other than my own here. So I cancelled the order, and am going to find it somewhere that actually has it on a shelf somewhere....hopefully....

Justin-PA, I just look at this site for a 2009: http://www.gmpartsdirect.co/auto-parts/2009/buick/enclave/cxl-trim/3-6l-v6-gas-engine/engine-cat/engine-and-trans-mounting-scat

It appears that the same vacuum line is available for yours, also. So, it could be that your engine mounts are the same type as my 08's. ???
I saw that last week--
and noticed that they reuse the picture...
but if you look for those part #s on the right--- like 11 and 13---- not there...
and the trans mount on the 08 and 09 have different part #s

Or you could make your own...
OR use couplers.

That hose looks pretty small...

But it may be possible to find a coupler-- like this one at an auto parts store.

That's what I was thinking too, rbarrios. Maybe mm the hose diameter and find a replacement that I can cut to length and use the existing end connectors to the nipple on the manifold and the lower connection.

I measured the vacuum hose and found 6mm O.D. X 4mm I.D.. I found this on Ebay; http://www.ebay.com/itm/171823839435?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&var=470759192610&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

for $3.78(but from China). I guess I will check into my local autoparts stores or the hardware store to see what I can find there. I have also contacted several of my online vendors and ask for them to check if they actually have the hose part in stock and on their inventory shelves - am waiting to hear back from them if any of them do. More to follow.... :popcorn:

When you go looking for the hose, don't forget to tell them it is a vacuum line. The wrong kind of hose and it will collapse in on itself.

:thumb: Yep, thanks Rick H! I actually cut the mangled end off about an inch and will be taking it with me to compare what they have to the OEM...

I'm intrigued by your DIY effort! No, I'm impressed! I can't wait to find out how this comes out. :thumb:

Mine is an 09 and I looked at the motor and transmission mounts and found no vacuum lines.
Also there is no vacuum connection on the intake manifold where indicated.
I wonder if when Buick went DI, they also took that option away.
