I've got these problems with my AV6:

Cruise Control won't set even though the light comes on.
No wheelspin at WOT from a standing start (maybe it's the grippy 18's?)
I get an occasional and very slight sputter (hesitation) when taking of directly
after starting the car:

so I started looking around
under the hood and this is what I found:

I think I'm missing a vaccum hose that connects to the top of
the intake manifold. Honda calls this port "the boost chamber".
I think there's 3 hoses (2 small and 1 larger) that does there
even though I only have 2 (1 small and 1 larger).

Can someone check their car and tell me where the hose that
connects here (I circled it in red) leads to? MAybe it's still connected
at the other end (where ever it leads to) and I just couldn't find it.
In any case, I'll need to know where to connect the other end of the
hose if I have to buy a new one.

Thanks a million,

HEre's the pic:

Ok, so you've been running without the vacuum hose, Experts; what's the worst that could happen??

Thanks guys for the help. Someone had attached my hose to the little valve that controls
the A/C temp. You can see it in the original picture.... THe mistake was between Honda and an import performance shop, as they are the only ones who have serviced my car. Very sad.

The results:
The Check Engine light is now off.
The TCS light doesn't come on now (it used to come on with the Check Engine)
Idle is smoother. Exhaust doesn't pop during idle anymore.
No more hesitation.
No more hot start sputter.
Wheels still won't spin out at WOT from a standing start.

Forgot to check the Cruise Control, But I suspect that it works now
I'll report back.

Thanks.

P.S. Maybe this was causing the excess sut on my exhaust pipes.

"Wheels still won't spin out at WOT from a standing start." About this, my wheels dont do it either. Is that normal??

I don't know...what kind of wheels and tires do you have?

I have the crappy stock Michelins and I can spin them like crazy if I stomp the gas from a stop. It's because the tires suck, not because the car has enough power to spin the tires :p At least not when it's stock :)

I have the 00av6, so no TCS was integrated. I have to see my tires, but if anything, it will just chirp for like half a second.

So was this vacuum line the way you solved your cruise control problem?

How did you guys fix your C.C.? I checked the fuses and they are ok.
