Vacuum system

Should the vacuum hose from the intake to the charcoal canister be hard or soft the line that goes under the intake is hard then splits into a line that's very soft I've been having issues out of this car and trying to weed out possible problems. 88 fox with the 5.0

The one that came stock on mine is just like you explained,but you can replace it with a regular piece of vacuum,fuel or coolant hose thats one solid piece of hose,instead of splicing different type/lengths of hose together.Ive got one piece of hose that reaches from the purge valve to the intake then another hose from the purge valve to the canister.I believe they used that hose setup,with the plastic splice,so you can disconnect the hose at the distributer but still leave a short piece attached to the intake(which is damn near impossible to reach without removing the upper intake or working with some long *** needlenose pliers in a confined area)That soft hose likes to dryrot too,especially at the canister end.If you wanna keep it so you can disconnect it at the distributer,just use a plastic splice at that spot,then you can put a hose clamp on it at the intake port so it will never come loose.If youre not gonna use a splice,so it can be disconnected,dont put a hose clamp on it because it'l be a pain to get off.
