That vacuum line originates at a T fitting at the vacuum reservior (about a 5" black ball) located near the right front inner fender, about 2" forward and right of the engine block. A larger tube supplies the vacuum from the right rear of the upper intake manifold (plenum) fitting. This tiny plastic tube is prone to drying and splitting in the area that is exposed to engine bay heat before it goes into the wiring harness loom, so give it a good look over there. Also, the manual valve in the controls gets loose from use and will loose vac there, I've made special and cheap kits to repair this. On my '95 Astro I had only 5" of vacuum at the fitting on the plenum, a new gasket brought it back.

Where do you reattach the vacuum hose that controls the heater on a 2000 astro van?

which line are we talking about the small hard plastic line that is near the A/C freon resavour to the valve cover on the drivers side. If that's the one you'll have to take off the engine cover on the inside and it is located next to the throttle body on the drivers side. There is another soft rubber hose that comes off of that same connector near the A/C unit that goes somewere behind the alternator. I haven't found it yet been looking and searching for hours now
