    it was cold today and I tried changing the pcv valve (mine is the type that sits in a hose in the shape of a bucket)... the line inside the bottom section cracked (both the rubber and internal plastic tube).

    I need this repaired but cannot find any links or local stores.

    the hose connects from the bottom... to the pcv valve (so its not the top hose...) I need the rubber hose, and the plastic hose hidden inside. The pcv valve and part above the pcv valve is fine.

    any help?

    ford-motorcraft lists a "emission seperator" if that's the same thing, part number is KCV109 , rockauto.com has it for $18.55.

    it's listed in their catalog under 1998 ford escort lx 2.0 SOHC, it's under the "Emissions" section then go into "PCV hose".

    Unfortunately there's no picture of it though.

    I know there's a few different PCV setups, this thread has pictures of each one. http://www.feoa.net/modules.php?name=Fo ... ic&t=40630

    I couldn't find anything matching the part number you gave for the hose.

    According to that part number you supplied above, you have a '98

    Thanks guys for this professional post. It was really helpful for my case. I have an Escort LX 98 with a cracked PCV valve lower hose. Just a follow up on alscort93 and jerger, a year later, I got the entire assembly (2 hoses + PCV valve) for $50 from the local Ford dealer. The part number is
    F8CZ-6758-DA

    More details:
    1- The auto-parts sells only the PCV valve for about $3. No hoses.
    2- I went to a junk yard but couldn't find it. Tip: there are a lot of designs for the PCV assembly. If you're getting it from a junkyard, you have to go by yourself and see before you buy. You can't rely on telling your mechanic: "get me the pcv hose for escort lx 98". Most probably you'll get the wrong one. And thanks jeff518 for the link to the photos.
    3- When I came by this forum, I finally decided to call Ford dealer who was the only one in my case to have it, but yes, $50.

    Now here is the thing when you get your part from the dealer:
    As jerger said, the lower part of the hose that cracks has the OEM number
    F8CE-6758-AE
    There is another number on the hose (M536K >PA6< ) but it's not the part number. As I said, this lower hose is not sold separately, and does not exist in their inventories. What they sell is the entire assembly, including the lower hose, upper hose and PCV valve. The OEM part number for the assembly is:
    F8CZ-6758-DA
    and that is the one you should look for when buying from Ford.

    The number on the hose and any Ford part is considered the casting number. NOT the part number. Any good Ford parts counter guy can translate the casting number into the part number.

    I have an MPC here at home, but I bought it because it covers '69 and '70 mustang parts. Ford part numbers are pretty easy to understand if you want to learn a bit.

    Should you replace it with a new one or would a junck yard special be fine? What does it do? Just noticed mine has a big hole in it, and it is running ok.

    If you can find the hose you need in decent condition at the JY I would go that route. Just make sure pull/bend it some to make sure its not just waiting until you install it on the car to crack.

    If the rubber looks good (black and elastic) I would certainly go the cheaper route.

    Hello All, thanks for your experience sharing. I have a Ford Escort 1998 Wagon and had a code p1131 problem. The PCV valve was cracked.
    Ordered a entire assembly as mentioned in the post from www.silverstatefordparts.com. Part number F8CZ6758DA for $25(part) + $13(shipping). Installed and the code disappeared.
    Further note here, after driving for a while, the code p1131 was on again. The cause was the quality of gasoline. After refill the gas from Shell instead of Costco, the code disappeared. Probably the gasoline from Costco contains certain amount of water. At least not as good as other places though it is a little cheap.
