i just checked it over and looks fine. tightned the plugs a little more and now it idles roughly from 450-1100 RPMs for about 5-6 seconds before stalling. the boots? on the wires were the wires connect to the plugs seem loose. i had to really pull and twist hard to get them off and now i can pull lightly and the pop right off. i know i didnt pull the wires to get them off the plugs.... thanks guys.

found a hose that is as hard as a rock and has some small cracks. i have a 1.9 H0 (88 egt) and its the hose about 2 inches back and about 2 inches down from the PCV valve. its on the right hand side of the engine. its all connected but there seems to be some oil where it connects to the engine so i dont think the seal is completely tight. can anyone tell me what this hose is called so i can go to the store and get it? or is it something a mechanic should replace? thanks
