    The one labeled part number F4CE-6758-AB (at least on a 1995LX) has a L shaped vacuum fitting on one end where it goes into the intake. Anyone happen to know the size for a replacement? Looks close to 1/4- 3/8, but you never know. I'd post a pic, but the batteries for my digital camera are being cherged right now.

    It doesn't really matter what size of hose you use. Just make sure it isstrong enough (for example fuel line) that it won't collapse under vacuum. The PCV valve itself will regulate the flow, so the ose size is essentially irrelevant, provided you can attech the PCV valve to it and secure the hose itsefl the vacuum tee.

    Specifically, I am referring to this (now that I have a picture). You should see that it looks picnhed.

    You can see if you look at the back it's collapsed:

    OK, I had to go to severla auto parts stores (dealers closed on Sundays). There is no PCV Elbow made specifically for the Escort (meaning in any of their catalogs). However, one auto parts store person said that he had run into this problem before and gave me a Motormite Help 47029, which is made for Chryslers, and said that it would work. We even test fitted it in the parking lot. It looks like this:

    I used fuel line hose on mine. Simple and cheap and have had no problems from it.

    I bought a new one from the dealer. It comes together with the plastic tubing. I think it was $15.

    Dealer would have been my first choice, but I didn't find this until Saturday afternoon and it was too late to go to a dealer.

    The crappy aftermarket replacement has already failed! I'm off to the dealer tommorrow. I'm also going to write a nasty gram to the company that made the crappy replacement part.

    I just told Dink at autozone it was a straight hose 2 feel long. He gave it too me, and I bought hoseclamps. It fits fine, and it doesnt have to run over the engine like it did before. haha

    What size hose did you buy? The first dealer I called wants $34.09 for one. the second one wants $21.73. Rubber parts that old aren't the type if thing I get from a junkyard, uless you got one off of some other new car and it happened to fit anyway.

    You ever see the car idle with it off? Its crazy It bobs up and down at 500RPM.
