Wow, Thanks for the info Mr. Mcmunkee. Thats the exact hose I'm talking about. Would the hose be a dealer-only hose? I'm sure the PCV can be bought at my local auto parts store. Thanks very much.mr_mcmunkee said:Sounds like you may describing the PCV valve's elbow. Is it a 90-degree bend on a short, black plastic hose?
It may cause the car to throw codes, which will fail you for emissions (if any codes are present). It won't hurt the car other than that and possibly a bad, rough idle but it's cheap and should be replaced. Just replace the valve itself and the elbow while at it...both VERY easy and only a couple of bucks.
$15? Geesh. Bought mine from an Advance Auto parts for $5 when I replaced my $2 PCV valve.homestead367 said:I got mine from ford. The hose did not cost me any more than like 15 dollars.
It usually takes 25-40ish miles to complete a drive cycle to clear the code out, so you must have something else going on also.LowMilesZX2 said:Got a new vacuum hose assembly from my local Ford dealer, had it in stock. How do I get my "Check Engine" light to go out now? Have started & stopped the car many times since the new hose install, but the lights still on? Any ideas? Thanks again everyone.
