    Question Air Check Valve and Hose

    Hey Guys,

    Just took off my air air check hose and Valve. The hose is burnt out for the 4th time, and the air check valve is burnt though on the inside. Is there a metal replacement for the hose, and where can I buy one? The one on the driver side has never been a problem. Why does this keep happening on the passenger side only?

    Thanks!

    Is the air pipe off the exhaust getting super-hot? Was talking w/someone who had something similar a little while ago - www.ls1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16771

    Replace the check valve and hose. The valve is rotting out.

    Didn't NC go to OBDII plug in inspections only? Might be time for !AIR.

    I just replaced both parts and that did it. I didnt realise how bad my car was running or bad it sounded until it was replaced. It has all of its power back like it used to! I had no idea that something so small could have sucked so much power away!

    The check valves do wear out. I'd probably change 'em every 30k
