its comming out of the passanger side tube at the bottom, IT WILL NOT STOP. I know a little is suppose to come out but this is going non stop. Then I decided to take a pair of pliers and squeeze the tube on the driver side and it stopped leakin. Now i cant get the fucking hose out of the throttle body. Its stuck on there and will not move!!

i guess i am a bit confused here. if its leaking from the TB itself connect the tubes back on, or rubber cork them up till you replace the TB,...if you already have the new TB on and its leaking after you attached the tubes,.........are you using the stock tube fastener things on the tube ends? if so go to a auto store and get some of the screw tight fasteners with out the correct tool to retighten the stock ones it may leak all the time,.... or haha if you need the TB off,...put down a bunch of rags,....make sure you have rubber stoppers first, and take the pliers off and then disconnect the tube and plug em. they should leak some bu tnot like you are saying,, was your engine cold when you did this??

Was the car cool befor you pulled the hose? Open the Rad Cap to let the pressure out. !Caution! Make sure the car is cool or hasnt been driven recently.
Theres only so much that can leak out then it will stop. Gravity is on your side.
