    the hose that goes from the PCV to the TB is rubber....may not look like it but it is......use a piece of 3/8 fuel line..........i did .......GM does not make that hose anymore so you cant get it from the dealer......unless you buy the whole setup......over 100$

    If it is vacuum hose, then yes. If it is regular hose, I would avoid using it as it could collapse under vacuum.

    You have a hardware store near ya? Take the hose that broke to the hardware store and match it with some vaccum hose. Either rubber or silicone hose will work.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk. If that were me, I would have left and went to a hardware store. There are other ways to replace an out of date hose IMO.

    some of the PCV setup is hard plastic.....but not from the valve to the TB....make sure you use a stout hose...lots of vacum in there

    That was smart! Thanks
    I knw it's gonna sound funny but my car don't have the pcv vale where the other ls1 has em lol
    I seen they have in the front on top of the block. Or close to the tb. What ever location that is. Well. My car has it on the side of the intake. All da way at the bk. Close to the last coil on the passnger side.
    I hope I said the right directions lol
    but idk why is it there

    98 was a unique year and one of the differences is the pcv location.
