    Pics of PCV hose fix

    Here is some pics that I did to replace the hose that always cracks for the PCV.

    I used this thread as a guide (very helpful):

    PCV Valve Recommendation / Housing Modification


    This has been working very well and only cost $10 including the PCV.



    This:



    Replaces these:







    I used hose connectors. 1 T shape, 1 L shape, and 1 barrel. This cost $12.

    Beats the replacement cost of $80. Long term not sure how it will hold up, but for a quick fix it is a great option is you are out some where and you find you have a vacuum leak from your pcv hose. I'll report back if I find that it doesn't last too long. So far as of today (4 OCT 10) it has lasted a month with no issues and no heat cycle damage.


    A catch can and a LS6 valley cover is in my immediate future.

    How much oil do you have in the intake tract? I need to pull mine apart over the winter to see how it is faring. I replaced one PCV hose with a factory piece -- for about 10 times what you paid for a fix. When mine fails again, I may just try a spark plug boot assuming it is at the throttle body where it lets loose. Nice work... Marvin!

    Jeff it explains how I had all the stuff on the passengers side of the intake. It took a bit of scrubbing to get it off. Some carb cleaner and Simple Green. Still took about an hour to get it off.

    My PCV line had a hole in the boot at the MAF sensor as well. After patching it, my idle speed calmed down. Unfortunately, I was too afraid of the California Smog visual inspection giving me grieve, so I replaced my repaired line the week before the Smog test.

    My only suggestion would be to remove the harnesses and hoses in the way, rather than try to work around them. (I learned that the hard way)

    I did mine as I pulled the intake. I could easily reach EVRYTHING obviously lol. I replaced the intake gaskets and completely rerouted the pcv hardline with new braided 3/8 fuel line and a little heater hose barrel for the pcv housing and replaced it with the fixed orifice valve. of coursed I replaced the opsu as well while I had her top off.
