    Replaced PCV valve Noe car WONT RUN

    i already had a thread that included this topic but it had a different miseading title...
    i was replacing my PCV valve and accidently broke the plastic line thats connected to it
    the plastic line runs along the side of the intake manifold all the way up behind the engine somewhere..
    i connected a hose from the cracked part to the PCV valve so that there would be no leaks
    when i turned the car on, it revved to 2000 rpm and then it died
    i tried turning it again and it still does the same thing.
    does anyone know whats wrong??
    i took the EGR out so that it wouldnt be in my way but then i replaced it.
    this isnt the first time i've taken the EGR out...
    so basically i am going insane to try to figure out what the problem is and what i did wrong
    any help would be appreciated...
    thanks

    We went through a lot of checks yesterday, let's start with details of any mods, and pictures of your intake, throttle body, etc. Can you load some photos?

    my mods r: MAC headers, catted Y, SLP LM exhaust, SLP airlid/K&N, and thats about it...
    i cant get any pics now because the car is in the shop
    they already called and said they didnt know what was wrong and they had to run a diagnostic or somethng...
    long story short, they will not charge me for anything....

    ok i plugged the EGR on the intake with 1-3/8 expansion plug
    i had to do it because they said it was illegal
    the car is working fine now...
    but it smells like gas more
    is this because the EGR is out?
    thanks
    oh yeah...they DID NOT charge anything

    Thunder Racing (sponsor) carries both. Look at their site under "exhaust accessories".

    The EGR only operates at cruising speed so blocking it off will not affect the "gas smell". You probably want to give the car a chance to run a few cycles and relearn.

    Also, since you do have cats you might want to keep the AIR system.
