    hole in hose



    ok so here is my delimma as I was doing a little bit of my checks today under the hood and heard a suction noise that drowned out the sound of the actual intake and found the hose in the picture has a hole in it, the hole is actually on the bottom of the hose so i covered it up with my fingers and the car started to die out on me. Does anybody know what this hose is, I was thinking it had something to do with the egr, can anybody lead me in the right direction and how important it is cause I dont wanna drive my car and screw anything else up.

    Thanks,

    That hose is part of the PCV system, doesn't have anything to do with the EGR.

    Because maybe the pcv valve is shot?

    I cleaned it with brake parts cleaner, then WD-40 it and haven't had a problem with it. Rockautoparts still sells them. I think they're actually on sale right now.

    If it has been leaking for a while, the PCM has "learned" the mixture with the extra air. Fix it and do the idle relearn, it should be fine.
