wait. pcv and hose asy? did you do the front or the back or both? The hose that was bad was the one that hooks into the intake manifold just below the throttle body. btw, I fixed mine last night and I was too lazy to post pics but I'll get to it tonight. How-to form as is the standard.

Funny story on it too. From the Ford parts database, it looks like Ford has fixed the problem by putting a metal elbow at the spot where the hole is, however, that updated part was not available at the dealership so i was just like... eff it, I'll just get the old school style. It lasted 100k miles before, if I have to replace it again in another hundred thousand, I really wont mind so much. New rear PCV hose: $15. 1 new hose clamp at hardware store: $0.65. Beautiful smooth idle again: Priceless.
