I'm seeing a 2 - 3 mpg improvement since replacing the pcv hose and a worn-through vacuum line from the evaporative system purge valve. The car is running great but I may have a vacuum leak right at the intake manifold. Using a tube as a stethoscope, I can hear a hiss where the pcv hose goes in. The pcv hose is new and clamped down so I wonder if I'm just hearing air flowing through it?
