iminhell Yes that hose is avail. separate.
NAPA # 715-1783 is one possible.
Just bring the old one with and match it up. NAPA will be the Balkamp section. O'Reilly's will be the Motormite Help! section.

PCV or Not???

Hi all...
My daughters 2000 "Hocus Pocus"(by Focus...I'm sure some of you "old" guys know what I'm talking about!)with the "Z-Tec" engine has a stumbling/MPG issue(low-mid 20's). She just bought it for nothing as it's got 240K on it. It actually is in good condition for it's age and mileage.

I started with the basics. Fuel/Air/Spark. I replaced the plugs which were old, and then tore into the "air" side of the equation.

I saw what I think is the PCV valve on the front of the engine block next to the exhaust manifold. The hose/metal tube runs under the cooling "block" to the back of the intake. I then read that the PCV is in the valve cover and has a hose to the air box(where I found the sponge-like filter disintegrated).

So....what did I fight with to remove? It sure LOOKS like/rattles like a PCV valve.

Also...as I removed it, I noticed the small 90 bent hose was split. Is this available seperately? It was pretty well cooked on and a REAL PITA to get off.

Thanks in advance!
