Can you please describe the symptoms/problems you were having as the result of the pcv hose after installing the cossie manifold? I am having weird problems just(but not immediately) after installing the cossie.

warneej, any chance you have pictures with the IM off of your PCV delete? I get what you're saying, but I just can't quite picture how you dumped it in my head. Everything else (cap the IM, cap the intake, filter on the breather on the valve cover) all make sense.

I'm just waiting for the weather to clear to (basically) pull off my front end for a super-thorough cleaning and a bit of painting in the engine bay, and would like to take care of the PCV while I have the IM off.

Your wish is my command, old old old images but they'll work:

First, remove the hose that runs from the intake tube to the valve cover. Plug the intake hose and put a filter (or a filtered catch can is best) here:


Out of here run a hose straight to the ground (I just bought a foot or two of properly sized heater hose and routed it down:


Then using a cap (such as a radiator bypass cap, which come in a multi-pack at your local autoparts store in the HELP! section, use one here and another on the intake tube. I didn't need clamps as they fit snugly but you make the call):


Or if you have a Cosworth then plug the corresponding port on the back of that.

Thanks a ton! That 2nd pic is what I was looking for. Rep added.

Great Pictures.
Question, does the PCV valve pull out easily from that plastic assy??
Do you know what size hose??
I was looking online at pcv valves and every one looks different.
Tnx, Mike.

The valve has some sort of removable collar around it. It does not just pull out. The hose is like 5/8s I believe. AutoZone stocks the PCV valve so don't mess around online for it.

Sorry to bump an old thread. My wife's car had this buzzing noise develop recently and eventually threw a code (P0171-System lean). It sounded just like the OP problem. Thank you all again for posting this since I actually came to this thread via a search on Google. You ppl saved me alot of cash since I was able to do it myself(4 hours- had a mishap with the EGR vacuum conn on the intake.. ). Im a Subaru guy but I really appreciate these car forums for all the good knowledge and resources they offer. BTW the car only has 50K.

Today i took off my manifold wich was a pain in the a$$. Specially the bolts in between the manifold. My PVC hose was all messed up and had oil. Do i just go to Autozone and get a piece of hose or order one for my car?
