ok PDFE sensor changed, new PCV hose
still have the issue checked all vacuum hoses all are good
what else should I look at?
Sometimes when it loses power I feel feedback in the gas pedal.
EDIT
Here is more info, car is usually fine at 1/3 throttle below 3k rpms
Over 3k it runs great, but below anything more than 1/3 throttle surges and feels like "popping" in the gas pedal.
So I doubt fuel is an issue and now from stops taking off I almost always need the AC off.
I need help can't afford stealership
would alternator effect this in anyway?
and for some reason this thread does not come up when I search?

why isn't my thread showing up anymore?

crankcase vent tube. It starts out in right front as a steel tube, and under the throttle body, it connects to the rubber hose that goes behind the engine.
They collapse. I just had one go bad. No leak, just flat as a flitter.

the metal tube up front collapsed? I have already replaced the rubber hose for the collapsing problem and that helped a bit, I'll check it out again and make sure it's still on securely

No, sorry I confused you. The rubber tube crimped at the back of the motor. Did you replace it with the new style insulated hose?
