I do not know the part number.What is the part number for the retaining ring that can break? Is it just a hose clamp?
I just changed this PCV hose on my 2.0L 5 speed, 2007.
You do not need to remove the Intake manifold. Just undo the two 13mm bolts holding the starter in place. Slide it over slightly and you can access the lower hose clamp from underneath. The top clamp you can access between the #3 and #4 intake tube. The hardest part is sliding the hose off and on the intake nipple. I used a long saw to cut the hose to remove it. To put back on I used engine oil to lube it.
Took me 1.5 hours. you just need 11" needle nose pliers.
You forgot the most important part. Remove the two main bolts holding the starter in place. Then wiggle the starter over a little bit to gain access to the lower hose clamp from under the vehicle.Not removing the intake manifold is a MUCH better way of replacing this hose! I had the old one out and the new one in about 2 hours. One thing I noticed is this hose is very much directional. It may be hard to tell but one end is slightly longer than the other and it makes a huge difference. The longer end goes down bellow on the intake manifold. I used a combination of long reach single jointed and double jointed pliers with long reach double jointed hose pliers. I also lubed the hose up to make it slipping on easier. Even with that it's still a royal pain in the butt to get it on. I installed the bottom side first and used another pair of pliers to push against the hose pliers for leverage to get it to slip on. Up top I used the hose pliers and a LOT of wiggling, cursing, and smoke breaks lmao. But it eventually slipped on. Also the hose clamps were glued to the line I ended up breaking them loose from the line to position them in a way that made it easy for me to release the tension onto the hose.
I looked at your Gates hose online, and it seems to be the right part. Your Gates looks like the one I used; Dorman 46034.So I got the GATES EMH151 from RockAuto since that was listed as the PCV Valve to Intake... Did I get the right part? It seemed different from the PCV Hose that I pulled out from the valve, a tad bit shorter...
If that's not the right one, what can I use to replace it?
