I think I figured out the rough running while cold.

The PCV hose is collapsed next to the intake manifold.


BUT HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO GET THE CRIMPED CLAMP OFF THAT HOLDS IT TO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD???


What idiot designed that?

Well it's not a crimped clamp, but a weird snap-on clamp.

To remove it you need a tweeker screwdriver (the small-headed screwdriver PC Geeks keep in their front shirt pocket)

Pry under the bump on the clamp that's painted (yellow in my case) and it pops apart..........

What I did it just grab some mechanic plyers give it a good squeeze and it will pop off.. Then to put it on it a Bit###@ so I just bought a normal ring clamp to go around it..

on the 2001 all you have to do is take normal pliers and squeeze the two ends that are sticking out together and the whole hose will pop off or you can take a screw driver and hold on end down and push the other in with the screw driver but when i put mine back on i used an ajustable clamp its easier

The hose itself I'm not sure.

I believe I got my replacement hose from Advanced....but that was like 2 years ago.

Already replaced, but thanks.

I've only managed to find it at the dealer. The hose ends are 2 different diameters which make replacing it with normal vacuum hose off a reel difficult......
