Check Engine Light Due to a PCV System Vacuum Leak on Lincoln Navigator

A vacuum leak from the PCV grommet vacuum leak can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The molded rubber hose connections may crack and collapse, causing the vehicle to run roughly. A damaged PCV hose will require replacement.

My truck was idling rough, it would go up and down they shout off. I changed the pcv valve located under the hood by the driver side window and it ran great. The plastic that they used had to have come from the Mc Rib.
