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.

There is a loud hissing sound coming from a hose with a foam like elbow attached to the intake. I can't find parts and its getting called different things like emissions hose, vacuum hose, pcv hose. No one seems to know what it is. It's on the passenger side. My car is hesitating and bogging down when I stop. Check engine light is on. I wish I could post a pic.
OMG!!! you saved me hundreds of dollars, thank you. fire stone did a diagnostic($89.00) and it had more than one bad read. my husband checked this site and the total repair was $7.27 for a small piece of hose.this site is wonderful.
I had the same problem with the elbow on this pcv hose. The elbow also collapsed and was very brittle it should be a metal fitting. This website saved me a ton of money thanks to all!
Error code P0174, "System too lean (bank 2)".
Yep just replaced this too along with the rack and pinion AND the transmission. Love the vehicle, very disappointed in Ford. It's becoming a very expensive lemon.
I had the same problem which escalated yesterday. It took a while to throw the codes to finally trouble shoot this.
This situation happens to me and I replace the elbow on the PCV and it fixed the situation.
Just found that problem out today!
check engine light comes on flashes and runs roung, hane not gotten it fixed yet as we wernt sure what it was, when having a diagnostics computer hooked up it came back as a bad _________ sorry my husband knows, hopefully well try and get this problem fixed and maybe it will run better. very low idle and chugs at certain speeds
hissing on passenger side. either bogs down or dies when idling.
Had to replace the PCV elbow twice in two years. Rubber elbow became weak and collapsed. I used a piece of heater hose elbow and clamps, so far (eight months)it's holding up to the Florida summer heat.
I have a collapsed engine vacum hose that is causing the car to idle then stall when stopped and the emmisions light is also on as well where to go get this replaced can it be done myself
Could not keep the vehicle running. Auto Zone informed of air loss in tubing...took to dealership and was informed that the molded plastic PVC tube was broken (air to intake prevented..._ needs to be replaced for $286.00
I had to replace the hose, by using a new hose from Autozone.
My car started running really rough, and I think my engine light came on if I remember right. I took it in and they said it was a vacuum leak. I had to replace the hoses. Of course, it ended up being several hundred dollars.
