    PCV and vent tube.

    While replacing my oil cooler, I broke the plastic vent tube right where it connects to the intake. I thought about replacing the whole vent tube line, but when I realized how hard it would be to get to the connector at the PCV valve, I decided to make a temporary fix. I installed a 4" long HD rubber hose from the broken end of the vent tube to the intake. Seemed appropriate at the time. Now that hose collapsed due to the vacuum. It still runs fine and no codes, but I want a better fix.

    Give me ideas.

    I will replace the whole vent tube and pcv valve later, right now I'm looking for flex adapters that won't collapse in vacuum.

    TIA

    Just temporary? Run a 4" length of rigid brake line through the rubber tube.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
