I HAVE A 2003 FORD EXPEDTION THAT IS IDLE ROUGH,AND WILL EVENTUALLY STALL. TODAY I FOLLOWED THE PCV VALVE HOSE TO THE BACK OF THE THROTTLE BODY AND NOTICED THERE IS A BIG HOLE ON THE ELBOW OF THE HOSE. HOW CAN I CHANGE IT? CAN I JUST FORCE THE HOSE OUT AND SIMPLY PUT A NEW ONE? BEEN HAVING THIS ROUGH IDLE /STALL PROBLEM FOR A WHILE I CLEANED IAC VALVE, THROTTLE BODY CHANGED THE AIR FILTER AND ALSO CLEANED THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR, I HAVE A P0171 system to lean(bank 1) code
just undo the clamps, and pull. it may need some wiggling and tugging, as its been on there for 9 years now without moving. put on your new hose, and replace the clamps, and youre done. next time, try not using all caps. it doesnt make us want to answer your question anymore just because its in caps, in fact, maybe a little less.
So, the rubber elbow hose has a hole in it. Your best bet is to get the replacement from the Ford dealer. Yes, you can buy just the elbow part from the parts counter at the dealer. If they start acting all dumb (and won't help you or sell you the part) then, go to a different dealer for the part. Another thing you could try is a used one from the junk yard BUT, it's been my experience that the rubber gets too hard and the PCV valve needs a lot of encouragement to be removed. Sometimes you'll damage the used elbow by trying to get it off of the engine or removing the old PCV valve to put in your replacement valve. That's why I recommend getting a new one straight from the source. They are pretty simple to change with ordinary hand tools and some mechanical know-how. You just pull the elbow off of the port that it's attached to on the engine. The valve will probably have a steel clip that goes around the hose at one end of the valve inside of the hose. You simply squeeze the clip with a pair of pliers and tug at the valve until it comes out of the elbow.
