Asked by Jul 07, 2014 at 12:24 AM about the 2002 Chrysler Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Changed the cylinder head because the timing belt broke and bent two sets of
lifters.  So opted for a new head.  Reved high and found PVC hose to the
intake was broken.  Is the high rev normal until it relearns the idle again?

1 Answer


did you replace the broken pcv hose? the high rev is from a vac leak, idle will correct itself as soon as the leak is fixed
