Does that Explain the Rough idle on my car?
I just Bought this Car and I'm comparing it to my friends car and i believe i am missing that hose
piece. what does that do? Pls. anyone help me!
I believe the piece you are talking about is the PCV or positive crankcase ventillator tube, what allows crankcase air to go on a one way street up into the intake----if it's missing, you'll be suckin' air and puffin out with oil smoke-
one of these?
Omg You Guy are a BIG HELP for Beginners like me! God Bless you GUYS!!!! Nissan 300 RULES!! haha
hmmmmmm.Now i am really Confused :(
Whoa...I certainly did not mean to cause confusion, I was only re~affirming Bob. he has it. What confuses you? I would be happy to help set things straight..
I think i don't have either of these too. hmmmm. Im going to check it now. crap... it's cold outside :-s
You must have them, in on variety or another. If the hose for the PCV valve is missing, not anything hooked up to the vacuum source you will have a massive vacuum leak, very bad, you would be able to hear it, and the idle will be very rough if it idles at all. What is that picture of?
I don't know what Bob or David are seeing but in the picture it looks like the arrow is pointing to a bushing on the throttle linkage.
If i am not mistaken it's this one i am missing?
Yep TS I enlarged it and you are absolutely correct, it is.
Bow on that bottom picture, it's hard to tell..but it looks like that is not a vacuum source, but being right behind the water pump it may be a heater hose. Does your heater work?
I Never Been So Thankful in ALL MY LIFE working on a Car Project! Thank You sooo much sir! Thanks to Bob nueske and tenspeed too! I hope the parts i'll be needing wont cost me much :( Happy Sunday God bless you all!
hmmmm heater works. but i'm not really sure.. For sure the guy that i bought the car from said AC isn't working..
I wish the Site will allow us to post 10 sec videos :(
The PCV valve itself is about $20, and hoses not real expensive
I can see it in the second picture. The arrows are pointing at the gold towers not the throttle linkage. It does look like it's missing a pair of hoses from the cam cover to the intake. Probably positive crank case vents.
I'm Going to Check My local Auto Shop for it.
