Part #'s To Fix Collapsed Hose/PVC

Postby lakeober - February 28th, 2013, 2:15 am

Hello,

I am posting because I need a bit of help with my wife’s 2002 Ford Escape (V6 4x4). The mileage on the vehicle is about to hit 200,000 miles, and it’s still running strong except for one issue. In the past month or so, we have noticed this vehicle will surge and shake whenever going up a steep hill. We took it to the local garage, and they told us that an air hose is collapsing. They said they would need to replace the PVC Assembly, as well as 2 rubber air hoses. They want almost $200 to do the work. However, I would prefer to do the work myself if possible. But, I am not sure what parts I need to order so that I can repair this. Is anyone on here familiar with this specific issue? I did a quick search, and it appeared that a few people have mentioned a similar issue to this one. I would appreciate any help or part numbers that you could provide me with. Thanks!

PS. The garage wrote part #’s on the quote, but I can’t seem to find anything online to match them. This is what they gave me:

PVC Assembly – Part #1272-2109
Hose – Part #1384-2296
Hose – Part #2521-3317

yes i know what you are talking about! I've replaced the elbow that attaches to the intake twice. It keeps collapsing when it gets warm. I purchased a copper fitting and a coolant hose elbow to fix the issue. Get a 1/2" copper elbow and the 90* coolant hose that fits the intake and PCV line. Then with patients soak the copper and rubber elbow in soap and water and carefully jamb the copper elbow into the coolant elbow. Wrinse off the new part you created and attach/replace the old one.

Hope this helps! Also replace the air filter if needed, clean the throttle body and IAC and that usually fixes most issues like you have experienced.

That sounds like a good idea, thanks for telling me about it. Nice and cheap, just how I like em'. Do you think I should replace the PCV assembly like the garage suggested, or are they just being cautious?

I don't think there is a problem with the rest of the assembly becUse to is mostly hard plastic covered with rubber. But I would inspect it for cracks or clogs if its damaged replace it.

Thanks for all the info and help guys. I believe that the collapsed hose is Ford part #YL8Z-6C658-A. I already ordered the part, and will try to install it as soon as it comes. I will inspect the rest of the hoses while I'm in there. I plan to change the spark plugs and intake manifold gaskets, so I am going to do this whole PCV thing while I have it apart and is easy to get to.

I would like to add a bit of information here on replacing the 3.0l V6 PCV valve. My PCV valve was stuck in there good after 205,000 miles and never being replaced. Previous owners... The manuals suggest using a long pliers, but it would not unscrew from the oil separator, no matter how hard I tried, but this did the trick.

If you remove the air filter housing and air plenum (where the MAF is mounted to) off of the throttle body, there is enough room to take a Deep Wall 7/8" (I think) 12 Point socket with a 12" wobble extension and remove the PCV. The 12 point socket is the key to getting over the valve, as it has a square flange on it that makes it easy to remove like a bolt. It unscrews about 180* then pulls straight out. There will be resistance from the O-ring, so you may have to then pull it straight out with a pliers.

Hope this helps!

That's one li'l bugger to get out! But with patience and a pair of long nose pliers, I finally got it out. What at location to put this simple part on the Escape V6 engine. Must be some sort of a conspiracy from Ford.

Been there done that..I tried the 7/8 socket to loosen it then pulled it off with long nose pliers..So i recommend if you have the intake off at some point that is the best time to replace pcv valve.. ;) Mucho easier
