Default PCV hose to airbox sponge?

Hey all, me again.

Was just out doing some general poking around under the hood and I noticed that I have no hose going into the airbox where the sponge is located. The nipple is on the outside of the box but that's it.

That got me looking around trying to find where the other end of the hose should be coming from and I can't find it for the life of me.

Can anyone point me to where the PCV nipple on the engine is? I'm thinking it should be on the valve cover somewhere but I can't find it.

Thanks!

It located a few inches from the airbox, on the valve cover, right under the intercooler pipe Maybe you can see it on my gallery.

Yep, just underneath the cold up pipe on the right edge of the valve cover.

Ah! Found it. Was not expecting it to be sticking out in that direction. No hose there either.

So... now what to do.

That looks mighty tight under the up pipe... could I fit a small breather filter on there? That's how I had it set up on my Cobalt... but the PCV nipple on the LSJ was on the back side pointing toward the firewall.

Other option would be to go to the hardware store and get a new length of hose. Anyone know what size hose that is?

Thanks guys.

Iirc, it was 5/8".

I used a fuel line rather than a cheap windshield washer hose. Have to keep in mind that the engine bays get rather hot and a cheap hose will wither away within a few minutes. It's not expensive but it can be an inconvenience to replace every so often.

Thanks XtrmDC2 I had the hose come off of my K&N air filter on the far end and had no idea of where to put it back on to. It had oil on the end and was torn but I never would have found it without you description. Thanks a bunch. Steve
