Exclamation PCV HOSE HELP

Hi, I'm new to this forum but I have used it many times in the past, it has been helpful, except!

Forgive me because I do not know much about mechanics so I will do my best to explain what I'm talking about

I'm experiencing a problem with my 2002 PT "touring edition", When the vehicle is ON I noticed a "hissing" noise. I took off the plastic cover to unveil a hose that is split and sucking in air. When I put my finger on the hose it brings the cars RPM's down as if it were to stall, but then idles back to normal. I've been told that it is called a PCV Breather hose. Though, no parts store seems to know what i'm talking about. The hose goes from the engine, back to somewhere around where the air intake would happen. It seems to have a sharp almost "U" turn shaped bend in it. So I don't think I could get any other hose to work with out it kinking.

I can't seem to find this hose, It seems simple enough to fix.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Go to the dealer and buy the hose.

I agree with Jerry. I tried looking up the hose but couldn't find anything but the valve itself. In the meanwhile, wrap some black electrical tape/small piece of duct tape around the split till you get a new hose.

Yep, hose is a strange one-- it has different inside diameters on both ends, and also does that cute little 180* degree turn/twist deal. Gotta love Chrysler!

I too had the same problem. Although my Ltd Edition PT wasnt just hissing it was overheating too and sounded like it was going to stall. Took the engine cover off and noticed the split pcv hose. I think the oil in the hose has made the rubber rot. I replaced it temporarily with a hose of a similar size with couple of jubilee clips (just so I could drive it home) - but you have to make sure the hose doesnt kink which is difficult! and means you wont be able to get the engine cover on until you get the proper piece of hose. - as I say, dont try this unless you have to) Car now normal. I have ordered a new hose so will swap when I get it. Runs perfectly. What I want to know is, should I change the pcv valve too? Could this be responsible for 'rotting' the hose?

The valve is pretty cheap and you can pick them up at auto stores rather than a dealer. If you want to see if it's working, take it off and shake it. It should make a rattling noise from inside the valve. If it hesitates or doesn't rattle at all, replace it. Better yet, if you have 40/50,000 miles, just replace it, no questions asked.

Gid; replace the pcv valve too. Mine cost $15~ from the dealer. I believe their product would have valving made more specific to their engines.

Actually they are nothing special and under NitroPT's testing was not first in quality. Leaking is a big problem with all the brands out there. Boosted PT's most affected. That said, replace it, they all go bad.
