Default Stupid pcv elbow

So I had poor boost idle Flux and cel miss fire code checked change plugs still same problem. Did boost leak test found ripped elbow right next to clamp could not visible see went to my old job which was a dodge dealership. Parts guy was friend of mine got elbow for free. Installed cleared code that was two days ago back to boosting and holding at 15 psi. Anybody have similar symptoms check pcv for rips. Might solve your problems. Happy cruising.

I found the same thing today. I was installing a new PCV valve and a boomba check valve, and found the same thing. Fortunately Advance Auto up the street had one mixed in with their random vacuum fittings. Of course, somehow they were out of 3/8" vacuum line, but that's my luck. But yes, because of the location, without doing a boost test, that could easily go unnoticed.

Do both of you guys have the composite intake? I have acquired 3 of these composite intakes and all three have had holes melted through the elbow.

Mine is not the composite. There are probably a lot of people driving around with a boost leak there, and have no idea. I probably wouldn't have seen it if I didn't remove and inspect it.

I don't have the composite intake, but noticed the elbow on mine had a small crack in it where it attaches to the valve. A wrap of black electrical tape covered it just fine. I hope to replace it someday.

You need elbow lotion, Nitro. Hand lotion belongs on your hands.
