Hey Guys i took my engine cover off the other day and the pcv nipple for the crankcase vent system was broken. I got a new nipple coming from eeuroparts.com but i was just wondering if the vent system attached to throttle body housing cause i have a vent hose coming off of the housing and isn't attached to anything and it looks to be the right length to attach to the pcv check valve? Thanks for the help!!!

Man is this thing slow today.
The Y shaped PCV nipple small hose does indeed connect to the PCV check valve and thence go to the TB.

And what would happen if a man were to use some used vacuum hose from a Honda and a used VW check valve and if he were to repair the broken Y fitting ??

The answer : absolutely nothing.. My "labor" is free.. The knowledge - the same..
The "victim" ??
I'll have to reciprocate on this one, its the daughter's car.. :cheesy:

Maybe it is better to upgrade the PCV system with the latest kits.
I am going to do mine this weekend together with a head bolt retorque and a new flex pipe, trans mount and engine mount.

New PCV fixes (including the latest, iteration 6) is not necessary for T-5 cars. For your car however, yes, definitely go ahead and do that now. I am impressed that you are undertaking so many preventive maintenance and other prophylactic measures. Keep up the good work.
