Ok friends, this is a 2000 model 3.0 V6 with 230,000 miles.
I’m chasing down an air leak, and my JTIS CD-ROM manual has gone haywire and I can’t open the fuel and air sections (error: ViewPort Application: can’t resolve link), so its time to play our favorite game,
"What’s this hose?"
Here are the clues for our contestants.
Rubber elbow at the back of the engine, rubber connector hose going down behind the engine, black plastic tube going forward.
The other end of that black plastic tube feeds into the throttle body downstream of the throttle plate.
Can anyone identify that hose?
The winner gets a day of all-expense-spared bragging rights.
I think the air leak might be down behind on that connector hose.
Do I have to take off the wiper box cover to get to it?
