I changed the PCV valve on our car while I had the cross brace out to get at the brake booster, but the PCV valve end of the hose was rather hard, and I'm not sure that it's sealing well to the new PCV valve. The rubber hose is larger at the PCV valve end than at the end that goes to the water-jacketed section of metal tube -- and has a 90-degree bend in just a short length of hose -- so I'm not sure that sold-by-the-foot hose will work: it probably will kink. Went to the Chrysler dealer today to buy the genuine article, only to be told that they sell only the complete assembly with two rubber sections and the water-jacketed metal section for approx. $150!!
Any good suggestions for a way around this?
