Can you tell me the name of the part that connects to the PCV Valve, the black tube that goes from the PCV valve accross the intake and connects to the valve cover. It is like a black tube about 12 to 18 inches long by 1/2" Dia. Mine is cracked and broke and need to know the name of the part

yes the idle speed control valve may need to be cleaned out. buy a can of spray carb cleaner and clean the throttle plate and bore, clean the idle speed control valve and clean the pcv valve. check for vacuum leaks by spraying hoses connections and elbow with carb cleaner, the idle speed will change when you come accross a vacuum leak.
I just replaced mine and had the same problem. If you look at the new one, you should find a small hole at the base of the metal tube. Using a mirror, I located the same hole in the one in the valve cover and inserted a pointed awl into it and was able to pry it out. Do it slowly since you are prying against plastic. When inserting the new one, I found that it should not be inserted as far the original one was and has a gentle snap.
It will be on the valve cover, usually a rubber tube will lead from the PCV to the intake. Be sure to check the tube for cracks. If the tube feels spongy, change it also. This is caused by the heat which makes the tube collapse and can cause idling problems and along with other issues.
Look for a large rubber tube attached to the manifold port located on the top left side (passenger) rising up and and then curving down to the rear valve cover pcv port. It is a squeeze, but work the hose off the pcv port, and "voila" the pcv valve is INSIDE the port. Pull it out with its attached grommet. Do not attempt to clean. Replace, only, and save the receipt for the engine warranty. This engine can burn oil if it is a valve seal or manifold plenum problem.
