If it's the small hose connected between the breather element inside the air cleaner pan and the PCV valve, it's called the breather hose.

Where the preheater hose is connected to the engine/exhaust, the box has rusted open. What is this part called?

Thermostatic Air hose attaches to a tube welded on the plate at the top of the exhaust manifold. It runs across the rear of the engine and attaches to the plastic tube sticking out from the air filter housing

Air filter replacement. A plastic box attached to the inside front is marked as having an air filter. The plastic box, when unscrewed and w/two lg. hoses disconnected, appears sealed w/no way to open it....

The previous owner is an idiot. The air filter may be BELOW the box you are refering to. That hose is the crankcase vent and if thats not connected the engine will pull dirt in through that hose. The box has clips to secure the 2 halves of the box. get a new hose. I would not have bought the van if I saw that hose missing.

I have a 2003 Toyota Camry with the 4 cyl eng., I was changing the air filter and a hose that was attached to the rear right of the filter housing snapped off. I have been trying to get the part...

Is it a large hose going into the valve cover? If so, it could be a breather vent hose or part of the p.c.v. or e.g.r. system. These systems are sometimes tied into the air cleaner assembly.

Po446 only code that came up. Hoses are all attached 2002 Toyotal Highlander

i have an 03 highlander...i don't know if this matches your problem or not but when my air filter cover is lifted in order to check or change the air filter, it can lift a small black hose off the metal tubing that it is attached to (down behind the air filter housing...about 1 to 2 feet down). If this hose becomes detached, after some starts, the check engine light comes on. I think this is part of the emissions recirculation or something to that effect...I'm sorry...I am not mechanically oriented but I did have this particular issue as I've described. So, once I learned this, I always removed that hose from the air filter housing before lifting the top cover off the air filter housing and then always put it back once I've put the filter cover back into place. Also, when a shop does oil changes, they typically check your air filter and they usually don't know about this. I always tell them to either not check my air filter or I check the hose after they're through (I usually do anyway just to be sure). They'll pull this off and they'll never know it. You can't feel it tug when pulling the a/f cover off so you do need to check this. I don't know if the 02 Highlander is the same as the 03 in this respect but I would check behind the air filter housing and look for a small black hose and feel if it is properly connected to a metal tube that runs up from the engine below. Hope this helps.

How to remove air filter cover

If it's a 3.8L , you have to undo clamp down lower on hose below it, then lift that part off. then you'll see where that hose was attached, it has another cover over air filter that has 2 clips you snap off & then pull cover off from over air filter.

Check the O2 sensor that is attached just after the air filter. It may be dirty and could use a good cleaning or replace it.

I got this problem when I was messing with the throttle, I removed the hose that goes from the filter box to the throttle not knowing there was a sensor on that hose that tells the computer how much air is coming through the filter. So when I started the car without that hose attached, the sensor was not getting any air causing the engine to raise the RPMs until enough air was going through the sensor. Since it was not attached, the car redlined before I quickly shut it off.

If its dirty it will cause it to not read the airflow properly.
