You have the wrong type hose on the pcv valvle. It isn't vacuum hose.

Testimonial: "thank you you have been very helpful i understand now but the hose that is on the new pcv valve is a vacuum hose "

    The hose is too soft. Vacuum hose isthick walled to prevent collapse.

    And checkto make sure the pcv valve is functioning.

    In that case tat is a good question. Why is it collapsing. The pcv valve is new, the hose is new and the engine vacuum is normally 17 to 21 inches hg. The only other thing I can think of and it has happened to me on severaloccasions is that often when the hose is spooleld on the reel it is drawn too tight and the hose tends to be flattened. Of course this presets the hose to yield to thar flattened shap and although it is manually re shaped to round it has a memory and will now return to the flatter configuration with the added help of vacuun. The only time there is vacuum inthat hose is at cruising and deceleration and it is important to have the correct pcv valve so there is no restriction of flow. If it were not for backfire ignition of crankcase fumes there would be no need for the check valve feature in the valve. I hope you find remedy. Ned

Type p0171


It is a generic OBD2 power train Code. The same solution could be applied to all other vehicles as well.
Error Code: P0171
Description:
Fuel Trim (FT), System too Lean, Bank 1
Possible Causes:
- Fuel pump pressure too high or regulating valve stuck closed.
- Intake/ exhaust leak.
- Secondary air injection (AIR) system.
- Manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor.
- Mass air flow (MAF) sensor.
- Fuel pressure/pump.
- Fuel Injector(s).
- Evaporative emission (EVAP) canister purge valve.
- Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S).
Solutions:
-Usually, simply cleaning the Mass air flow (MAF) sensor helps solve the problem.
- It is best to take MAF off and spray it with electronics cleaner or high flash point solvent.
- Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary.
- Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure.

P1512 of my 00 MPV, what is the solution?


DTC P1512 - VARIABLE TUMBLE CONTROL SYSTEM (VTCS), STUCK CLOSED
The air intake hose that goes from the air filter/mass airflow sensor to the throttle body they are common to crack. This air leak can cause a lean condition if that checks out ok then the issue is usually a faulty mass air flow sensor .This would need to be checked next.

Usually the actuator valve is stuck closed. These are the most common causes of the P1512 and possible causes are:
* ECT sensor malfunction.
* MAF sensor malfunction.
* IAT sensor malfunction.
* EGR boost sensor malfunction
* TP sensor malfunction.
* CKP sensor malfunction
* VTCS solenoid valve malfunction.
* VTCS shutter valve stuck closed.
* VTCS shutter valve actuator stuck closed.
* Short circuit between PCM and VCTS solenoid valve.
* PCM malfunction.

I would start with the mass air flow sensor this can cause all these issues. Then the cat. This would be the next step.

I hope this helped (remember to rate and comment this answer).

1998 mazda mpv code p0170 erase code car runs fine but when i stop for a few minutes it is hard to start and runs rough the engine light comes back on and the code will read p0170 again


This code indicates a fuel ratio problem. I would start by inspecting all the vacuum lines, including the pcv hose and power brake hose. Carefully inspect the air intake hose. This is the large hose between the throttle body and the airflow meter. If this hose is cracked or loose the computer will not sense how much air is being drawn into the engine and it will be hard to start.
