Besides the Dealer, you should have luck with online sites for Salvage parts. Just look first in your phonebook for local Salvage or Used Auto parts. If the local places do not have it, there should be advertisement for Internet services at the Salvage place.

Second, do a websearch for Internet Auto parts. They use FedEx, UPS, and Postal right to your door, This part should be pretty light so I don't think the freight will cost much.

I have used the Internet for used boat parts, car transmissions (was shipped by Greyhound) and wiring harnesses. You can find some parts on Ebay and Craigslist, both new and used.

    Thanks for your response. I have tried the internet for used/new parts but have not seen this particular hose listed. I do appreciate your suggestions.

    You make a request for your part to a Salvage Yard. The Salvage yard puts the request on the Internet to the Website they are tied into.

    There is a Website I found by accident, for requesting used parts. The results come back direct to your own site. I wanted a Caliper and had about 40 hits. Each responding site was listed with full contact info, price, and in some cases, a photo of the part. Some sites even gave the mileage of the vehicle the part came from.

    Check these yards-LKQ 1-866-612-9798 which gives a Warranty and 30 day return, Brownstown Auto Parts 1-866-782-4005, Parts request@StoneyCreekAuto.com or their phone 1-866-727-8734

How does the air ratio work on a 2003 Dodge Neon 2.0 litre


Intake air flow meter and air intake temp sensor give ECU information; then coolant temp sensor has big influence on fuel mix, throttle position sender tells ECU what driver wants, then O2 sensor(s) do fine trim to fuel mix.

Engen problem and missing


Sir, your question is not very clear, but I will still try to post a solution here. Engine missing could be due to any problem in fuel system, ignition system, engine or ECM as well.

LOW ENGINE IDLE SPEED (Poor idling):
-Throttle body (do the cleaning and idle speed learning)
-A /C signal circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump
-Intake system
-P C V valve (clogged or open) and hose

ROUGH IDLING:
-Cylinder Compression
-Ignition system (Igniters, spark plugs, wiring harness)
-Spark plug fouled, gap too wide or too short. (1.00-1.1 mm)
-Fuel injector circuit
-E C M power source circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump (required pressure 44 psi - 49 psi)
-Throttle body (cleaning)
-Intake system
-P C V valve and hose
-Air fuel ratio sensor
-Heated oxygen s ens or
-Mass air flow meter
-Idle hunting
-Throttle body
-Intake system
-P C V valve and hose
-Air fuel ratio sensor
-Mass air flow meter

HESITATION/ POOR ACCELERATION:
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump
-Spark plug
-Ignition system
-Fuel injector circuit
-E C M power source circuit
-Mass air flow meter
-Throttle body (do cleaning)
-Intake system
-Valve timing
-Cylinder Compression

Check the mass air flow meter,, on the air intake hose. ONLY USE AIR FLOW METER CLEANER! First I would check the air filter. sounds like the engine is starving for air. Check all your vacuum lines also for leaks. Make sure all are attached to where they go. Also a possible dirty throttle body !

Change thermostat on 2004 chevy impala?


first you need drain engine coolant down below thermostat. what engine type 3.8 or 3.4 need to know.the 3.8 engine thermostat housing on top intake follow top radiator hose to thermostat housing.the 3.4 engine you have to remove air filter housing with air inlet duct with mass air flow sensor.you have to remove throttle body with coolant hoses.go to auto parts store buy new throttle body hoses old ones will be hard to remove might have to cut two small hoses also buy new throttle body gasket also. before you can remove throttle body unit you have to remove accelerator cable and downshift cable from bracket bolted to throttle body.once throttle body remove then you can remove thermostat housing bolt remove replace thermostat.

How do you remove and reinstall a mass air fow sensor on a 2003 chevy 4.8 L motor


The mass airflow sensor (or 'MAF") is located inline with the air intake from the air filter to the throttle body. There are 2 hose clamps, one on each end and a wiring harness. First, remove the wiring harness. Next, simply loosen the hose clamps and remove the old sensor. When installing the new MAF sensor, not the air flow arrow. The arrow should point toward the throttle body. Next, re-tighten the hose clamps, making sure now to over-torque them, as this could crack the sensor housing, thus ruining it. But at the same time, make sure the hoses are on snugly, as not to allow any "un-metered air" to enter the line. Install the wiring harness, and that should be it.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this. Have a wonderful holiday season!!

99 Eclipse 2.4 cid idles erratically and eventually stalls. Unplug the air flow meter and idle quality gets much better and does not stall. Does this mean I have a defective air flow meter? Engine codes...


couple of possible problems

first thing i would check is to make sure air intake hose between Mass air flow sensor and intake doesn't have any cracks holes make sure clamps are tight

secondly check for vacuum leaks carb cleaner works great for this spray around intake gaskets throttle body fuel injectors vacuum lines when spraying u notice change in idle (if idle picks up or stubles) that where your problem is example you spray around intake gasket and idle picks up you have bad intake gasket

third thing is to try and clean the mass air flow sensor they make special cleaner for this (u can use carb cleaner for this but it can leave residue on sensor and damage it so it not recomended)

my best guess for you with all three o codes is you have a vacuum leak somewhere

Where is the mass flow sensor


Typically the Mass Air Flow sensor, if that's what your needing, is located in the air intake system, between the throttle body, or throttle plate, and the air filter. some are a single sensor, others are a unit type that have the intake hoses hooked to either side of them and have a honeycomb inside. There are some that have them in the Throttle plate assembly aswell.

Restricted performance under load


I had the same problem on my 1998 XJ8. My dealer told me it was the Mass Airflow Meter, which needed replacing to the tune of around $500. After a second opinion at my local Jag mechanic, it turned out to be a hose that was broken on the lower part of the front of the engine. Check the vacuum hoses for breaks or loose fittings.

Where is the mass air flow sensor located on a jaguar x-type


hi from the uk the location of mass air flow sensor on x type jag is as follows==it is on the r/h/side of the air filter cover with jaguar embossed on top? this sensor is just prior to the intake hose that connects to the motorised throttle body from filter connections underneath it to unplug and meter is held by two screws ?if memory serves ? may i suggest you remove the large hose and use a little wd40 or similar to clean /lubricate the throttle butterfly in throttle body throat at this point so as to prevent future sticking upsetting of idling ? hope this helps ?

Car runs rough at idle and stalls when giving gas i replaced plugs,wires,throttle position senor,mass air flow sensor,fuel pump screen,and fuel filter


clean out ur throttle body, just follow the hose from the air filter to the throttle body. Need 2 people to do this. Don't remove the hose completely from the throttle body. Just enuff to be able to spray ur intake cleaner into the throttle body. Do this especially if its worse when the motor is hot, as this would confirm the problem.
