Question about 2003 Mazda MPV
I own a 2003 Mazda MPV 4 door minivan. The vacuum hose directly condected to the back of the engine has a crimp/hole in it right where it connects to the engine. How do I replace this? I'm not a mechanic but I do alright with most stuff. Do I have to take the entire maifold off or is there and easier way to solve this problem. I've tried getting my hands back there but to actually work on it it seems to be way to tight an area. Also, if you could tell me exactly what parts I'm going to need I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
I just had the same issue and troubleshot it with my cousin's fiance (who is a mechanic). You can reach the hose, providing the engine is cool. The key is getting some vice grips on the clamp which holds the hose to the engine. Once you get it off, the other end disconnects from a PVC elbow that goes into the crankcase. You should be able to get the hose off and then it has a label on it with the part number. I did not write down my part number.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
