Having problems with your 1987 Chevrolet Celebrity ?

Air Intake Hose temporary-fix or part recommendation.

\015 I own a 1987 Chevrolet Celebrity, with a 2.8L 6-cyl fuel-injected engine. There is a large hole in a tube between the engine and the air filter housing. There is another line (there are no visible holes or breakages in this line) coming from this tube, and some research may indicate this is a mass air-flow sensor, and helps to monitor air-flow into the engine, and sends data back to the ECU for air-fuel mixture.\015\012\015\012The vehicle stutters and usually stalls when idle for more than five seconds. The engine tends to rev somewhat randomly.\015\012\015\012I am pretty sure the hose is the problem, in fact I am almost certain, but what is this hose called (air intake hose?) and what can I do to temporarily fix this problem?\015\012\015\012I cannot find an air intake hose anywhere for a 1987 Chevy Celebrity. The part number I have been given is 96094, although I am not sure if this is store-specific or not.\015

You need to confirm if this has a MAF sensor or not. I can't remember offhand. It may just use a MAP sensor, in which case the hose is only critical in keeping out dirty unfiltered air. If it does have a MAF sensor you could try temporarily taping up the hose with duct or electrical tape. Or, the dealer may be able to sell you a "speed density update". GM had a lot of problems with theIr early MAF systems on the 2.8l engines and released a new prom chip that plugs into the computer and runs the engine without the MAF signal. You have to leave it in because the air temperature signal from the MAF is still used but airflow is calculated from MAP and TPS with the new prom. In fact, I would bet the conversion has already been done, even if you do have a MAF, you could check the prom ID with a scan tool. The idle problem may just be a vacuum leak, either way, the hose should be repaired or replaced to keep the dirt out of the engine. You could try the auto dismantlers, but I think most of these cars have been squished by now.
You can cover the holes in the hose with authentic (read the label) duct tape -- this sould be good as a new one.

My 2000 lincoln towncar makes a noise that sounds like someone blowing a conch shell at times. The noise seems to come from the air intake. I have removed the air filter and part of the intake hose, but it still makes the moise.

Rough idle At idle the car wants to stall but does keep running. Air filter is clean (K&N), mass air flow sensor seems to be clean, and air intake butterfly is clean, I cleaned it today by spraying a towel with throttle body cleaner and wiping off the inside as best as possible. I have noticed that removing the vacuum hose on the fuel pressure regulator does fix the issue but I'd assume only because the pressure will increase a tad by doing so. I have a fuel system pressure test kit, but I do no

Cooling system I got my 1995 Ford Taurus coolant recharged about a month ago. Two weeks later it stopped blow cold air. I took it back in and they told me it was leaking from a hose and it would cost $450 for the hose and $150 for labor. Do you know if that part cost's that much, it seems very high for just a hose. Please let me know so I can get it fixed. I just don't want to be taken advantage of. Thanks, Lindee please email me at [email protected]


I know this problem due to it happened to me. The ac lines come as a set, and you can't obtain just the one line from Ford. You might be able to out source the part and find it separate, but it would not come from Ford that way. The labor is to repla ... 1995 Ford Taurus

Heard loud backfire and found box ( part F 202 90 001 and 002)attached to air intake hose shattered . what is plastic box called and where is best place to get another. After it broke I could start car but it died almost immediately. Removed broken box and placed plastic lid over hole and secured with tape and appears to be temporarily ok as car now runs. Is there any problem driving until replacement part obtained?


No problem driving it, but expect it to idle weird. That box is not really a neccesity, only to regulate the air coming into the intake. Now your not gonna be able to get that box at an auto parts store. Your best bet is to find a auto salvage yard, ... 1991 Mazda 626

My 96 850 Turbo has a issue related to the intake tube directly off the top on the inter-cooler. In colder conditions (0deg or lower) it will collapses the hose (like the engine is trying to in more air that available) and will only idle or run at low RPM. The engine has 200k on it and it does go through oil so I suspect the inter-cooler could be clogged with some grunge. At this point I would be looking for a low cost fix (the car is just for winter driving) or can the inter-cooler be bypassed?


If you do by pass it i would leave the turbo in operation and just remove the hose of the inter cooler and put a air filter in place of the inter cooler. ... 1996 Volvo 850

I have a 92 toyota celica which has had the hose that goes from the air filter to the engine come off. Duct tape is currently holding to gether but I have to replase that all the time so I was wonder how to fix it. Do I need a whole new part? or can I buy a coupler or something?


You really need to get the correct part. Try a scrapyard first. It is critical that there are no air leaks between the air flow meter and the intake manifold. I would not recommend a coupler,they can leak. ... 1992 Toyota Celica

98 windstar while at highway speed, oil light came on. found oil around valve cover, and found a large tear in the hose near where PVC goes into valve cover.This hose runs to the air intake, filter. It also appeared the exhaust came out of the air intake when I opened it up.Neighbor thought he saw oil coming out of tear in the hose onto valve cover. Possible? Also would this make oil light come on and van difficult to start?


First thing first is that this vehicle had a few recalls for the valve coverssecond... a tear in the breather hose would cause quite a mess if you had one of the older valve covers since there is no baffle in the cover which then would sp ... 1998 Ford Windstar

I changed the air filter today and ended up having to remove that one part that connected to the air filter housing.

Car did not pass state clean air inspection tests due to high idle.

Do you know where I can get this info. Also if I fix the vacume leaks will that fix my clean air issues?
