Re: hissing noise, car dies at idle, cruise control stopped working
Ok, I discovered a few things. First, upon inspection of that big caterpillar like hose that connects from my engine to my air filter - I discovered that one of the three little connecting hoses had come loose. I pushed the little hose back into the hole in the big hose, so that problem is fixed.
However, upon further inspection, it seems I found another loose hose. I there is spark plug like boot that had come loose which is located just to the left of the brake fluid container. It's well behind the EGR valve. There are two red hoses that connect to it underneath and the rubber boot (that looks like a spark plug boot) is supposed to connect to some kind of vacuum that's protruding from behind the engine. When I reached back to grab boot the whole thing came loose. It was already disconnected from the protruding vacuum on the back of the engine, but it came loose from those two little red hoses too.
What's this go to exactly, and how important is it?? It looks like the main hose connects to the EGR from underneath. How did these all manage to come loose exactly??
I've got pictures, but they won't upload.
