P0171/P0174 codes - found cracked rubber elbow COOLANT PROBLEM??
Hey guys. Lately I've been getting the P0171 and P0174 codes thrown at me. I found the cracked rubber elbow on the PCV system. Today as I was taking it off, I realized that I had to remove the smaller vacuum line above it to gain access to the cracked elbow. The smaller vacuum hose attaches to the same place as the cracked rubber elbow, but on a smaller T/pipe connection right above the cracked elbow. When I removed this hose, I had about 1/8th of a cup of coolant come shooting out of where the smaller hose hooked to. What does this mean? Do I have a leaking intake gasket or what? The truck uses no coolant at all.
