PCV Hose Question

I noticed that the PCV valve hose is collapsed when the engine is running so its like flat pinched together. I know its a vacuum line but is it supposed to do that??

If it's drawing that much on the hose then the PCV valve is stuck or plugged.
Change the valve.

A good auto store should stock bulk (Goodyear) 3/8 fuel/emissions hose.
It is thick enough to withstand collapsing on vacuum.
Cost $1.40 vs. $80? at dealer.

The hose I'm talking about is the short one that goes from the pcv valve to the intake

Isn't that part of the whole PCV assembly?
Just go to your parts store and ask them, there computer will tell you which hose will fit if it isn't part of the assembly.

This has come up a few times on here before. The only real option is going to be to go to Ford and buy it, they sell one that is updated and has ribbing to reinforce it.

The short hose on the 3.0 that goes from the intake that's zip tied on and goes down to the pcv valve.

Korey and I both know the hose your talking about.
If you go to the Ford Dealer, they'll have a reenforced hose that won't collapse anymore.

It's a lot. You have to buy the tube that it's connected to as well. It doesn't come separate

Is this similar to the cracking PCV elbow on the 4.0's?

If so, Racer Parts Wholesale sells a poly urethane elbow for like $10 or something
