I tried to start my vz v6 today after 2 weeks of it sitting and after it started it wouldn't idle, so i popped the hood and saw that the iac hose that connects to the intake manifold just after the throttle body was cracked. Threw a bit of tape on it for now until i can be bothered to replace it. Here is the pic of the hose im talking about

Replacement hose

Mine split also.
Went to Holden for replacement hose.
They claimed I could only buy the complete hose
assembly at around $80!
Purchased a new hose from Autobarn for $12.
Gates heater hose for KA Ford Laser,
part# 02-0127.
Just cut the elbow peice off.
Easy.

yeah, i look out for them, getting the box isnt much of a problem, well it is, but the wiring harness i need, and the clutch/brake pedal, hydralic lines master cylinder etc etc, list goes on,

might wait till i can find a stat writeoff sv6 and get the variable in/ex motor too

bumpppp......

Ive had this rough idle about 3-4 times since i got my VZ at the start of the year, so not much but still has happened. I checked the hose mentioned in this thread, and it doesnt appear to be cracked.

Anything else it could be? Or has someone got a pic of where and how big their crack is? I may have simply overlooked mine.
