    I removed the throttle body because of a faulty Throttle position sensor. When I removed it i accidently yanked this hose out of where ever it was connected too. Can anyone help as to what this is for and locate where it goes too? Keeping in mind that the engine is an L67 but the TB is the same as the ecotec.

    Thats the hose that joins to the MAT or MAF sensor, can recall which;)

    Must be connected or you will be running rich and idling crazy.

    interesting... a little off topic but this isnt on the pressure side of the blower is it? I am mighty puzzled as to where I could possibly attach a boost gauge on the L67...

    On your inlet manifold below the snout is a little pipe with a rubber plug...thats where the yanky motors run a MAP line from.... I guess thats the easiest spot to hook one up...:thumbsup:

    The MAF is on the intake pipe. This particular hose is about 18cm long and runs around the back of the engine. The idle is already really bad. Started it today and was idling so low that it was almost stalling. Came back to it a few hours later and now it's idling at about 1500rpm then increases up to 2000rpm. Makes no difference when it goes into reverse or drive. I put it into reverse and the wheels nearly launched out from under the car. Not good! :( I did a check for codes and got "code 19" - Throttle position sensor sticking. Think I'm up for a new TPS.

    Doesn't go to the fuel pressure regulator?

    Not sure about a S/C Commo but follow the fuel lines from the tank to the engine and they must go thru the fuel pressure regulator before they go to the fuel rail and then the injectors. On a normal Ecotec it is at the rear of the motor in the middle of the V with a fuel line in and out plus a vacuum line connector.
    Good Luck.

    Did you check the back of the drivers side head ??? that's where that hose goes on my motor. There's some sort or vacuum devise bolted to the head which that hose connects into...I can't really help much more than that I dont have an electronic camera...you should be able to see or feel where the hose goes...

    Thanks dude, will have a look today after work. Couldn't do much about it last night in the dark. Always better to work in the daylight.

    I think you'll find it goes to your purrge valve.
    Itsd on the drivers side head at the back of the engine. Its its off, your idle will be up **** creek amoungst other things.

    Yeah tell me about it... I can see now in the daylight that it is part of the vapour recirculation / evapouration canister hardware... the thingmabob must be a switch of some sort that activates the line to the canister when the motor needs to use it.:thumbsup:

    Sorry for digging, but;
    1) What would one call that little elbow?
    2) Where would one purchase it (been to peps, repslow, supersheep, wreckers, etc)?

    Nobody has seen it, and I need at least the elbow, but would rather purchase a few completes (new ones if possible) for spares just incase I break more in the future.
