    Had the dreaded "Check Engine" light pop up this weekend. My '07 3.7 threw a P0507 so I popped the hood and listened for vacuum leak.

    I have noticed a small drop in power and fuel efficiency as well.

    Do you think this could be my problem??? :rolleyes:

    BTW, the other end of the hose is also cracked at the fitting.

    I've already ordered a new hose and I'm going to go ahead and change the pcv valve while I'm at it.

    Anyone have any ideas of what happened? I feel like I should have had a light WAY before it got to this point.

    The rubber just breaks down, it’s a random thing. The plastic on my washer fluid nozzle just disintegrated in the rubber hose the other day and broke for no reason.
    Where are you buying the pvc valve from?

    Yes it seems the Nitro is very hot under the hood and plastic pieces become fragile.
    Yesterday my passenger side nozzle disassmbled itself, the driver's one died purely 360 days ago.
