    Default Name that hose?

    Hi Lads,

    Quick question, i havent much of a clue where engines are concerned so looking for some advice.
    I drive a 1.9 cdti 150, what is the large thick hose that runs up the right hand side of the engine if youre looking into the engine bay.
    Mine is partly detached at the top and is quite oily looking around it,
    Where it attaches to the main engine block its only secured by one bolt at the bottom and a jubilee clip, where there looks as if there should be a bolt at the top there isnt one and the pipe is loose leaving a bit of a gap, its quite oily in that area too

    I hope the above makes sense, i dont have any pics
    what i want to know is

    Should this pipe be loose
    what is this pipe for??

    Cheers and sorry for the "i havnt a clue" post

    It's the boost / intercooler pipe, if it's not connected properly you will be losing power & throwing plenty of black soot out the back... it's attached to the inlet with a large jubilee, loosen the jubilee re attach properly arouind the inlet & nip it up
