    confused Vectra GSI (3.2) 2003 - Which Hose?? The dealer don't knows!!!

    Hi,

    I took my Throttle Body off at the weekend to give it a good clean and noticed that one of the hoses going into it is perished. I didn't remove it for fear that it would disintegrate and therefore want to get a replacement first! So, I went into the dealers today to order a replacement but they are baffled as to which hose it is as none of thier drawings are showing it, so I'm really hoping you guys can help me out!

    It's one of the bottom three hoses -the one that goes up into the bottom of the Throttle Body as you are looking at it when it's in it's normal position attached to the plenum (not one of the two that go into it parallel). It is a rubber hose at the end attaching to the Throttle Body, but plastic for the remainder and attaches to some electrical connection to the rear of the plenum. I'm thinking it might be the Fuel Evaporation hose - anyone have any ideas?

    One more question - I want to replace the spark plugs but understand from the dealers that the seal on the intake flange may perish once the plenum has been removed - is this likely to happen, as you can only replace the whole intake flange as the seal is not available seperately?

    Many thanks for any help that you can give!

    dae - which one is it on here? http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35586

    VX changed my plugs at 65k miles (6 years old) and didn't change the gasket as the old one was OK.

    Regarding the plugs, this might help http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=53309

    Hi there, Here is a picture with arrows pointing to the hose in question (it has started to crack around the end fixed to the throttle body). Any ideas as to what it is?



    PS. I successfully changed the auto transmission fluid - went without a hitch, just had to spend a bit of time getting the fluid up to the right level (mine was nearer to 4 litres) - thanks for your help on that.
