	There are three breather hoses that should be checked and I recommend
replacing all at the same time.One comes off of the drivers side of the
engine and connects to a steel tube.Follow that steel tube towards the
valve cover and you will fidn a rubber tee (three outlets)it is probably
bad also.The rear of this tee has a plastic elbow in it and a rubber
hose on that heading over to the passenger side of the veh,they go bad
as well.If my memory serves me correctly the total cost for the three
hoses $75us. And should take about 1/2 hour to install.
