Default In the midst of the LIM, need some help

Well I'm most of the way torn down. I just have the LIM to take off as I'm eating lunch. I did manage to break two things. I broke one of the clips that hold that sensor that is on top of the PCV valve. It seems to still be snug with just one, so I'm figuring it'll be OK until I can find one at a junk yard or something. The other is a rubber hose piece. It is a small elbow that is in the front that connects to the tube that runs over to the throttle body. The other end of the tube has a connection that goes to the TB and one that goes to the fuel rail. Is this just like an escape route for fumes or something? The end of the rubber elbow is torn. the tube sits in there OK, but it'* not a great fit. I'm hoping it will be OK to just duct tape it until I can get a replacement.

From the sounds of it it sounds like your vacuum lines. If you can't find a replacement then try some JB weld just to get you by. Just make sure it'* clean inside, you don't want any braking off and getting in to the engine.

If possible, take pictures of what'* damaged.

Go to a place like autozone and pick up a pack of vacuum line. Then cut what you need and replace it.
