    lines attached to intercooler?

    Sorry to post such a minor question. It's been over an hour of searching and I can't find the answer to such a simple thing.

    What are the two lines that are bolted to the front of the intercooler on an 02 wrx??

    While putting my intake manifold back on after replace the gaskets I had one of the rubber hoses that connects to the line crack. The hose has a few bends and goes under the intake manifold. I'd much rather slip some new hose over the crack and use some hose clamps than buy the replacement hose and have to take off this Damn manifold again -_-


    Thanks for any input

    Don't know. I just replaced a few of mine that were cracked and never had a CEL. I don't think the breather hoses would cause that. I'd be looking for broken hoses etc. on the vacuum lines in the front of the intake manifold. Around the purge valve and that little blue Tee connector.

    I'd search NASIOC for help diagnosing, or your owner's manual. I've never dealt with that code before.

    Most common things I've seen from other people are broken evap purge valve or loose gas cap.

    The cyl head vents route into the turbo inlet pipe. If the line was cracked, you would have a minor vac leak.
