I noticed that I have a decent exhaust leak yesterday and decided to take my day off to find out where it was coming from. Well I found a huge crack right under my AIV. Its in the tube that runs from the AIV around the motor and into the intake. My question to you is can I still purchase this tube from a dealer or am I going have to try and get mine welded up.TIA

I would take the aiv tube off, cut a very small section out where the crack is,
then put a vacume hose over the section you cut out.

or you could just get one from someone on the forum... im sure there are many people that just have them lying around.... but petes idea seems easiest and would most likely be free... just watch out for what type of vacum hose you use... id stay away from heater hose and go with emissions grade stuff.

The tube that runs from the AIV to the intake is rubber. You shouldnt have any exhaust gases in that.

The beginning of the tube is rubber, about 3 inches worth, the rest is metal... I know, I double checked on my car. Definitely not all rubber.

Sounds like cutting a section out and using a rubber connector is the least expensive and best way to go.

Peace Out,

Its my bad anyways. It wasn't the AIV tube. Blah I messed up my abbreviations. It was the EGR tube and I have already fixed it with some ******* weld (JB).
