PCV Hose for an 03?

Sorry to junk up your forums with basic questions. I did a few searches and got nothing. The PCV hose on my wife's 03 is now 90% electrical tape and I wanna change it. Thing is I cant find it on rockauto, amazon, or even dodge part websites.


Is this gonna be a dealer only thing? I tired using bulk hose but the curve was to much and it kinked.

Axe and you shall receive.

I've done a few posts on the trick for this that will give the best long-term results for the least cost.

Excerpted from post no. 6 here: Pcv
- it's been verified a couple of times within the last year or two that you can still order the inexpensive single-piece molded hose from dealers to cut up for a perfect fit - hopefully still true. That post is a couple of years old, so prices may have changed since then. I've made the text about the PCV hose blue. I've left the non-blue text in as it may also be useful info.:

For future reference, you can replace just the hoses (and re-use the heat exchanger because they don't need to be replaced), but you have to be clever about it by ordering the hose for the pre-heat exchanger design and cutting the hose in 3 pieces and discarding the center section. Cost of the hose that way is under $15.

There's a second hose - the crankcase breather hose, which also is under $15. Did you replace that, because they get real bad too? It is part of the PCV system, and is just as important as the PCV hose. It connects between the passenger side valve cover and the intake tube (less than a foot long with a 90 degree bend). You might want to also replace the elbow that it plugs into in the valve cover because they get brittle and often break when you remove the old hose - shouldn't be more than $2 or $3...

...EDIT: P/N for the PCV hose to cut and use with the heat exchanger is 4663961 (post no. 5: PCV questions - DodgeIntrepid.Net Forums - Dodge Intrepid, Concorde, 300m and Eagle Vision chat). It is actually the part for the 3.2/3.5 engine (before the heat exchanger was added), but it works great for 2.7 as well for cutting and using with the heat exchanger.

Dan - I believe beyond sometime in the '00-'01 timeframe, all our engines came with the PCV heat exchanger. FWIW, the ol' "cut up pre-heat exchanger 3.2/3.5 PCV hose" trick works equally well for either 2.7 or 3.2/3.5 with heat exchanger.

Now I can replace the Mickey Mouse setup I put on after changing the PCV on the 2000 R/T. Destroyed the original hose trying to get it off the original PCV.

Also my pictures will give people an idea of what they're getting when they order this. Might help for the people with heat exchangers that have one section of the hose fooked up.

For 2002 and later people with heat exchangers if you had part of a hose trashed you couldn't just order that hose section...you had to order the entire heat exchanger assembly with hoses. 3-4 years ago that was around $200. With Sergio at the helm...I'm sure that price has skyrocketed!

All dealer's I called couldn't get it and a couple didn't know what I was talking about. Yea I know 120.00 is insane for 3 hoses but it's my wife's daily driver and if the old ones went 115k it's money well spent. The car will be scrap before they need changed.
