VACCUM HOSE REPAIRS

2001 Ford Taurus

Transmission problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl

I am almost certain that I will have to replace my vaccum hose again at my next tune-up this fall. My question is, why would my car need its vaccum hose replaced often? Could there be a fault in my vehicles air supply? It sputters going up hill, Ultimately in winter it sputters almost every start-up and often while driving it in the winter season. My car is 9 years old. It had its MAF Sensor replaced last year, it always gets the air filters replaced ( I do it myself). Also could the sputtery start ups be associated with the fuel system? Like the fuel injectors? And is it hard to replace them? Also finacially?

The vacuum hoses are expose to heat from the engine and it gets brittle and cracks up.

Your sputtering problem could be one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
