I have the same car, make year and model. I purchased mine at about 50,000 miles. It currently has nearly 100,000. I had the identical problem with the hose to the PCV valve. My car also stalled out when I came to a stop, it ended up being the oxygen sensor. Get them to check your EGR as well. As for your fuel filter, I am surprised the car will still start. You have to replace it every 15,000 miles, along with the PCV valve. Make sure you get your transmission flushed every 20,000 miles, and get them to change the transmission belt and gasket. If you don't I promise that will be the next thing that goes out and it won't be as cheap as that hose. If you get the new fuel filter you will notice a drastic change in the performance of your car, as well as 34mpg highway.
