Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 129000 miles
There seems to be a slight problem with my vacuum hose leading to the egr valve? I'm not fluent in mechanical terminology, but every time I start the vehicle, it sounds weak, and the hose keeps popping off. I had a similar problem a few weeks ago to where my car would actually not start, however, I just popped the hose back on and it worked fine. Im located in arizona, and I believe that the weather changes might be screwing with the shape of the hose. Would this affect the way my car would start or even run? Is it a hose problem or an egr problem? I appreciate your help.
