That hose is redirecting warm air from around the exhaust manifold into the intake, making the engine run smoother at low temperatures. Or that is the general idea atleast.
Yes, that's the idea but I'm not sure if it actually helps a whole lot. My old car had a similar hose, but it also had a cone air filter so the hose was pointing at...basically nothing. Never had problems in the winter with cold starts even when it got to -10C. If it gets lower than that, then I don't know.Oh right. So basically an ok-idea to have it fixed before winter comes.
You know, it's not registered as a low emissions vehicle. That means no one cares what's inside the engine bay. And I happen to have one, which would fit there really nicely...
Here is the
eBayengine bay. Needs all kinds of cleaning and the camcover gasket appears to seep a bit, but that's expected.
Because the ones on this are broken and decrepit, and they bring down the appearance. I won't probably use them, but I won't want to have empty sockets either.But why is everyone talking about its foglights? From previous FinalGear discusssions I was forced to believe that foglights were useless and necessary. So why mess with them?
