    Default '90 405 SRi - AFM to throttle body hose.

    Drove home yesterday and had serious idle issues, barely maintaing 500-700rpm and really rough.

    As soon as I opened up the bonnet I could hear the hissing sound near the airflow meter. The hose/pipe that joints the airflow meter and throttle body has developed a leak/crack around the ribbing close to AFM side.

    When squeezed the idle returns to normal and runs fine.

    This is a 1905cc XU9J2, 125hp L-Jet L3.1 I think.

    Would anyone be able to help me out with the actual name of that particular hose?

    Also, is there anyway I can use a temporary solution to get me through the weekend. Somehow minimising the air leak?

    Any help appreciated.

    Is the clamp loose or is the pipe cracked?
    If cracked, Duct tape is the go here- or some sort of sticky tape.
    Let me know if you have trouble getting another hose

    The actual crack is in the pipe.

    Yeah I bought some hose repair tape and it did the trick, runs fine now.

    Although I can tell it's probably not a permanent solution as the tape gets slightly looser and weaker under the heat but so far it has maintained the seal.

    How much am I looking at for the pipe?

    If you have any sources that would be appreciated.

    Cheers.
