He needs to loosen the clamp first. And clean the aluminum and the boot with some brake clean

Looks like he should just have to loosen the clamp and work the boot back on.

He's actually just out side Fernley. Looks like he's got the hose on but clamp won't stay on. Just sliding off.

How common is this issue? And why would it happen if it's just a fresh air intake?

oil from the crank case vent (ccv) is routed into intake. it was originally for emmissions compliance so it didn't vent to atmosphere but some people "claim" the ccv needs suction to properly vent... in anycase the oil from the ccv gets on the Cac boots the black soft hose with the 2 clamps that popped off and slides off under high-boost situations so he was running it hard when it popped or it was just soaked in oil...

1. break blean the cac boots and re-tighten the clamps
2. make a ccv re-route kit at your own risk

should be fine just cleaning the oil off and tightening the clamps. its comone issue. might wanna ask if he was hot-rodding it or not though...

p.s. should be a 10m wrench or socket will fit all if not most cac boots hardware to re-tighten...

Justin,

Thanks for reply. He was able to get boot back on and tightened enough to get to auto parts store where he bought a new wrench and deep drive socket. So far so good.

Thanks again.

BTW-he is pulling a big box trailer, no hot rod, only under stress....
