hello all and i hope some one can help me.. I am having a few running issue with my car and i have browsed forums and found interesting and helpful information .. What i found from your forums was in my car the the air flow had a small amount of oil on it so i cleaned that with electrical contact cleaner,, found the fine hose to the compressor perished so replaced that and then changed the air filter. I noticed that in the air filter lid there is a soft rubber hose. Mine is extremely soft and it is practically flat. Is this the way it should be? and would this effect the running of the car?
thanks for your help.

Clean Out your Breathers and replace the flat hose, yes it will affect the running ;)
