Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to the replace an air intake hose on this 1998 Toyota Camry, and the procedure is pretty much the same for vehicles between 1997 and 1999.

Items you'll need include an air intake hose from 1AAuto.com, a 10mm socket, and a ratchet, and an extension, and a set of pliers, and some penetrating oil.

Open the hood and secure the hood prop. The intake tube on our 4-cylinder '98 Toyota Camry runs from the air box. It takes a line in from the PCV, and it goes to our throttle body. Using a 10mm socket and ratchet, loosen the clamp at the air box down below here.

On the throttle body, you can use a pair of pliers to remove the clamp on the breather for the PCV. Remove the intake boot from this pin on the bottom, spraying a little penetrating oil on the rubber is going to help to free it up. Remove the boot from the vehicle. Your intake hose runs from the air box to the throttle body, and allows clean air to get into the engine.

Here we have our old part from the vehicle, and our new part from 1AAuto.com. You can see that both hoses are identical, have the same provisions for the PCV, the same baffle, the same inlet, and the same tab underneath. As well as, the same size hole to the throttle body, and retainer for the vacuum line that runs over the top.

It's very common for these boots, especially on older high mileage vehicles, to become dry-rotted and brittle, causing cracks. Which means your vehicle can end up with a vacuum leak or an unmetered air flow, causing it to run rough, set off check engine lights, among many other symptoms. It's easy to change, easy to check, and can save you a lot of headache when repairing your vehicle.

If your old intake boot is dry-rotted and cracking, or already has a hole in it, causing you to have a rough running condition or a check engine light, then this new intake hose from 1A Auto is going to go in direct fit just like your original equipment and fix you up right.

We'll remove the old intake clamps from your old intake hose and move them over to the new part. Our new intake pipe doesn't have the hole to sit into the stud on the bottom, so we won't have to worry about that during reinstallation.

Reinstall the intake pipe into the vehicle, connect to the throttle body, the air box at the front, as well as down below. Then connect the PCV line on the side. Reconnect the clamp on the PCV, and use a 10mm socket and ratchet to tighten down your other three clamps. Reinsert this vacuum line into the retainer on the top of the hose.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
