I just changed the rubber gaskets for the intake manifold on my focus, and in the process I broke a small hose that goes into the engine somewhere on the right side near the fuel filter ( hose coming from the back left corner panel behind the engine). Engine starts, and air is coming out from it. It is safe to drive to the parts store? Can I change the hose myself ?

Possibly the PCV valve hose which is located behind the exhaust manifold ? If so you can drive to parts dept . could tape up as temp fix.

Here is a walkthrough if that is what the fault is ,

I googled the pcv and it's not that. Is a smaller hose . It comes from some kind of a pan behind the engine.

Somebody suggested that is the vacuum pump hose. Can I just change the plastic bit that connects the pump with the hose? Or do I have to buy the whole pump for that bit of plastic. It's just the 90* corner connection that is broken
