ECU question
I did a search, but, since I don't know the name I didn't find much.

What exactly does that black plastic tubing that goes into the ECU do? It goes down from the ECU to behind the air box, but, I have no idea what it does and my dealer said "Where's the ECU on a celica?" thumbsdown

this piece

BTW, why I ask is that my is often loose, and sometimes the two pieces are seperated. I am wondering if this is a possible cause of my CEL.

Aslo, the bottom piece (of the two) seems to be attached to nothing, I can move it around from side to side, should it be attached to something?

thats what I was thinking...

is it possible that this being loose could cause a CEL?

I'm still having CEL problems and I'm putting everything back to stock and trying to figure this out since my dealership thinks I leave my gas cap off on my car *WTF*
