    I installed an intake on my 1998 Infiniti I30 the other day and the check engine light is on in my car so i checked all of the connections and they are all good as far as i know and i noticed a tube that isnt not connected to anything. i looked all around and i cant find antyhgin that looks like it could connect too. im hoping that this tube is the reason for the check engine light so i can fix it and be done with it. if anyone can check their infiniti i30 or maxima and get a pic of where this connects i would greatly appreciate it. thanks for the help in advance. pics...[​IMG]

    That's a breather hose; it's meant to be disconnected. I have a midpipe in my 4th gen and that hose isn't attached to anything.

    service engine soon is not a check engine light

    if its a service engine soon it means you have to service the engine ie oil change spark plug change and so on

    there is a sensor plug that connects to one of the stock pipes that you HAVE to unplug if you remove the stock intake. If you leave the stock pipes in at the bottom you can leave it plugged in and it should not trigger the CEL

    Correct.



    If you don't know how to diagnose the light yourself, you can just go to AutoZone and they'll scan it for free. If I had to take a guess, I'd say the code has something to do with your MAF :dunno:. Ehhh, I'm probably wrong.

    Im thinking "airtemp" sensor or MAF sensor is unplugged. If your car runs fine then your MAF is still plugged in. The "airtemp" sensor is plugged in the lower left side of the stock intake snorkel. (that black tube near the radiator)


    + Yes that is a breather hose
