I cannot get the hose off of the PCV valve on my 02 dakota with the 4.7. I need to replace it, any suggestions? Thanks

Try running something like an ice pick or thin screw driver between the valve and the hose. Do this in 2 or 3 places and twist the hose off. They can be a real bugger at times.Put a lite coat of anti seize on the new one.

because he's replacing the valve, not the hose.

if that hose is that hard to come off
then it means its not very pliable anymore
and should be changed too

The hose connection with th PCV valve is real tight, and it's in an awkward location for two-hand access.
One trick that works sometimes is to push the hose on a bit more to break the grip, then you can work the hose off by twisting the hose a little while pulling on it.

PCV valve hoses are preformed with needed curves. For this reason they are somewhat harder then water hose. They do develop some vacuum and you don't want them clasping.
