Vacuum leak?

Photos attached. Dark and didn't have a light. Got oil changed today and saw this. Has oil spots around them and the hose is leaking air? And it doesn't seem the right hose from the motorcraft part. Where could I get the hoses? Autozone and oreilly doesn't carry them.

Just get those hose clamp fasteners that you tighten with a flat head on the ends to clamp them on tighter.

It's what I did to mine incase they blew off. Haha and the oil on top of your valve covers is from air/oil leaking through the piston rings lose very very little compression. It's pretty normal though for our modded motors with high mileage or one that's been raced a lot with, or over revved. no big deal my other stang did it too it ran like a champ too.

Check Engine Light came on. Is it because of the PCV Valve?

Roll over to your local autozone and have them do a free scan. If your looking for vac leaks, take some starting fluid and or carb cleaner and spray over all your hose one by one as well as the intake mani/tb. Have her running while you do so, if rpm starts to dance a bit respray that area again and see if it does it again.

Doubt it, I had a faulty PVC valve for a good month before changing it and never threw a code, but mine was the same as yours, had oil collecting all around it all over the place, change it over a year ago and not a spot of oil residue anywhere around it, so yours is not normal IMO and should be changed

if the check engine came on, and you have vacuum leaks its not normal first off, and 2 i would say it is due to the pcv but not in the sense that its the pcv. any intake leak after the maf i.e the hose on the manifold would cause the cel to come on and maybe be codes p0171 and p0174, too lean to bank 1 and 2. just my $0.02
