I noticed a hissing sound coming from the air intake hose that goes into the Throttle Body after the MAF. The angle of the hose that shoots off seems to have put upward pressure on that nipple fitting, and it's started to pull away from the hose causing an air leak. Is that something I can patch with J-B Weld and call it a day, or does that call for a new tube?

you could use a high temp silicone sealant on that joint until you can source a new hose.

that would have more flex than JB Weld.
