Hello fellow trax peeps! I needed some help as to find out if i am maybe missing a hose clamp in my air intake duct. I have been trying to learn more on the automotive side so i can do my own maintenance on my Trax. The PO299 code has popped up 3 times so far in 108k miles, and disappears right away. Most recently the code also says "de ice air intake system" but being i live on a reservation in the desert, there is no ice. I did clean out the air filter which is almost new, and the housing i cleaned with microfiber cloth. I am going to replace my turbocharger as well since the dealership says it needs replacing. I included in image to see if i am in fact missing a hose clamp. Thank you for any help!

No clamps there, just press fit. But you could tighten the clamp at the throttle body to help with that P0299. You probably don't need a new turbo, these last forever if maintained.

Ok, i will try that later on and see how that works. I juts wanted to replace the turbo because my MPG has really shot down since it started. Ive been a daily highway driver for the past 7 years and never had an issue with MPG until the PO299 code showed up

MPG will go down if you're not producing boost. You really need to check boost side for leaks.
