Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I see that you've had some issues with hesitation and fault codes setting, you're replacing the PCV hose and valve and a shop has diagnosed one of the problems as being an internal failure in the ECM.

What is the year and model of the vehicle?

What kind of help were you looking for?
