Smoke will not pour from the exhaust due to the PCV system, PCV means "Positive crankcase venthilation" A vent valve. Smoking issues can be tough. things to look into: O2 sensor, EGR Valve if equip'd, worst thing, the piston rings are letting oil pass into the combustion chambers...

Take the pcv valve out of the hose and check it...Shake it,if it rattles it probably is good..But a new one would not hurt.Make sure any other ventilation hoses are routed right.If it only smokes while the hose is connected,then it is pulling oil from the valve cover into the intake and burning in the combustion chambers...Check your oil level as well...Good Luck!!!

Locate pcv on 2008 escape 6cylinder


The PCV valve is installed into the rocker cover using a quarter-turn cam-lock design to prevent accidental disconnection. High retention force molded plastic lines are used from the PCV valve to the intake manifold. The diameter of the lines and the intake manifold entry fitting are increased so that inadvertent disconnection of the lines after a vehicle is repaired causes either an immediate engine stall or does not allow the engine to be restarted. In the event that the vehicle does not stall if the line between the intake manifold and PCV valve is inadvertently disconnected, the vehicle has a large vacuum leak that causes the vehicle to run lean at idle.

99 ford escort zx2 cleaned maf sensor, still idleing rough, already changed o2 sensors, is there another sensor i should check?


listen up! here is the solution I have had to replace two of them on two engines and they are always missed diagnosed by dealers because the techs these days dont understand the basics of a 4 cycle gasoline engine and they use scanners to find problems, instead of checking for fuel, spark, compression, and vaccum.
On the under side of the intake manifold (accessisble only from the underside of the car) you will find a 3/8 inch vaccum line that goes all the way around the engine to the pcv valve on the front of the engine just below the valve cover. This hose rot's right at the intake manifold nipple. this happens because of the heat coming off the exhaust manifold that is very close. So becareful when inspecting. Its avalible from Ford for aproximatly $20.00. have fun and tell the dealer to shuv it.

    Where is the pvc valve on a 2002 ford taurus? and how do i replace it?


    Hello
    The PCV is below the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation valve) valve close to the intake manifold below the intake air sensor, there is a tube running to it from the engine to recirculate exhaust air with fresh air, there is a clamp holding it to the air intake that you need pliers to remove, then you need to turn counter-clockwise 90 degrees to remove, do the reverse to install. to make it easier to access remove the upper intake. The PCV valve is not visible, however, you can identify it by the 3" inch long rubber hose that connects to the steel line running into the bottom of the intake. I have the part and am going to replace it soon, although Ford really makes it difficult to remove it - PCV valve is located just under the throttle body. remove air cleaner assembly from throttle body and you will see a u shaped hose running horizontally.

    System Too Lean (Bank 1) Symptoms include stalling at idle, rough idle, poor MPG, loss of power, high pitch sucking sound from the engine bay. This is typically caused by a vacuum leak. The most common cause is a hole in the elbow at the PCV valve. It may be hard to see so you'll want to pull it out to check it. Also look at the elbow that connects the PCV hose to the intake manifold. It can get a hole there as well. This is 90% caused by a vacuum leak and not the O2 sensor. Most people (ignorant ones) will just say it is the sensor because it set the code. That code is a good sensor reporting a lean condition. Just replacing the sensor without checking for other problems first would be like replacing an entire wire harness when a light goes out instead of checking the bulb and fuse first. Other causes can be a bad sensor, bad MAF, low fuel pressure, or an exhaust leak. To fix the elbows on the PCV valve you can pick up new ones from the HELP section of the local part store. The part numbers for the elbows from the Help section are:
    47028
    47029
    The one that goes on the intake manifold fits the nipple on the manifold snugly. But, it doesn't fit snug on the line so you'll need to use a clamp on that part. The one on the PCV valve is a very tight fit at both ends. If you don't want to bother trying to rig this up, you can purchase a new line from Ford. The part number is: F8CZ-6853-CA.

    Most likely you have a leak, its either a vaccum leak (could be the intake manifold, or most likely it is just a PCV Line, these are hoses leading from the Head cover to the intake manifold) or leaking EGR (exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

    At an Idle your 4.0 creates a vacuum between the throttle body and the intake valves. As you need more throttle less vacuum is created. The PCV ( positive crank case vent) works off this vacuum. At the back of the valve cover there is a vacuum line that goes to the intake manifold. This line can become clogged. An engine produces "blow by". If you were to take oil cap off you might see it at an idle. Check the air filter. there is a line from the valve cover that leads to the airbox. this is where the "blow by" goes when pcv line is clogged. Part 1 the problem...... part 2 the fix.

    I am installing a Holley 2818 on my '65 327 and need help with routing the PCV lines. Which line goes to the PCV inlet on the carb? The rear block inlet or the one on the oil filler neck?


    On the 2818 holley there is a calibrated elbow on drivers side of carb about centre of the main body.This connects to oil filler stand pipe in front of intake.Fresh air hose goes from air cleaner to back of block where road draft tube used to be before PCV came along.
    The calibrated elbow serves as PCV metered orifice.Be sure flame arrester screen is inside of air cleaner on fresh air connection.

    Location of the pcv valve on a 96 chevy cavalier


    it should be in the top of the intake manifold, the air cleaner tube goes into the throttle body and there is a little line that runs from the air cleaner tube into the pcv value and is screwed into the intake manifold.

    Depending on model you find it in either rocker cover, possibly at rear or in the oil filler cap if early motor.
