SOURCE: how do I remove the pcv valve from a 3.8 liter

1. BUY THE NEW PCV VALVE FROM THE DEALER. part #4648973AC (I paid $9.95 in the Detroit area). 2. PCV valve is located on top of 'rear' valve cover. There is a black rubber pipe connecting the PCV to the upper intake manifold. The rubber pipe is like an inverted 'U' shape. 3. To remove the rubber pipe, you will need to squeeze the band clamps. Remove the upper end first. You will then be able to rotate the lower end clockwise, if necessary, to get enough clearance to use pliers to squeeze the band clamp. Remove the pipe. 4. You should be able to see the small chrome pipe on the end of the PCV valve. However, the PCV valve is completely surrounded by a plastic collar/shroud, part of the plastic valve cover. So, the only part of the PCV that is accessible is the small chrome pipe. 5. THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO BY THE NEW PART FIRST. I needed to clamp onto the end of the PCV pipe with VISE-GRIPS. This will crush the end of the pipe. You will hold the vise grips in a horizontal fashion, towards your right, in your right hand. 6. Rocking the pipe, while carefully levering the vise grips on top of the plastic collar, you will walk the PCV valve up, and out. BE PATIENT. You do not want to crack the valve cover! 7. The rubber grommet should come out with the PCV metal valve. If not, you will need to pull it out (needle nose pliers?). 8. Install the new PCV valve. I used a film of white lithium spray to help the insertion. Note, there is a groove molded into the rubber grommet that must snap into place. I used a 5/8" deepwell socket as a 'pusher', to ease the PCV valve into place (just push, do not hammer). You should be able to feel it positively snap into place inside the plastic collar, otherwise it is not properly installed and will not seal. If properly installed, you will not be able to pull it out by hand. 9. Install the PCV rubber pipe. Slide the clamps towards the middle of the pipe, fit the pipe over PCVvalve. Be sure it is seated all the way to the bottom of the plastic collar. Squeeze the clamp and work down to the bottom of the pipe, then release. Repeat for the upper end of the pipe and spring clamp. 10. Have a cold one. You earned it.

I just replaced mine and had the same problem. If you look at the new one, you should find a small hole at the base of the metal tube. Using a mirror, I located the same hole in the one in the valve cover and inserted a pointed awl into it and was able to pry it out. Do it slowly since you are prying against plastic. When inserting the new one, I found that it should not be inserted as far the original one was and has a gentle snap.

SOURCE: PCV Valve

PCV.....stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation it will be located on the top of you valve cover either right or left.....to recognize it there will be a hose connected to the top of the PCV. If you want to check to see if you need to replace it pull the hose off pull the PCV out of the valve cover shake it it should rattle if it doesnt that means the valve is stuck either shut or open you can either clean the valve with solvent or you can replace it I suggest replace they are not expensive

How do you replace the pcv valve on a 2008 dodge


the hose is U-Shaped on the top of the manifold. It runs up and to the back. It had clamps on mine. The hose should be flexible, mine was hard as a rock so I got a new one before starting the job. The front part of the hose pulls up and off, the back towards the firewall, is where the PCV valve is fitted into a grommet and the hose. That is clamped into place. Just loosen up the clamps and PULL that right UP and out. Replace PVC and re-clamp on new HOSE. 15 mins, very easy to do !!

Location of pcv on 3.3 dodge caravan


Look for a large rubber tube attached to the manifold port located on the top left side (passenger) rising up and and then curving down to the rear valve cover pcv port. It is a squeeze, but work the hose off the pcv port, and "voila" the pcv valve is INSIDE the port. Pull it out with its attached grommet. Do not attempt to clean. Replace, only, and save the receipt for the engine warranty. This engine can burn oil if it is a valve seal or manifold plenum problem.
