SOURCE: pcv valve

I have a 98 4L SOHC . The valve seems to be behind the intake manifold. The emissions diagram shows 2 hoses going to it. Local dealership swears Part #EV225 is correct. You would not believe how much of the internet is devoted to this situation

SOURCE: where is the pcv valve located on a 2003 ford ranger

  • The PCV valve can be located in several places. The most common location is in a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It can be installed in the middle of the hose connections, as well as installed directly in the intake manifold.
  • Once the PCV valve is located, make sure all the PCV system hoses are properly connected and that they have no breaks or cracks.
  • Remove the air cleaner and inspect the air and crankcase filters. Crankcase blowby can clog these with oil. Clean or replace such filters.
  • Oil in the air cleaner assembly indicates that the PCV valve or hoses are plugged.
  • Make sure you check these and replace the valve and clean the hoses and air cleaner assembly.
  • When the PCV valve and hose are in satisfactory condition and there is oil in the air cleaner assembly, perform a cylinder compression test to check for worn cylinders and piston rings.

    The pcv valve is usually located on one of the valve covers look for the larger vacuum hose coming from the intake manifold and follow it you should find it that way. changing it is a matter of sometimes using a pair of pliers to remove a small clamp then rotate back and forth the pcv valve while holding the hose and pulling it away and off.

    The valve is located under the thermostat housing facing the front of the car. There is very little room to work with here. You'll have to pull the hose up from the valve then pull the valve out.

    Location of pcv valve on 03 ford focus
    Here's a picture to locate it..
    So, when looking at the engine from above, on the right of the exhaust.

    Procedure to replace it
    1) Lift and support the front end of your car, or drive up on ramps
    2) Get under the front of your car. The PCV Valve is located behind the exhaust manifold, a few inches below the valve cover.
    3) Push up on the PCV valve to pop it out of the tube, or pull. You can get it out of the rubber tube with some effort.
    4) Remove the rubber elbow from the top of the PCV valve. This can be re-used if it's not squishy. It can also be replaced cheaply.
    5) Put the elbow on the new PCV Valve
    6) Re-attach the elbow to the PCV tube
    7) Push the new PCV valve back down into the large rubber tube

    My 2003 MINI Cooper is having clicking noises when turning the wheel. any ideas?

    Could be the steering column. I had mine replaced under warranty for the same issue. This is a known problem for first generation MINI's. Talk to your dealer for a replacement.
