Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Where is the pcv valve?

2.2 4cyl. 2wd. I thought I was pulling the pcv from the top of the valve cover gasket but it was a fitting that resembled it. Of course I mangled that part thinking that I was going to replace it anyway. If you could tell me what I mangled too that would be great . It is a silver fitting that connects to the intake right before the throttle body. Those haynes books stink. I think they have confused me as much as they have helped. Thanks for your time.

SO I WENT TO THE DEALER WITH THAT SAME QUESTION AND AFTER RUNNING THE VIN # IT TURNS OUT THAT IT DOESN'T HAVE A PCV VALVE, WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT THE VALVE COVER HAS SOME TYPE OF MESH AND AFTER IT GOES BAD YOURE SUPPOSED TO CHANGE THE COVER ITSELF TO AVOID GETTIN OIL INTO YOUR INTAKE. OTHER THAN THAT IT SHOULD STILL BE GOOD.WHAT I DID IS LOOK FOR A PCV VALVE THAT FITS INTO THE HOLE AND REPLACE THE HOSE SO I WOULN'T HAVE TO BUY THE COVER

I have oil leaking into were my spark plugs are what can it be


This is caused by a leaking valve cover gasket, you will need to replace it.
Instructions
    • 1Pop the hood on the engine compartment and make sure the engine is cool. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent possible shock. Remove the air outlet using a screwdriver. Loosen the PCV hose clamp at the valve cover with the screwdriver and pull the hose from it. Disconnect the quick connect fitting from the fuel line at the fuel rail.
    • 2Remove the fuel line clips from the fuel line bracket. Reposition the fuel feed line out of the way of the valve cover. Remove the bolt from the fuel line bracket using a wrench and take the bracket off. Mark the proper location of each of the wires on the ignition coils using the marker and masking tape and then pull them off.

    • Remove the wiring harness clips from the valve cover. Remove the valve cover bolts using a socket and ratchet. Pull the valve cover away from the cylinder head. Remove the valve cover gasket from the cylinder head. Use the scraper to remove any gasket material that remains. Clean the cylinder head mounting surface using the rags.
    • 4Place a new gasket on the cylinder head. Place the valve cover on the gasket and line it up properly with the cylinder head. Secure the valve cover bolts using the socket and ratchet. Attach the wiring harness clips to the valve cover. Attach the wires to the ignition coils according to the labels you made.
    • 5Place the fuel line bracket in place and tighten the bolt with the wrench. Move the fuel line back into place and attach the fuel line clips to the bracket. Connect the quick connect fitting of the fuel line to the fuel rail. Connect the hose to the PCV valve at the valve cover and tighten the clamp with the screwdriver.
    • 6Connect the air outlet and tighten the clamp with the screwdriver. Connect the battery cable. Start the engine and check the valve cover for leaking around the new gasket.
  • It is important that you disconnect the battery as instructed. Otherwise, you are not only at risk of electrical shock, but you may also short out and damage other components.

Can u please tell me where the pcv valve go


It`s very easy, follow the air filter / air inlet pipe (black,rubber about 4`` wide on the driver`s side) it goes to the throtlle body housing where your gas cable and cruise control is located. From this black inlet pipe you will see another black plastic tube that goes directly on top of the front valve-cover gasket (front of engine) Pull this tube which is angled and you will have your pcv valve plugged into this plastic tube. Purchase the pcv valve first so you can see the size and diameter of where this tube actually will fit.
good-luck, if you cannot locate the pcv valve then I suggest to wait for your next oil change where you can ask your repair shop for the location of the pcv, and or they can replace it. Usually there`s no charge for labour it`s very easy on this engine..

Cant find pcv valve on 2000 buick lasabre


The PCV valve is hidden on top of the intake manifold down in a little enclosure. There are two small bolts holding the PCV cover. Often there is a fairly large vacuum line coming into the enclosure. Remove the cover and pull the PCV valve that sits down into a gasket.

Where is pcv valve located


it is plugged into(or screwed into the top of the motor, sometimes at the top but at the back side of the valve cover rather than on the top or front side. if it's plugged into a rubber fitting, lubricate around the pcv and let it sit for a few hours . when you try to pull the pcv from the rubber fitting sometimes the rubber will be dry and crack/break and then you have to pay the dealer 1.8 million dollars for one or $5 at the junk yard......

Changing pvc valve


1995 Geo Truck Tracker 4WD 1.6L TBI SOHC 4cyl
The PCV Valve is located under hood, center, upper engine area, top of engine, mounted in passenger side of intake manifold.

The low gas mileage and the versatility that your 1995 through 1999 Geo Tracker offers are two benefits of owning it. The maintenance needs to be kept up on your Geo Tracker. One form of this maintenance is to replace the valve cover gasket once you have driven 100,000 miles or more.
  1. Allow your engine to cool. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air inlet hose and air intake case or air cleaner housing. Detach the PCV valve hose from the PCV valve. Separate and remove the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable from their clips.
  2. Loosen and remove the valve cover bolts. Lift the cover up and off. Using a flathead screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket out of the gasket seating area. Using automotive engine cleaner and a clean cloth rag, clean the gasket seating area.
  3. Place the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Put the cover back into place. Put the bolts in and then using a torque wrench tighten them. Do not over tighten the bolts or the gasket will not fit correctly. Reconnect the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable in the holding clips.
  4. Reconnect the rubber hose to the PCV valve. Install the air intake case, or air cleaner housing, and the air inlet hose. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Add oil to the car and start the engine. Allow the car to run 10 to 15 minutes. This will allow the oil to lubricate the engine while it moves to the top.
I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Have not had the pcv changed in a while and cannot locate it. 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix 3800 series 3, with super charger.


If I remember correctly this vehicle has a plastic plenum and the pcv valve is inside the plenum. Only time it is usually replaced is when the intake gasket needs replaced (and it will).
