Question about 2004 Honda CR-V
Could somone please tell me exactly where the PCV valve is on a 2004 Honda CRV? I've done an almost complete tune up on my vehicle ( minus the PCV valve).
PCV Valve Operation:
A vacuum-controlled metering device that regulates the flow of crankcase fumes in the positive crankcase ventilation system by allowing more flow at high speed than at low speed, and acts as a system shutoff in case of engine backfire to prevent an explosion in the crankcase.
Depending on your engine size, the PCV is a different style and slightly different location.
Usually they are mounted in a hole on your valve cover.... connected by a vacuum tube.
Some are mounted with threads into the engine block (usually by the oil filter)
On the '04 Crv - it is nearly inaccessible behind the AC compressor and beneath what looks like an old vacuum advance. Most PCV valves today do not need to be replaced, unless there is actual valve failure, which I have not seen happen. I would not be concerned about replacing it.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Poor advice on not replacing the PCV valve. Dirty throttle bodies, dirty oil re-introduced back into the crank case and less efficient valves are all serious concerns, particularly if the oil isn't changed regularly.
I wouldn't go over 60K without replacling it
