  • 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.

    Im not sure u=if you ahe a 4cyl or v6 but on the 4 cyl. engines the PCV valve is located below the intake manifold towards the bottom of the engine in what appears to be a vacuum chamber. I have also heard it be called an oil seperator. Quite a stupid place for such a commonly replaced part.

    SOURCE: 2003 FORD EXPEDITION PCV VALVE LOCATION

    on my 2003 eddie bauer edition, the valve is on the passenger side valve cover about mid way. Mine had what looked to be three hoses attatched to it, but with further inspection two of the hoses turned out to be connected and just looped around the valve with a keeper clamp.

    Location fo pcv valve on 2001 ford ranger 4 cyclinder 2.3


    I think it is in the valve cover. see illustrations from shop manual.



    Positive Crankcase Ventilation System Overview The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) System (Figure 132)cycles crankcase gases back through the engine where they are burned. The PCV valve regulates the amount of ventilating air and blow-by gas to the intake manifold and prevents backfire from traveling into the crankcase. The PCV valve should be mounted in a vertical position. On some applications, the PCV system is connected to the evaporative emission system (refer to the VECI decal). located on the underside of the hood or on the radiator cooling fan shroud.

    2003 Ford Ranger 2.3 Diagram


     rough-idling engine can signal a number of positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve problems, such as a clogged valve or a plugged hose. But before beginning the functional checks, double check the PCV valve part number to make certain the correct valve is installed. If the correct valve is being used, continue by disconnecting the PCV valve from the valve cover, intake manifold, or hose. Start the engine and let it run at idle. If the PCV valve is not clogged, a hissing is heard as air passes through the valve. Place a finger over the end of the valve to check for vacuum.

    With the engine at idle, vacuum should be felt at the PCV valve.
