Question about 2001 Volvo S60

Open Question

2001 S60 - PCV valve/bypass valve

Where is it located, and is it difficult to replace. I've traced a breather house from on top of the engine, next to the oil fill cap, down trough the intale to a black plastic box towards bottom of engine. Is it located in the box? If so, is there an easy way to replace it, without pulling the whole intake as it appears to be the only way to get to the box?

You are going to have to remove the intake filter, figure out which one of 13 oil traps you have, and replace it with a new one, as well as the associated hoses for the PCV system. Make sure you have an intake gasket before you go back together.

It's not that bad at all. After you remove the three bolts for the power steering pump and the two bolts for the drive belt tensioner it is sitting right in front of you.

SOURCE: 1988 Volvo 740 Smoke from Oil Cap and Dipstick hole when removed

The smoke coming from the valve cover and dipstick is called blowby. It is combustion gases the have passes by the piston rings . A small amount of blowby is normal on all engines. The PCV system(Positve Crankcase Ventilation)pulls the gases out and directs them back into the egine to be burnt again. I would first check the PCV system to make sure it is working proper. Also a compression test of the engine will tell you which cylinder is not sealing proper. If the compression test is ok, a leak down check of the cylinders will determine if the engine is wore out.

Location of pcv valve 95 nissan KA 24 engine hardbody


Follow the breather hose(s) to where they meet the engine and that is where the pcv valve is usually to be found if your engine has one; valve cover, crankcase or inlet manifold are the likely locations.

Not all engines use a pcv valve. Many engines just have a tiny hole into the inlet manifold which typically soon blocks and needs cleaning.

Ford was one of the manufacturers who in the early days of a pcv system being required, used an oil filler cap to attach the breather system to and the tiny hole was inside the cap along with the flame trap and oil mist filter.
That like many of the plastic pcv valves was intended to be a throw-away item.

I hope I have helped you a little.

Donde queda el pcv valvula en el motor


The PCV valve on Altimas looks different than what has been common for years on most engines. The PCV valve is located at the drive belt side of the engine under the intake manifold and attached to the breather/separator. Access from above is very difficult; access the valve from underneath the vehicle. There is a short hose that connects to the breather/separator.

Remove the breather/separator and the hose. Then you can unscrew the PCV valve from the breather/separator for easy inspection and cleaning of each piece. Also inspect both passages where the separator and hose connect. Here is a picture of the valve after it is removed. The breather/separator is a small aluminum housing that will fit in your hand.

Obviously the PCV system is more difficult to service on Altima engines than the more familiar design on so many other engines. A restriction in the PCV system will increase crankcase pressure. This pressure inside your engine will push oil out where ever it can find a place to leak, including into the distributor.

Hope helps.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo, 1.8L?


All these answers are WRONG!!! The PCV valve isn't located anywhere near the valve cover but underneath the Intake manifold behind the secondary air pump. The PCV hose starts just to the right of the base of the Oil dipstick tube and leads to the right (driver side) to a rubber T. The PCV valve is actually inside this T. You have to unscrew the clamps and carefully pull out the old Plastic PCV insert/valve and replace it with a new one. Most of the time you will also have to replace the hoses since they will be full of sludge/crud and may have gotten brittle from the heat of the 1.8 engine. It is very difficult to access the PCV valve on the 1.8 engine and unless you have doublejointed hands you may need to remove the intake manifold to get to it. But some have done it without removing the intake manifold. Here is a link to some pictures of the location of the PCV valve which in case is an insert residing in that rubber T. http://newbeetle.org/forums/1-8-liter-turbo/45626-pcv-valve-location-2000-beetle-1-8t.html

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..

How difficult is it to change the PCV valve. 2004


PCV is an acronym for positive crankcase ventilation.
The PCV Valve is a very common replacement item on many engines today. It's called the PCV valve for short but it stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. When your engine spins it many times collects pressure in the crankcase area, and it has to escape to relieve pressure on the motors bearings and seals. The PCV valve and PCV system is typically located near the intake manifold, and many times comes right off of the valve cover. It is very simple to replace the PCV valve, and you can do so by simply unscrewing it, and screwing in the new valve. We recommend using a little bit of teflon tape or paste to make sure you do not get any oil leaks.

Whirring noise


HELLO, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I WENT TO THE DEALER AND WHEN THE CAR WAS MAKING THAT WHIRLING SOUND, HE UNSCREWED THE OIL CAP AT THAT MOMENT AND THE NOISE WAS GONE. IT WAS THE PCV VALVE AND THE HOUSING(DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS) THAT NEEDED REPLACING. SO TRY UNSCREWING THE OIL CAP WHEN THE NOISE IS PRESENT. IF IT GOES AWAY THEN YOU HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THE PCV VALVE NEEDS REPLACEMENT. IF YOU CAN GET A GOOD, TRUSTING MECHANIC THAT CAN DO THIS FOR LESS THAN 350.00, YOUR GOOD. THE DEALER CHARGED ME 650.00 FOR THIS. GOOD LUCK.

Where is located the oil breather on 1991 nissan 300zx


cornejo1971: There is no crank case oil breather per say. There are two PCV valves on the engine. There is one located on the intake plenum on each side. Typically there are hoses which come off the tops of the valve covers that go to the PCV valves.
