Question about Cars & Trucks
Have you had the transmission checked out? It sounds like it may be a problem with the torque converter.

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator. Could also be that the timing jumped. But I'm leaning towards the pressure regulator. Hope that I could help. Best wishes.

It could be a lot of things, check the gas cap, vacuum leak, IAC, may need a tune-up ( check plugs, wires, air filter), seizing pulley, timing issue (check CKP sensor and CMP sensor), sticking valves, misfire, Fuel line pressure, or an issue with CAT or muffler.Good luck.

well i'm sorry that you got the miss information here on fixya. because all internal combustion engines need a pcv valve to operate properly.
now the information you got first is correct and pcv valve can set false codes like o2's and lean bank conditions also can cause you vechile to run or idle rough.
no there are a few different styles pcv valves and some times don't look like your convetional pcv. some are heated in different ways either by coolant ( witch look like a conventioanl pcv but with a coolant tube around them) then electricaly heated and they don't look like them at all. but one thing that has to stay the same is the pcv valve has to ventilate the crank case and will be found somewhere on or near the valve cover because it is the easiest and most accessible point of the engines crank case area. so i would look for that and usally on that vechile it is on the passanger side valve cover in the middle.
with that said and seeing you did all those repairs i would go right for that as my next step. but there is other thing that cold cause this issue like leaky injectors and is almost more likely becuase of the o2 sensor code and backfire. do you have the code # so i can look it up and best assist you?
see vechiles are hard to fix over the computer as i am trying so if you have any more question/info about this issue please ask and i will be glad to help.

Testimonial: "Cool thanks, i'll check the pcv valve/ line going into the back of the intake, if that doesn't work i'll go for the codes again....thanks again...."
sounds like a vacuum intake leak..check a those little tubes for cracks and security. also check your transmission levels, this will sometimes cause a surging problem while driving..if all this checks good then it might be dirty or clogged injectors..purchase a can of Sea Foam from Autozone $10 pour in 1/2 can to half tank of gas and drive around for thirty minutes..highway driving preferred, and see if that will clean up the fuel system.Can i get some feedback, thanks
