SOURCE: PCV valve location

if i know what you are asking, look at where you put your oil in. on the valve cover to the top right should be a plug with a tubeing runs to your air clear tube where the air mass sensor and carb is located. i think that is what you are looking for.

SOURCE: pcv valve replacement

The PCV valve is not removable from the valve rocker arm cover. The PCV valve and rocker arm cover must be replaced as an assembly.

Here's a picture to locate it..
So, when looking at the engine from above, on the right of the exhaust.

Procedure to replace it
1) Lift and support the front end of your car, or drive up on ramps
2) Get under the front of your car. The PCV Valve is located behind the exhaust manifold, a few inches below the valve cover.
3) Push up on the PCV valve to pop it out of the tube, or pull. You can get it out of the rubber tube with some effort.
4) Remove the rubber elbow from the top of the PCV valve. This can be re-used if it's not squishy. It can also be replaced cheaply.
5) Put the elbow on the new PCV Valve
6) Re-attach the elbow to the PCV tube
7) Push the new PCV valve back down into the large rubber tube

The valve is located under the thermostat housing facing the front of the car. There is very little room to work with here. You'll have to pull the hose up from the valve then pull the valve out.

I have oil blowing out of the filler tube when I remove the cap on my 2008 Chevy Colorado what could be the problem


It's most likely due to a clogged PCV valve or clogged/kinked PCV hose. I'll include a video showing PCV system operation.
I've seen this symptom many times on various engines, and the PCV valve was usually clogged/defective. A clogged PCV valve results in crankcase pressure build-up and fumes/oil exiting places on the engine that it shouldn't. A severely clogged PCV often makes oil leak/exit out of the dipstick, even with dipstick in place.
The good news is... if the PCV valve is clogged/defective, the "cure" is a very cheap fix. Usually less than $5.
PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation, btw.

But note that on some engines (those where the oil filler opening is directly above the rocker arms/valvetrain) it is normal to have a small amount of oil "spray" come out, as the rocker arms are dispersing oil thru their oil passage hole on top.

(Whenever posting vehicle questions, always please add the engine size/type. It helps in more accurate diagnosis.)
Also, please rate via the helpful button if you feel my answer helped you out. Also post back and let me know if this cured it.

Location of pcv valve on 2008 ford taurus 3.5


On 3.5L engines, the PCV Valve is located on the rear valve cover (see pictures bellow). Please note: the PCV valve must be replaced if it's removed. Access to the valve is easier if you remove the upper intake manifold. However, this is not absolutely necessary and if you are already a little mechanically inclined you can do it the way you would replaced any other PCV valve.

    -A 19mm open wrench will make your life a lot easier if the PCV valve is a bit tight. It is in an awkward spot to apply pressure.

    -Disconnect the electrical connector from the valve. There is a small pin or locking device on the wire that you will have to slightly depress for the connector to release.

    -Disconnect the hose from the valve and turn the hose clockwise so that you have a bit of room to work with.

    -Turn the PCV valve counterclockwise and remove from the valve cover. Pay close attention to the position of the valve at the point when it is to be removed. The new PCV valve will go in at that same position. Why is this important? It is possible to install the PCV valve facing in the opposite direction. Once the PCV valve in and locked it in place, it damages the locking mechanism. Therefore, if you remove it you will have to throw it away and purchase a new one.

    -You just saved $130 - $150 to have the PCV replaced at the dealership...

Chevy 2002 Malibu ERG valve


Symptoms of a bad EGR valve are usually stumbling idle or the engine stalling when the car is warm (normal operating temperature). Find the EGR valve and locate the vacuum line attached to it. Start the engine cold and wait for it to warm up. When the engine starts to stumble, pull off the vacuum line. If the EGR is bad, the engine idle will stabilize and no longer stumble.

PCV Valve location


It should sit in your valve cover. On the passenger side (if I remember correctly). It should be right on your valve cover with a line that attaches to the top of it.

Where is the pcv valve on the 2005 chevy trail blazer


It is located on top of the valve cover. Buy the new one and you will see what it looks like, then you will pull the hose off of it and put the new one on, 5-minutes at top to do this job.
