2001 jeep wrangler crankcase senser how to change


no engine options stated so all answers will be wild guesses.

crankcase. there is no sensor on any crankcase
unless its oil level? or oil pressure, or???
the PCV is a crankcase device. it is easy to remove.

why not tell the story of why you want to find a part .
eg: my buddy said I need to change the PCV at tune up.
or my oil light comes on , at hot idle.
or my crank case oil level light is failing. (only on some engines)
my oil pressure gauge reads wrong.
i can not guess these.

Excessive pressure in the crankcase of a mazda 2005 6


Have you checked the hose from the valve cover to the air cleaner ?
The PCV valve pulls air from the crankcase into the intake, but the crankcase has to get fresh air from the air cleaner too.
If the crankcase is getting extra pressure from the cylinders you should have a check engine light and trouble codes.

WILL THE PCV VALVE CAUSE A CAR NOT TO START? IF ITS GOES WITH OUT GETTING IT FIX WHAT PROMBLEMS WILL IT CAUSE?


The blowby vapors that end up in an engine's crankcase contain moisture as well as combustion byproducts and unburned fuel vapors. The crankcase is sealed to prevent the escape of these gases into the atmosphere, but the vapors must be removed to prevent oil contamination that leads to sludge formation. The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system siphons these vapors from the crankcase and routes them into the intake manifold so they can be reburned in the engine.

The main component in the PCV system is the PCV valve, which is usually located in the valve cover. A hose connects the PCV valve to the intake manifold. A second hose between the air cleaner and crankcase or other valve cover (V6 or V8 applications) provides fresh air to help flush the vapors out of the crankcase. Some engines have a separate air filter for the PCV breather hose located inside the air cleaner.
Probably not read above for details.

Blowing oil into the airfilter


There are just a few things that cause this condition, The first to check is the engine oil level, overfilled crankcases cause this oil to be forced into the air cleaner through the crankcase air vent hose, the next reason PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) crankcase ventilation system is defective or plugged, check the PCV valve and the large vacuum hose to it, make sure the valve sucks tight on your finger when you put your finger on the end (valve pulled from engine of course) with the engine running, watch the vacuum hose to make sure it doesn't collapse and you are losing vacuum, ok all that checks ok? then the only thing left is excessive engine crankcase pressure, this is caused by worn piston rings or a scoured cylinder wall or a damaged piston skirt.

When i press accelerator engine is cutting ....


The van may just need a good tune up.

  • Replace the fuel filter
  • Replace the air filter
  • Replace the PVC valve
  • Replace Engine oil and filter
  • Replace the Spark plugs
  • Clean out the Throttle body with throttle body cleaner
  • Clean out the MAF sensor
This should help you get your van running 100% soon. If your on a tight budget, start with Cleaning the throttle body with spraying throttle body cleaner into the throttle body and cleaning up the MAF sensor with MAF sensor cleaner, just follow the instruction on the can. Then replace the PVC valve and add fuel injector cleaner in to the gas tank. This should help your engine running better and then you can do the rest of the work to complete the tune up. Good luck and keep me posted. If you go to Auto Zone, you can get all the things you need and they can scan your van for any DTC codes that may also indicate what issues your engine has.

Oil leaking everywhere air cleaner full of oil seems to be blowing up thru carbie still runs but oil loss cant be good.......Kevin


its called blow by.you have compression leaking past the rings,which is pressurizing the oil and the pcv system which burns crankcase fumes,is now putting oil into the carb.put a filter that is not too restrictive in front so the air,not oil goes in the carb.eventually the oil will gum up the system.in the 60s the engines had braether caps and did not reburn the crankcase fumes.

2001 Grand Prix GT 3800 series engine


The best solution is to do a complete tune up with new spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve and oil change.. If this still happen I would get some fuel injector cleaner, or use marvel mystery oil in both your oil(crankcase) and gas tank. You can get mystery oil at walmart..its in a red bottle with black label.
