It's not a PCV valve like back in the day . It's a fix orifice in the valve cover . Where the breather hose hooks to the valve cover . You would need to take the valve cover off an clean the orifice with carb clean or brake clean .

hello, usually when gas sets in carb for a long time it turns into a varnish, you will have to take carb apart and clean all jets out, even the fuel pump may be clogged up, you will probably have to rebuild carb, unless you have access to air line to blow any and all jets, pretty much all passage ways, power jets, in other words you have a carb problem, you may need a new one, unless you have a strong solvent, that will break away any varnish or gum up.

Is it very complicated to remove the valve cover to replace the grommets & the silicone & if not what is the recommended steps to take. thanks for any help my car is a 1994 Saturn SC1 SOHC

I replaced a valve cover gasket last night. The simple way of completing this taks is to un bolt the valve cover using the star tool. If I remember their is a total of ten bolts around the v-cover and in the center. Remove all bolts and clean them with carb or brake cleaner to disolve all the grease and dirt. Be careful to keep all washers that are below bolt head clean them to. You then would want to disconnect any lines or hoses connected (be mindful of where to re-connect them). Then very gently grab both sides of cover and pull toward front of engine until seal releases. Take cover out remove and replace all rubber grommets. Take a flat head screw driver and run along the seal making sure that the screw driver is under the seal run along crevice all the way around and in the center of valce cover ( where the circles are). You want the seal to be clear of all debris( and old seal). Use a clean towel to clean all areas where the seal once was with brake or carb spray. Clean the top of engine where seal rested and the circle area's make sure to use the silicone and cut the tip to desired beading ( you want the bead to be thick enough to fill the crevices where your old seal was maybe even more) After all area's have been filled wait 5 minutes for silicone to skin( a process where silicone is just begining to become tacky). Replace valve cover and make sure everything lines up install all bolts with washers into place and tighten reconnect all lines/ hoses and wait up to and hour and a half to drive. Although its safe to drive after this time it will take 24 hours to fully cure. Please forgive me for my grammer but I hope this information helps you.

No start


Must be a glitch in the system, I was never notified as it is supposed to.

Based on your last post, clean the new plugs and dry them out. It may even help to heat them using an open flame (away from the fuel). Thereafter wipe clean the sooth/burnt marks. Make sure all the plugs are firing. Since it is a carb/central injector, once fuel comes out of the carb, rev the engine while choking/releasing the cover over the mouth of the carb. The idea is for the engine to **** into the manifold any debris that may have lodged inside the carb jets seemingly cleaning the insides of the carb.
