The MAF sensor is in the air intake line just after the air filter.  It will be the part that has some electric plug in it.  Let me know if you need anything else.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Where is the pcv valve 2006 ford five hundred

It is under the throttle body area and it is hard to get to unless you are doing the plugs and have it out of the way. My Ford dealer quoted $166 to change the plugs P&L. I did them myself. Look up your PVC valve on to see what it looks like.
1. Remove the 4 transaxle roll restrictor brace bolts.
o To install, clean the bolts using a wire brush, apply new threadlocker to the threads and tighten to 55 Nm (41 lb-ft) .
2. Remove the bolt and the transaxle roll restrictor brace.
o To install, clean the bolts using a wire brush, apply new threadlocker to the threads and tighten to 48 Nm (35 lb-ft) .
3. Disconnect the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve tube from the PCV valve.
4. If equipped, disconnect the PCV valve electrical connector.
5. CAUTION: A new PCV valve must be installed if removed from the cam cover. Damage will occur to the locking mechanism on the PCV valve. Rotate the PCV valve counterclockwise to remove from the valve cover.
6. To install, reverse the removal procedure

Where is the pvc val located on 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

The pcv valve will be on the valve cover. It will have a tube coming to it. You can pull it out to remove it. Shake the pcv valve, if it doesn't rattle, it needs to be replaced.

Specify were the pcv valve is located on 95 mustang v8?

Look on top of the block at back by firewall for PCV. Other things you may want to check/clean are idle air control valve on side of throttle body, as well as mass air flow sensor in intake air assembly. Clean IAC with throttle body spray cleaner and port it is removed from well, and try. Use tuner cleaner or electrical cleaner on MAF sensor . Sometimes just cleaning will cure it.

Where is the PVC Valve located on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix

It's under the MAP sensor in the upper plenum. You need to remove the MAP sensor by turning it ¼- turn while pushing down. Remove the sensor and the PCV should be under that. Reach in with needle nose pliers to grab it.
REMOVAL PROCEDURE: Remove the injector sight shield from the fuel rail and intake. Remove the MAP sensor. Use a 16 mm socket to press the access cover down and rotate 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Remove the access cover. Remove the PCV valve and the O-ring from the intake manifold.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE: Install the crankcase ventilation valve ; replace the O-ring if necessary. Install the access cover. Install the MAP sensor. Install the sight shield.

Where is the PVC valve located on a 2003 Nissan altima se 3.5

You may have to remove the cover from the top of the engine to access the PCV valve. One side of the PCV Valve screws into the Valve Cover, and the other side has a rubber hose connected to the air intake. It is located on the right side of the valve cover.

2003 ford taurus idle problems had trouble codes

A code P0174 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor. and your solutions are.
    • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner . Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
    • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
    • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

2002 saturn sl1 pcv valve

The PVC valve is located in the valve cover (top "cover" of the engine, near the oil filler cap) On DOHCs, it is immediatly to the right. On SOHCs, it a few inches to the left.The PVC valve is held to the valve cover with a rubber grommet type seat.

1. Remove the hose that connectes the throttle body unit to the PVC valve.
2. Using your hands, remove the PVC valve from the rubber seat. Wiggle it back and forth, then pull it straight out.
3. You can either clean this with carb cleaner, or simply replace it with a new one (<$5 at most auto stores)
4. Put the PVC valve back into the rubber seat and replace the hose

Location of the pvc valve and the maf sensor Can't find the PCV valve to change it.

The PCV valve is part of the front valve cover and in order to replace it you have to replace the valve cover.

The MAF sensor is in the air filter housing. The connector is on the top of the housing.
