Can pcv valve cause throddle like symptom on 1994 nissan altima

Pcv system is kind of nose of the engine.
If you clag your nose and try to run for couple miles you gonna have breating problems need more air . so positif crankcase ventilation is controls by spring calibrated valve which we call pcv is collects blow by gases(this gases still rich for oil and unburned fuel molekuls) when engine needs it pcv opens and retun this gases into intake manifold to help emisions and reburn this rich vapors . however this return vapors also bring extra oil rich sticky debris to throttle which can cause late responds and lost of power.
you should replace pcv valve fallow all small vacuum lines and inspect hoses for any crack or leak replace if necesary with same size emission prof hoses and clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaners with manufacty service information.

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.

I cant locate the pcv vale on my 1998 nissan altima.

The location of the PCV valve on your vehicle is probably in the most inconvenient spot Nissan could think of. :( You'll find it under the idle control valve, by the throttle body. You'll see the vacuum hose going to it from the intake system. The only way that I could ever get it out is to remove the idle control valve first. Sometimes, there are other things in the way as well that you may need to remove. I wish I had a simpler, easier way to get at this little guy, but unfortunately this is what needs to be done.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any futher assistance! :)

Changing PCV valve

the pcv valve goes in the breather separator the power stearing pully is directy under it there are two 10 mm bolts on top and one under the breather separator, pull the bolts and the clamp on hose. remember the separator is siliconed onto the intake so separate with knife and pull on it. it will be hard but will come. dont forget to clean serface before re siliconing it.
