SOURCE: where is the pcv valve located on a 2003 ford ranger

  • The PCV valve can be located in several places. The most common location is in a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It can be installed in the middle of the hose connections, as well as installed directly in the intake manifold.
  • Once the PCV valve is located, make sure all the PCV system hoses are properly connected and that they have no breaks or cracks.
  • Remove the air cleaner and inspect the air and crankcase filters. Crankcase blowby can clog these with oil. Clean or replace such filters.
  • Oil in the air cleaner assembly indicates that the PCV valve or hoses are plugged.
  • Make sure you check these and replace the valve and clean the hoses and air cleaner assembly.
  • When the PCV valve and hose are in satisfactory condition and there is oil in the air cleaner assembly, perform a cylinder compression test to check for worn cylinders and piston rings.

    SOURCE: torque specs for valve cover

    not sure there is such a thing. I've never seen anybody use a torque wrench on valve cover bolts. Just use a nut driver (screwdriver type) or a 1/4 inch drive ratchet, and tighten as much as you can. They don't need to be very tight.

    SOURCE: valve cover gasket and grammets

    Go buy a valve cover gasket and put it on. Mark and pull plug wires, remove valve cover bolts. Remove old gasket {the gasket has the grommets on it} and replace. No need for anything else.

    SOURCE: how to remove the valve cover to replace gasket

    What kind of engine? If it's a 3.0L Vulcan, you have to take off the upper and lower intake manifolds and you'll be able to take the valve covers off. There's a bunch to take off before you get to that point. The EGR Valve, Throttle body assembly, ignition coil pack, etc. Make sure you relieve the fuel system pressure (it might be behind the right side well cover of your trunk- disconnect that connection), and take off the negative battery terminal before begining work.

    SOURCE: How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a

    The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
    2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
    3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
    4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
    5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

    To install:
    1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
    2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
    3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

    1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.

    How to replace a valve cover gasket on my 1987 Ford Ranger with a 2.0 L engine


    Relatively simple gig. Remove wires from plugs making sure to note which leads to which plug so that firing order is maintained on re-installation, remove vacuum hose from pvc valve, remove six valve cover retaining bolts and remove valve cover. Clean that up making sure there is no residue on gasket mating surface on wither the valve cover itself or the top side of the header. place new gasket in place and replace valve cover torquing bolts to appx. 72-108 inlb. Replace pvc vacuum line followed by plug wires and you\'re set. This is a stripped down version as there will be many hoses and lines in the way but you should just be able to wiggle past these. If you do end up taking anything else out just make sure you remember where and how it connect and you\'ll do fine. Nothing this high up is that terribly sensitive. Good Luck!

    How do i remove and replace the valve cover gasket on a 2002 ford ranger


    Hi diane hensle. I hope I can help with your problem. First, you want to remove the PCV valve hose and any other hoses that may be running to your valve cover. Mark their positions with masking tape so you can remember where they all go. Then, remove the 3 or 4 bolts in the top of the valve cover holding it in position. When these are removed, it may take a smart whack on the side of the valve cover to dislodge it. Just don't hit it TOO hard, as these are aluminum. Once the valve cover is off, remove the gasket and clean off both mating surfaces. Be careful to drop as little debris as possible into the head as this will soil your oil. Replace it with the new gasket, replace the valve cover, and tighten the bolts going from center outward. They don't have to be particularly tight, say snug plus 2 turns. If they are too tight, the valve cover will pinch the gasket and cause oil leaks and air intrusion. Then replace the PCV hose and any others you may have disconneced. Hope this helped.
