The PCV valve is located in the valve cover on the passenger side of the vehicle. The valve is closer to the firewall than it is to the front of the engine. It has a hose attached to it and threads into the valve cover.

the pcv valve is behind the alternator between the alternator and oil filter. when you remove the oil filter you can see the pcv in the intake manifold. best way to get to it is through the pass side fender under the rubber mud flap thats between the wheel and engine.

Location of pcv valve on 2008 ford taurus 3.5


On 3.5L engines, the PCV Valve is located on the rear valve cover (see pictures bellow). Please note: the PCV valve must be replaced if it's removed. Access to the valve is easier if you remove the upper intake manifold. However, this is not absolutely necessary and if you are already a little mechanically inclined you can do it the way you would replaced any other PCV valve.

    -A 19mm open wrench will make your life a lot easier if the PCV valve is a bit tight. It is in an awkward spot to apply pressure.

    -Disconnect the electrical connector from the valve. There is a small pin or locking device on the wire that you will have to slightly depress for the connector to release.

    -Disconnect the hose from the valve and turn the hose clockwise so that you have a bit of room to work with.

    -Turn the PCV valve counterclockwise and remove from the valve cover. Pay close attention to the position of the valve at the point when it is to be removed. The new PCV valve will go in at that same position. Why is this important? It is possible to install the PCV valve facing in the opposite direction. Once the PCV valve in and locked it in place, it damages the locking mechanism. Therefore, if you remove it you will have to throw it away and purchase a new one.

    -You just saved $130 - $150 to have the PCV replaced at the dealership...

Where is the pcv valve located


PCV LOCATED ON VALVE COVER CANT MISS IT..

Where is the pcv valve at the engine ford explorer sport 99


PCV Basics
PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation.
All car engines have a PCV valve and it is located on top of the motor's valve cover. There is a vacuum line attached to it. It pulls out of the valve cover and if you shake it, you should hear a marble knocking inside it. If you shake it and don't hear anything, it's bad. It costs less than 5 bucks to replace.


Location
* 4.0L is located in the valve cover near the brake booster
* 5.0L is located behind the intake manifold (engine rear)

NOTE-Most people that are asking actually want to know not only where is it but also how do you get at it to replace it.

Often answers say that you need to dismantle the intake manifold to get to it.
This is a major and unnecessary approach, for example, on the 2000 Explorer with a 5.0 V8

Below is an additional suggestion on how to access a PCV valve on an 2000 5.0 V8 Explorer

The PCV valve is on the rear of the intake manifold (the intake manifold is also on top of the crankcase so PCV valve has direct access to crankcase)

To replace valve and/or its bushing:
  • Disconnect one battery terminal, unbolt/unplug the PCM cable (Powertrain Control Module connector located on the firewall) and firewall ground connection, depress underneath tab and slide the main cable connector (located to the right of PCM connector) off its mount.
  • Move the cables to the right and now you can easily reach down behind the intake manifold to the PCV valve
  • Service valve and its bushing if needed, reverse actions to reassemble
Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this). Good luck.

Have not had the pcv changed in a while and cannot locate it. 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix 3800 series 3, with super charger.


If I remember correctly this vehicle has a plastic plenum and the pcv valve is inside the plenum. Only time it is usually replaced is when the intake gasket needs replaced (and it will).

Location of pcv valve on 03 ford focus


http://www.focushacks.com/images/pcv.jpg
Here's a picture to locate it..
So, when looking at the engine from above, on the right of the exhaust.

Procedure to replace it
1) Lift and support the front end of your car, or drive up on ramps
2) Get under the front of your car. The PCV Valve is located behind the exhaust manifold, a few inches below the valve cover.
3) Push up on the PCV valve to pop it out of the tube, or pull. You can get it out of the rubber tube with some effort.
4) Remove the rubber elbow from the top of the PCV valve. This can be re-used if it's not squishy. It can also be replaced cheaply.
5) Put the elbow on the new PCV Valve
6) Re-attach the elbow to the PCV tube
7) Push the new PCV valve back down into the large rubber tube
