The PCV valve is not removable from the valve rocker arm cover. The PCV valve and rocker arm cover must be replaced as an assembly.

I am replacing the PCV valve on a 2005 Impala 3.4L V6 and there seems to be a retainer holding the pcv in place and it look like its either bolted from inside the valve cover or tack welded in place how do...

I have the same problem on my '05, bracket holding down pcv valve, no way to get it off. There is alot of confusion online about this. Most "expert" mechanics have never heard of it. They just say "pull it out" or "I've never heard of this". Not gonna happen. Mine is leaking oil, so it needs to come out, possibly replace an o-ring. I an going to try and clip/cut the bracket and bend it so the valve can slide past. Insert new valve, bend back, maybe add a little jb weld at the joint. What I've read online is that dealers say the whole valve cover needs to come off to access the underside of the bracket.

What all do i need to change when doing a tune up for a chevy 2005 equniox

Just basically spark plugs and an air filter. The plugs don't need replacement until 100,000 miles. The fuel filter is located inside the fuel pump assembly in the gas tank and is not serviceable. It doesn't require a PCV valve and there are no adjustments available for the throttle body, idle or timing.

How do you replace the pvc valve in a 2005 chevy equinox?

On your Equinox you will need to remove the engine plastic cover that says Chevrolet 3.4L. You do this by disconnecting the electrical wire from the oil pump located on you left side and unscrew the entire oil fill spout. Then just remove the cover. On the bottom right on the valve cover you will see a metal bracket with a small hose coming out and going up to the intake manifold. Remove the hose and you will find the PCV Valve.

The pcv valve is usually located on one of the valve covers look for the larger vacuum hose coming from the intake manifold and follow it you should find it that way. changing it is a matter of sometimes using a pair of pliers to remove a small clamp then rotate back and forth the pcv valve while holding the hose and pulling it away and off.

How do I remove the pcv valve from a 3.8 liter engine in a 2005 dodge grand caravan? I cannot pull it out.

1. BUY THE NEW PCV VALVE FROM THE DEALER. part #4648973AC (I paid $9.95 in the Detroit area). 2. PCV valve is located on top of 'rear' valve cover. There is a black rubber pipe connecting the PCV to the upper intake manifold. The rubber pipe is like an inverted 'U' shape. 3. To remove the rubber pipe, you will need to squeeze the band clamps. Remove the upper end first. You will then be able to rotate the lower end clockwise, if necessary, to get enough clearance to use pliers to squeeze the band clamp. Remove the pipe. 4. You should be able to see the small chrome pipe on the end of the PCV valve. However, the PCV valve is completely surrounded by a plastic collar/shroud, part of the plastic valve cover. So, the only part of the PCV that is accessible is the small chrome pipe. 5. THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO BY THE NEW PART FIRST. I needed to clamp onto the end of the PCV pipe with VISE-GRIPS. This will crush the end of the pipe. You will hold the vise grips in a horizontal fashion, towards your right, in your right hand. 6. Rocking the pipe, while carefully levering the vise grips on top of the plastic collar, you will walk the PCV valve up, and out. BE PATIENT. You do not want to crack the valve cover! 7. The rubber grommet should come out with the PCV metal valve. If not, you will need to pull it out (needle nose pliers?). 8. Install the new PCV valve. I used a film of white lithium spray to help the insertion. Note, there is a groove molded into the rubber grommet that must snap into place. I used a 5/8" deepwell socket as a 'pusher', to ease the PCV valve into place (just push, do not hammer). You should be able to feel it positively snap into place inside the plastic collar, otherwise it is not properly installed and will not seal. If properly installed, you will not be able to pull it out by hand. 9. Install the PCV rubber pipe. Slide the clamps towards the middle of the pipe, fit the pipe over PCVvalve. Be sure it is seated all the way to the bottom of the plastic collar. Squeeze the clamp and work down to the bottom of the pipe, then release. Repeat for the upper end of the pipe and spring clamp. 10. Have a cold one. You earned it.

Where is the pcv valve on the 2005 chevy trail blazer

It is located on top of the valve cover. Buy the new one and you will see what it looks like, then you will pull the hose off of it and put the new one on, 5-minutes at top to do this job.

Dear hispeed3,

If you haven't bought the part yet and are planning on replacing it ...i'd go to the auto parts store and ask them for the part location. They are usually glad to do this. I know Advanced Auto Parts does this for me.

First turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. Then use some pliers to carefully remove the plastic retaining clips that hold the splash guard in place in the right front wheel-well. You should now be able to see the oil filter (incidentally this is how you access the oil filter). Remove the oil filter. You should now be able to see the PCV valve and its hose which connects to the intake manifold. Use pliers and loosen/slide the retaining clip up the hose a couple of inches (this will alow the PCV valve to rotate as you unscrew it). Use a "stubby" open wrench to unscrew the PCV valve. With the PCV valve removed from the crankcase it is now easier to remove it from the hose. Reverse the process with a new PVC valve and you are finished. Appoximate time 30- 45 minutes.

Where is pcv valve on 96 nissan pickup

The PCV valve on the KA24E 4-cylinder is located in front of the oil filter and above the alternator. It points to the rear of the engine.

You will need only two tools; a stubby 19mm open end wrench and a pair of pliers to remove the hose clamp. I did it without removing anything else. Just reach around to the right of the oil filter. It took about 15 minutes. Here is a pic:
