How to replace AUDI (VW) PCV valve


PCV is an acronym for positive crankcase ventilation.
The PCV Valve is a very common replacement item on many engines today. It's called the PCV valve for short but it stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. When your engine spins it many times collects pressure in the crankcase area, and it has to escape to relieve pressure on the motors bearings and seals. The PCV valve and PCV system is typically located near the intake manifold, and many times comes right off of the valve cover. It is very simple to replace the PCV valve, and you can do so by simply unscrewing it, and screwing in the new valve. We recommend using a little bit of teflon tape or paste to make sure you do not get any oil leaks.
Example (see picture below): 2,4 ltr. Audi V6 engine (BDV, AMM)

Where is the PCV valve located and can I change it out myself? Is that the most common reason for the check engine light remaining on? Frank


Hello! The Check Engine Light (CEL) comes on when the computer stores a fault...There are a very large number of reasons why the light is on...Take your vehicle to an auto parts store and they will run a scan of the On Board Diagnostics to identify the fault code...Codes begin with a letter followed by a 4 digit number...(P0401 as an example)...When you have the code send a comment and I'll solve the problem..The PCV valve on the 4.6L is located in the drivers side valve cover towards the back.......................Guru...saailer

Chuggs when starting, sometimes the check enging


Ok, you might want to check your PCV valve, and the tube that runs along with it, because if it has a crack in it, or if the pcv valve is clogged up, alot of times the car will have a chugg when starting....And the Idle will be rough....Um sorry you lost all that money, but sometimes problems are small, but it may seem big..If the scanner is not picking up any codes, its either because your computer is not sending them out,,,( could be a blown ECM fuse) so check them all, Or its a mechanical problem, and not an electrical problem...But double check all your fuses, and that pcv valve, and the tube...Goodluck

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

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.

    Engine stalls after cold start-up & release from high speed idle


    I had a similar problem.  I found the filter cartridge below the pcv valve had carboned up, and after the crank case pressurized, oil was forced out the pcv supply line to the throttle body.  The idle air control valve solenoid got oil in it and caused my problem, but only when it was cold.  The pcv cartridge is accessed by removing the pcv valve and the rubber fitting that the pcv valve mounts in.  It can then be fished out with a pick set, and it is a pain because you can't see it, but you can get you hand back there.  I hope this helps you.
