I need to get a new pcv elbow connector for 95 chevy beretta v6
I need to get a new elbow connector for the pcv valve.. the rubber L-shaped one that connects directly onto the pcv valve, has only 2 sides/connections.. for a 1995 chevy beretta 6-cyl.. can't find any at the local junk yards or anywhere..
was told you can sometimes get the pcv valve with the elbow already attached, but haven't seen it anywhere..
my funds are tight, so i can't afford to get a whole new $35 line to just replace this $1 part..

There is a large elbow shaped tube at the back of the intake plenum where the PCV valve hose connects. This tube gets a hole sucked in it due to oil fumes that come through the PCV valve and softens the rubber. To find the tube,simply follow the PCV valve tube from the valve cover on the passenger side of engine to the back of the intake.
If the piece of hose you have left will reach the pvc valve or extend the hose you can just put it to the valve and if that is not possible then take the "T" and hook to the pvc and put a rubber plug in the open end of the "T".
Look for a elbow shaped tube on the top of the valve cover.
It looks like only a connector but inside of the elbow is the valve.
The elbow shaped PVC valve tends to clog faster than ones that are designed to be straight.
I'm not sure exactly where it is but they are always on one of the valve covers. it is shaped like an "L" and will have one vacuum hose connected to it and it inserts into a rubber grommet on the valve cover.
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
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.
it is down under the intake manifold. the intake manifold must be removed to get to it. this vehicle is known for developing a vacum leak in the elbow hose that connects to pcv valve, so ive done a few.
The vast majotity of Ford vehicles with P0171 and P0174 codes are suffering with a vacuum leak. The biggest culprits are the hoses going to the PCV valve. The rubber deteriorates due to heat and oil fumes. Check the hoses and rubber elbows between the PCV valve and the intake manifold. Pay very close attention to the rubber elbows. They crack on the onside and can be hard to spot.
