It sounds like the PCV valve to Intake manifold hose. You can get a replacement at any Autoparts store, just take the old one to check the diameter.

Suzuki grand vitara 2001 V6 2.5 litre. how hard to change valve cover gaskets & front engine oil seal, do I have to take out radiator etc

why not just do it one at a time., why make it hard.?
the front cover off is big job.
my guess is you have oil leaks, that it?
the steps are in the FSM book,
you can read them at or at the official suz page.
posted 100 times.

$4 to look.......

or see all parts here for free.
it should be obvious what needs doing, if you look at what is in the way.

non are easy on the v6
you can see the intake is in the way.
and lots more on front cover....
id do the VC first. see if the leaks stops.
or better.
why not use the UV dye, check and find true place of leak first.
then do all that labor to fix. it.

the front cover.
well you can see all thing must come off front of engine, to get
the cover clear of the crank shaft. its clear that !
and how to do that depends on what stops you doing that.
the RAD sure. id have it out already. (not A/C condensor)

posted many times before. but one more time...
in FSM book.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove throttle body and intake manifold.
  3. Remove ignition coil covers.
  4. Remove camshaft covers.
  5. Clean sealing surfaces on cylinder heads and covers.
  6. Remove oil, old sealant, and dust from sealing surfaces. After cleaning, apply sealant A to cylinder heads sealing surface area as shown in figure.

so you read the book and get to line 2 and see links to those pages.
and ask who do to that, (TB should be obvious)
and that page on intake states

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Strut tower bar
    • Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor connector
    • Surge tank cover
    • Air intake assembly
    • Accelerator cable
    • Transmission cable, if equipped
    • Throttle body coolant hoses
    • Fuel injector connectors
    • Throttle Position (TP) sensor connector
    • Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor connector
    • Idle Air Control (IAC) valve connector
    • Intake manifold ground cables
    • Brake booster vacuum hose
    • Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) canister purge valve connector and hoses
    • Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve connector
    • Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve and hose
    • Heater hoses
    • EGR pipe
    • Fuel lines
    • Throttle body and intake collector
    • Intake manifold
  5. .... stop,....... im sure it's info overload time.. RTM?

im sure you dont like this answer , and will drive with leaks.
like me....

why not read the manual first then ask questions. not clear.

Can i view idle speed valve on polo petrol 2001 i get a flat spot when pull away and there is a broken tube coming from the idle valve i want to know where it goes

Are you talking about the throttle body butterfly valve? you can view that if you remove your air cleaner housing and pipe. There is a tube coming off the top of the outside of some air intakes...for egr. look for a hose coming from your valve cover that isnt attached to anything. or piece that broke off. this would cause an intake leak maybe. inside your intake there is a sort of tube,but if it broke you wouldnt see it, and it would go into your engine. Hope I helped a little anyways...try rephrasing the question.

How do i change sparkplugs for 2002 mercury couger v6

To remove the spark plugs, remove the covers and you will see how simple it really is. The spark plugs are hiding under the covers.

Not only you will have to lift the covers, but to reach the back three you will have to remove the valve cover. Here's how to:

1. Remove the water pump belt cover (the black cover in the front of the engine compartment that has ?Duratec? on it.) If you have a 1996+ vehicle, you should think about removing it permanently, since it only serves to trap heat and slowly kill the IMRC box electronics.
2. Disconnect the following electrical connectors from the: MAF, IAT, TPS, IAC, and EVR. The EVR connector is black and is located at the very back of the upper plenum, next to the firewall.
3. Disconnect throttle cable from the TB and the cruise control cable, if equipped. For 1995 5-speed vehicles, take care not to lose the metal clip for the throttle cable when you are removing it. Once the cable is removed the clip will slide right off.
4. Disconnect the vacuum lines from the EVR. You may have to wait until the upper intake is unbolted and partially removed for better leverage.
5. Disconnect the vacuum lines from the top of the upper intake. Push down on the black plastic collar with a screwdriver and hold, and then pull the plastic line out of the intake.
6. Remove the air box along with the MAF and accordion tube.
7. Unbolt the throttle cable bracket from the upper intake (three 8mm bolts, one 10mm nut). Set bracket and attached cables aside.
8. Disconnect the air bypass hose at the upper intake. It connects right next to the IAC valve.
9. Disconnect the hose from the PCV valve that goes to the upper intake, underneath the throttle body. This is also a good time to change the PCV valve.
10. Unbolt the EGR valve from the upper intake.
11. Unbolt the upper intake. 12. Carefully remove the upper intake and set it on top of some clean rags or newspaper. It will likely be oozing some oily gunk out the bottom.
13. Cover the openings of the lower intake with clean rags to keep anything from falling into the openings. Anything that falls in will likely end up in the head or the cylinders themselves.
Now you are free to remove the back plugs

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1999 ford explorer? Is there a picture?

PCV BasicsPCV 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.

  • 4.0L is located in the valve cover near the brake booster

  • 5.0L is located behind the intake manifold (engine rear)
