No they are usually easy to fit the crankcase ventilation hose helps the engine to breathe they are situated on the cyl block and go to the inlet manifold . Shouldn't cost too much on a ford fiesta they cost around 30 pounds including PVC valve and pipes

2 inlet pcv valve on 1985 ford bronco II can't find 2nd vacuum hose location


You have the correct pcv, the second port is not always used and the port that isn't used is simply plugged off. New pcv valves even come equipped with the block off plug.

Does the 240 have a pcv valve if so where is it located


No, it does not have a PCV valve. It has a flame arrestor between the #3 and #4 legs of the intake manifold. It is quite difficult to get it out and clean it and put it back in without breaking the plastic housing.
It has a large hose going to the top of it, a small vacuum hose going to the back of the throttle body on the intake manifold, and a large hose going down to the oil mist separator on the side of the engine.

ENGINE HAS LOW IDLE SURGE.ABOVE 1500 RPMS NO PROBLEM


Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. If you have the V-6 engine, those have a PCV hose under the upper intake plenum that likes to leak. You will need an upper intake gasket set, a new PCV Valve, and some PCV rated hose to fix it. DO NOT use regular vacuum hose on the PCV or you will be doing it again in about 6 months. Standard vacuum hose breaks down rapidly when it is exposed to engine oil.
.
Check all your other vacuum hoses first. Fix any leaks you find. If you don't find anything else leaking, then the hose under the plenum is your most likely suspect.

Where is the pcv filter located on a 2003 Silverado 5.3 liter? how do I replace the original filter?


Hi!!
The PCV valve is located on top of the Valve Cover, it is held in place by a rubber grommet and has a vacuum hose connected to it. The PCV valve can be easier to remove if you just pull the vacuum hose (with the valve attached) straight out and then remove the valve from the vacuum hose. Here is a picture of the PCV valve for easier identification.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1989 buick lesabre 3.8 and want to change


Remove PCV valve from rocker cover. Run engine at i
dle. Place thumb over open end of PCV valve to
check for vacuum. If there is no vacuum at valve, c
heck for obstruction in manifold port, hoses or PCV
valve. Repair or replace as necessary.

Turn engine off. Remove PCV valve. Shake valve and
listen for rattle of check valve inside. If a clear
rattle is not heard, replace PCV valve.

Visually inspect valve for varnish or deposits whic
h may make PCV valve operation sticky, restricted o
r
cause incomplete seating of valve. Replace if neces
sary. An engine must be sealed for the PCV system t
o
function as designed. If leakage, sludging or dilut
ion of oil is noted AND the PCV system is functioni
ng
properly, check engine for cause and repair as requ
ired to insure PCV system will continue to function
properly. An engine operating without any crankcase
ventilation can be damaged so it is important to
replace PCV valve and air cleaner breather at regul
ar intervals (at least every 30,000 miles). Check a
ll hoses
and clamps for failure or deterioration.

How difficult is it to change the PCV valve. 2004


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)

PCV VALVE REPLACEMENT


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.
