Re: MAINTENANCE ON2005 FORD 500
The pcv valve is located on one of the valve covers and that one just snap out by hand and the filter should be close to the fuel tank right rear side of car close to the wheel under the car and you will see little platic clips remove the clips install new filter and then reinstall the clips be carefull since fuel might be under pressure when removing filter at rear passenger side
use a rag or someting to cober lines while unplugin filter

The PCV valve is only needed to be replaced when it no longer works properly. Look for the PCV valve and disconnect it from the engine and from the vacuum supply.. The valve should be clean and rattle when shook.
Symptoms of a failed PCV can be poor idle quality, oily residue in the air inlet of the intake manifold or possibly fail emissions test.
I would try another shop, A PCM Valve is not typically that hard to replace from my experience in older model Fords it sits up on top of the motor near the Crankcase.
The blowby vapors that end up in an engine's crankcase contain moisture as well as combustion byproducts and unburned fuel vapors. The crankcase is sealed to prevent the escape of these gases into the atmosphere, but the vapors must be removed to prevent oil contamination that leads to sludge formation. The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system siphons these vapors from the crankcase and routes them into the intake manifold so they can be reburned in the engine. The main component in the PCV system is the PCV valve, which is usually located in the valve cover. A hose connects the PCV valve to the intake manifold. A second hose between the air cleaner and crankcase or other valve cover (V6 or V8 applications) provides fresh air to help flush the vapors out of the crankcase. Some engines have a separate air filter for the PCV breather hose located inside the air cleaner. The PCV valve is a spring-loaded valve with a specific orifice size designed to restrict the amount of air that's siphoned from the crankcase into the intake manifold. This is necessary because air drawn through the valve from the crankcase has a leaning effect on the fuel mixture much the same as a vacuum leak. So air flow through the valve must be controlled within certain limits. At idle, air flow is reduced because little blowby is produced. When the engine is cruising and vacuum is high, airflow through the PCV valve is at a maximum to purge the blowby vapors from the crankcase. It's important to note that PCV valves are sized for specific engine applications. The wrong PCV valve for an application can flow too much or too little air causing driveability problems. Varnish deposits can clog the valve, so replacement for preventative maintenance is recommended (every 50,000 miles usually). Not all engines have PCV valves. Some (like Ford Escort, GM FWD cars with the Quad Four engine, etc.) ventilate the crankcase with a small breather hose and calibrated orifice. There is no spring-loaded PCV valve. On these applications, no maintenance is usually necessary.
All this to say that if this shop does not know this then i would look for another shop. Try going to the Better Business Burea for your area online and check some shops that have beenin business for a while. Also read customer reviews before making a decision and call them to ask some questions to see if they have ever done one of these replacements before. Hope this helps, Good Luck!!
PCV valves on engines that old will be found plugged into a valve cover. looks like a thumb sized item with a vacuum hose attached to the top. do yourself a favor and get a new piece of hose and a new grommet which fits into the valve cover. PCV valves are simple little critters, can be cleaned by a good soak in gasoline, and problems with them usually relate to vacuum leaks at each end.
for the ****** use some magic fluid like marvel or lucas found at parts stores, along with a fluid and filter change. you are not going to do any real maintenance or repair on a ****** that old. you just rebuild it.
The solution is to remove the grommet on the valve cover (for the small line) and replace it with a grommet for a 1985 CJ7 along with the PCV valve for the CJ7. Prior to replacing the grommet, you must bend a metal tang inside the valve cover using a screwdriver. This tang is what forms the "spring" in the built in CCV valve. Bending it up, opens the valve all the way permanently.
Next, take a 3/8 inch quick connect air chuck (the kind you screw into a blow-gun or tire chuck for use on an air compressor equipped with quick connect fittings) and replace the screw in nipple on the manifold (where the original tube attaches) with the air chuck. The chuck is an exact fit (threading and length)but has a much larger internal diameter for the crankcase gases to flow. Finally run a section of 3/8 inch fuel line from the newly installed PCV valve to the new air chuck nipple you screwed into the intake manifold. Attach a hose clap at each end of the fuel line and you're done.
Hello, according to Snap-On / Shopkey / General Drivers,
For your 2004 Ford Taurus:
1. Inspect Accessory Drive Belt
2. Perform Multi-Point Inspection (Recommended)
3. Replace Engine Coolant
4. Replace Engine Oil
5. Replace Engine Oil Filter
6. Replace PCV Valve
7. Replace Spark Plugs
8. Rotate Tires.
This is going by the general consensus from Snap-On tools and Ford Motor Co. Hope this helps :)
If you mean the crankcase breather filter, I've looked into this, but I haven't found any reference to this existing on a 1994 Taurus (at least with a with a 3.8L engine), except for some online parts companies that list it for the
1994, but either they're wrong, or if there were 1994 Tauruses that have a
breather filter, I suspect it's for an engine other than the 3.8L. It's used on earlier Taurus models, but
only up to 1991. Some people say
the PCV valve performs the function of the earlier breather filter, but I don't
see how, since the PCV valve just opens and closes, and does no filtering once
it's open. On one web page where breather filters
are discussed (http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/82-maintenance-repair/79542-bad-pcv-valve.html),
it's said that adding one to an engine that didn't come with one, doesn't help
increase horsepower or mileage, and can bring in air that's not metered by the
MAF, which can actually reduce horsepower and mileage.
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.
