Sorry Darryl I am not conversant with PVC connected to cars. Do you perhaps mean PCV?
Positive crankcase ventilation is sometimes controlled by a valve which should be checked, cleaned or replaced as required during routine maintenance.
The PCV valve is often found screwed into the engine valve cover and is part of the engine breather system which vents foul crankcase emissions either into the air cleaner or into the inlet manifold.
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!!
if your rocker shaft was busted and the valves were not opening, alot of the unburned fuel in those cylinders will end up in the crankcase. the problem is that fuel dries things out and hinders lubrication, the crankshft and camshaft bearing and journals can become damaged. fix your rocker, put fresh oil in, then change it a second time after about an hour of running, use a quality oil additive like MOA or Lucas stabilizer in the second change. low oil pressure can indicate worn crank and cam bearings and or journals.
anywhere up to about 190-220 is normal. You might want to wire your fans up to a switch so you can run them all the time/at your discretion if you don't like it that hot. If you get a second and found this helpful I would greatly appreciate a rating. Thanks, Lee
