It sounds like the line from the PCV valve to the engine is blocked. Double check the valve itself, it should rattle when you shake it. Put it back in but don't connect it to the intake. If it doesn't blow out check for blockages in the line between the PCV valve and the intake or possibly the entry hole inself. Hope this helps.

How to replace AUDI (VW) PCV valve


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.

I have a 89 F150 how can I cause my transmission to shift fasterit seems very slow ,and where is the PCV located on this engine V6 -4.9, thx


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.

Where is my pvc on my 02 truck


Drivers side valve cover all the way in the back by the firewall. Usually the pcv tube has foam around it and makes the pcv valve a little obscure.

My 97 nissan 200sx 1.6 liter. Almost stalls when i stop, but it stays runing,and some times it does stall.


We have two Nissan 200sx's, a 1995 manual and a 1996 auto. Both had this problem and both turned out to be the same thing. The "idle air control valve." It was most noticeable if you ran the air conditioner and then came up to a red light. You would have to keep pushing on the brake and race the engine a little to keep it from shutting off. Replaced that part and both cars have never had the problem again.

Location of the PCV valve.


I don't have a mercury in front of me, or even a ford engine. however every PCV I have ever seen was plugged **** end into a valve cover and the other smaller end was fitted into a rather large vacuum hose. So do a hard target search of the valve cover(s) and you will find it. Note that the grommet the **** end snuggles into is hard and crusty and loses vacuum, so is the vacuum hose on the other end. While you are replacing the PCV valve get a new hose and grommet from the HELP section at the parts store and replace them all. Ten bucks will cover all 3 parts. Have a needle nose pliers handy to help you in removing the grommet.

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 was wandering if you might now why my air filter keeps gettin oil soaked


One of the first concerns is the health of the engine. Do we have a tired old engine allowing the blow-by gases to pressurize the crankcase? If so, the pressure would force the oil up the PCV breather hose and contaminate the PCV breather filter and air filter.

The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) System is one of the oldest and most neglected emission control systems. The valve is a calibrated vacuum leak controlled by a plunger and spring. Contaminates or changes in spring tension can directly affect the flow of the valve, which could result in oil accumulating in the air cleaner or an imbalance in the fuel mixture. Remember: For each gallon of fuel consumed by an internal combustion engine, one gallon of water vapor is created through condensation. Much of this condensation is formed in the crankcase. The PCV system is designed to control this condensation and remove gases which accumulate from the combustion process and collect in the crankcase, in addition to protecting the environment.

Conditions other than a defective or restricted PCV valve can lead to an accumulation of oil in
the air cleaner, sludge deposits, poor performance, or excessive oil consumption.
Check the following:
• The PCV and fresh air hoses are clear and free of obstruction
• The proper valve is selected for the application
• The valve is functioning properly
• The valve fits tightly in its rubber grommet
• Any O-rings or hoses are tightly secured to their mounting

Name of part?


It's the vacuum supply fitting, which supplies PCV valve and cabin controls.
Looks like the end is broken, get a new one and the new rubber grommet that goes in manifold.
Fit Grommet first, then lubricate inside grommet hole, then push in new fitting, connect hoses and your done!
