With the hood open the valve is at knee level slightly just in front where the transmission bell conects to the engine. In shape it looks like a little elbow.It just slips over the nipple on the PCV valve and the PCV valve is set into the grommet on the canister on the front of the block. --------- this will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Car runs very rough at stops, dies at times but restarts, higher speeds runs great ,smooth. At idle sounds like vaccum leak inside throttlebody also slight manifolds to eng. head air leak, engine shakes...

There is a TSB for the PCV hose. The elbows at both ends get holes in the underside that you can't see unless you remove them and look. This is a very, very common issue on the ZX2. You can get a new PCV hose with both elbows for about $30 from the Ford dealership. You only need to remove the air intake to gain access to the PCV hose to replace it.

Where is the pcv valve

Generic response.... fords...
PCV valve is on the top of the engine... its input side is connected to a 1 inch diameter hose that goes into the valve cover. The output side goes into the intake manifold. Exact intake connection varies by engine and year/model.

The PCV valve is about the diameter of a thumb and about the same lenght.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 2001 ford escort?

Standing in front of the car looking at the engine, if you look to the lower right corner of the engine, it's almost hidden under the engine there.

There is a black tube connecting to the pcv valve there, pull that up and out and you'll find hte pcv valve there.

If you need pictures, let me know.
