If your is like my 1995 jeep, it was mounted on top of the valve cover. I had to order from the auto parts store, a new grommet that holds the pcv in place. When I got the new one in, I cut out the old grommet, and pcv valve. Over a period of time, they will kind of melt together. It was a very cheap fix. and I'm sure there are no leaks. Hope this helps

Trying to replace PCV valve on 4.6 L 2001 Crown Vic. Believe it is located on valve cover on driver side, but not positive. I tied to pull it out to replace and it was so stuck I was afraid to use pliers...

PCV valves are usualy in the valve cover like you say. they only need to be changed if they quit working. If you pull it out of the gromet it is pushed into, just shake it. If the check valve inside makes noise then the valve is good. In 35+ yrs of working on cars I haven't seen a PCV valve fail. Here is a picture of it so you know what your looking at:

Automotive Vacumn Lines

Those vacumn lines that always have the boots and right angles that break; Okay try this;
From that old set of spark-plugs wires layin' in the corner, grab one and give it a firm pull on the boot; that boot will replace the right angle on the pcv valve: the one going in the the top the valve-cover and connected to the intake or trottle-body depending upon ,odel of car.
Remove the crumbled-up right-angle from the pcv valve and line and give the spark-plug boot a firm push and twist and it'll slide on, use a spot of oil and it'll even slide over the 3/8' lines, if you don't have oil, spit on the boot then push it on the valve and line .
This will work on many models and makes.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 2001 VW Beetle Turbo, 1.8L?

All these answers are WRONG!!! The PCV valve isn't located anywhere near the valve cover but underneath the Intake manifold behind the secondary air pump. The PCV hose starts just to the right of the base of the Oil dipstick tube and leads to the right (driver side) to a rubber T. The PCV valve is actually inside this T. You have to unscrew the clamps and carefully pull out the old Plastic PCV insert/valve and replace it with a new one. Most of the time you will also have to replace the hoses since they will be full of sludge/crud and may have gotten brittle from the heat of the 1.8 engine. It is very difficult to access the PCV valve on the 1.8 engine and unless you have doublejointed hands you may need to remove the intake manifold to get to it. But some have done it without removing the intake manifold. Here is a link to some pictures of the location of the PCV valve which in case is an insert residing in that rubber T.

Where is the pcv valve located on the 1993 Pontiac Grand AM 6 cylinder car? can't seem to find it.

Can't say for sure but every other PCV valve I ever saw had the big **** end stuck into a grommet in a valve cover and the little nozzle end stuck into a rather fat vacuum line. So what I would do is just confine my search to the valve covers and once found, I would also pull out the dry cracked old grommet and pull off the dry old cracked vacuum line and take them to an advance or autozone and have the helpful salesperson get me replacements for those also. All told your parts should be under 10 bucks and even if the PCV was not bad you have accidentally fixed some leaking vacuum.

Want to locate pvc valve on 2000 pontiac grand am 6 cyl

You'll find the PCV valve on the right side of the front valve cover. You'll need to remove the valve in order to troubleshoot it to determine if you need a replacement. To remove, pull the PCV valve out of the cover and detach the hose

Test the old PCV valve to determine if it needs replacing. Blow air through it in order to see if it is clogged. If it does not seem to ventilate, then you'll need to install a new valve.

Pop the new PCV valve into the spot of the old valve. With the correct part, it should snap right in. Take the hose and reattach it in order to complete the installation.

How do I remove the pcv valve from a 3.8 liter engine in a 2005 dodge grand caravan? I cannot pull it out.

1. BUY THE NEW PCV VALVE FROM THE DEALER. part #4648973AC (I paid $9.95 in the Detroit area). 2. PCV valve is located on top of 'rear' valve cover. There is a black rubber pipe connecting the PCV to the upper intake manifold. The rubber pipe is like an inverted 'U' shape. 3. To remove the rubber pipe, you will need to squeeze the band clamps. Remove the upper end first. You will then be able to rotate the lower end clockwise, if necessary, to get enough clearance to use pliers to squeeze the band clamp. Remove the pipe. 4. You should be able to see the small chrome pipe on the end of the PCV valve. However, the PCV valve is completely surrounded by a plastic collar/shroud, part of the plastic valve cover. So, the only part of the PCV that is accessible is the small chrome pipe. 5. THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO BY THE NEW PART FIRST. I needed to clamp onto the end of the PCV pipe with VISE-GRIPS. This will crush the end of the pipe. You will hold the vise grips in a horizontal fashion, towards your right, in your right hand. 6. Rocking the pipe, while carefully levering the vise grips on top of the plastic collar, you will walk the PCV valve up, and out. BE PATIENT. You do not want to crack the valve cover! 7. The rubber grommet should come out with the PCV metal valve. If not, you will need to pull it out (needle nose pliers?). 8. Install the new PCV valve. I used a film of white lithium spray to help the insertion. Note, there is a groove molded into the rubber grommet that must snap into place. I used a 5/8" deepwell socket as a 'pusher', to ease the PCV valve into place (just push, do not hammer). You should be able to feel it positively snap into place inside the plastic collar, otherwise it is not properly installed and will not seal. If properly installed, you will not be able to pull it out by hand. 9. Install the PCV rubber pipe. Slide the clamps towards the middle of the pipe, fit the pipe over PCVvalve. Be sure it is seated all the way to the bottom of the plastic collar. Squeeze the clamp and work down to the bottom of the pipe, then release. Repeat for the upper end of the pipe and spring clamp. 10. Have a cold one. You earned it.

Be careful about the PCV valve. If it's the wrong part, it can cause drivability issues. The grommet is important. It seals the valve to the crankcase vapors. Otherwise they leak out nullifing the purpose of the system. Also check on the other side of the valve that the hose back to intake manifold is not clogged or cracked.

Pcv valve

This is a ***** trust me I done it, I have the same car. Don't unless the valve has stoped working even if it has its not a big deal its just an emissions control device. you need a black rubber grommit, the pcv vavle and a new piece of small black hose with small metal clamp. If you go to a dealership they have special pices you can buy to make it easier. When doing this the grommit and hose might as well be replaced also they are small and inexpensive parts readiley available, just dont drop the old or new peices or push the old grommit into to itake maifold like I did. Peace
