Check the relays under the hood.
There might also be a big relay up under the dash somewhere.
The time to have looked for it was while it was still clicking. They're easier to find that way.

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. http://newbeetle.org/forums/1-8-liter-turbo/45626-pcv-valve-location-2000-beetle-1-8t.html

Changing the pvc system on a vw cabrio and need to know if is ok that there is oil on both ends of where the hose goes


The PVC system recycles the vapors in the engine ,by a vacum pulse created by the PCV valve. This also picks up some oil vapors and is normal to have oil residue on the related parts. Let me know if that helps

How do you find and replace the pcv valve on a 1996 Buick Park Avenue?


3.8 liter non super charged.

Remove the plastic cover over the top of the engine. on the passenger side of the intake plenum there is a senor (MAP Sensor). That sensor mounts to the top of the PCV cover. Remove the MAP sensor. Remove the cover and the PCV valve will be underneath.

High oil pressure


You can't go by the gage on the dash, you need to hook up a manifold gage to get an accurate reading. Did you check the oil filter bypass valve AKA oil relief valve?

Can anyone tell me (or show me a picture) of where the PCV Valve is on my 1996 ford Taurus?


PCV Valve is in the end of 1/2" or so size hose inserted into a rubber grommet in the top of one of the valve covers. I believe it's on the passenger side closest to the firewall.
If you have the 24 Valve engine, the PCV valve is on the drivers side of the engine compartment, if you're facing the front of the vehicle, just under the air intake hose. Its not directly on the engine but rather in line with the oil separator tube/hose. Follow the black accordion tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body valve. Place your hand on the bottom of the throttle body and you will find the PCV attached to two short rubber hoses. Hand access is limited, so you have to feel for the PCV and blindly remove the hoses from the PCV. Be patient, and allow time to finesse the new PCV onto both hoses.
I recommend purchasing this molded new hose for a few dollars from your Ford dealer. They tend to clog or collapse after several years. The whole process can be done in 15 to 30 minutes and save you a lot.

Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted

Choppy idle


Check your IAC or Idle Air Control Valve. They often gum up and would likely cause a problem like this. You may be able to clean it yourself. If you risk getting cleaner fluid into the IAC motor, then you may ruin it.
Also, your air temp sensor might cause this; it located in your air intake system (mine is just above my air filter).
