Purolator PCV Valve

Part No. PV233 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

The PCV valve is one half of the crankcase ventilation system - the other half is the breather filter. The breather flows clean air into the crankcase through a hose on your air filter and the PCV valve lets dirty air and crankcase gases out. These dirty gases and air get sent through the engine to be re-burned for clean emissions. An old PCV valve can cause rough engine idle, blown oil seals, fouled air filter and fuel system, fumes in the passenger compartment, excessive engine part wear, and shorter oil life. Although the PCV is not a pollution control valve, a worn out PCV valve can contribute to air pollution. So, it’s important to change your PCV valve for the safety of your vehicle - and the environment!

Comments about Purolator PCV Valve:

Installed this in my '97 Ford F150 truck. The OEM part seemed a bit "beefier" and fit more snugly than the Purolator - but it still works fine.

Comments about Purolator PCV Valve:

I was chasing codes P0171 & P0174 (lean banks) on my 2001 Ford F-150 for a MONTH trying to clear them in time for state inspection... no luck. Cleaned Mass Air-flow sensor, codes came back. Tightened a hundred hoses and add hose clamps everywhere, codes came back. Cleaned air filter (after market K&N, codes came back. Changed Fuel filter, codes came back. I was preparing to buy a new Mass Air-Flow Sensor (NOT CHEAP) when I decided to pop in one of the last things I could think of... the PCV valve. Behold... the frikken elbow has a huge tear in it! I thought I looked everwhere for this kind of vacuum leak. SO, in went the new PCV valve and a new rubber elbow. CODES CLEAR & HOLDING! Finally. Now off to the inspection and keeping my fingers crossed that i don't get pulled over between here and there.

    I bought the product to replace my bad one. The plastic attachment piece did not fit so I had to use the old one. Other than that it works great.

          Comments about Purolator PCV Valve:

          This product serves well under routine maintenance and out-performs the original PCV valve. Most people dont think of checking it while performing other maintenance, but this should not be overlooked and be replaced at least every year or year and a half.

              It is between the valve cover and the intake manifold. Rubber or plastic lines will help connect it.

              A:

              The PCV valve should be quite easy to replace once located. Just pull it out of the grommet and remove the line it is connected to. Then just replace it with the new one

              A:

              It should be on the driver side near the rear of the engine, and in sight. It should be white in color with two hoses coming off of it.
