Purolator PCV Valve

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!

                  A:

                  Some of the visible symptoms of a malfunctioning PCV valve include the presence of oil in the vehicle's air filter housing or air filter, as well as oil leaking around seals and gaskets on the engine due to increased crankcase pressure. You can remove and inspect the PCV valve by shaking the part back and forth. If the PCV valve is malfunctioning or becomes clogged, you will hear no sound when you remove and shake it. A functional PCV valve should make a rattling noise if shaken. A driver operating a vehicle with a malfunctioning PCV valve may notice rough engine idle or stalling at idle, as well as a decrease in engine performance including poor fuel economy, slower acceleration and an overall loss of power. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

                  A:

                  The PCV valve will normally be located on the valve cover of most engines. You will see a large hose connected to the valve inserted in a rubber grommet. This will be running from the valve cover to the intake box or intake manifold.

                  The PCV valve is located on the valve cover. The PCV valve will plug into the valve cover and have a rubber or plastic line running from the valve itself to the intake manifold.
