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!

                    Undoubtedly the simplest part to replace on my engine. No tools needed. Just pull the old one out of the rubber seat, pull off the air line, install new valve. 10 second job. Replaced an older Purolator that had been on for about 75,000 miles. Old one was still OK but had some gunk on it. Part was to inexpensive to clean old one so just dropped in a new one. No problems. I reserve 5 stars for parts that exceed all my expectations. Mechanically, this vavle is fine, but its hard to get excited about something so simple; thats why 4 stars.

                        How far does PCV valve go into grommet?

                          A:

                          With reference to your inquiry on the Purolator PCV Valve - part# PV769, the PCV valve is a vital part of the emissions control system on most vehicles. The PCV valve is usually plugged into a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It may be located on or near the intake manifold. A hose leading to the PCV valve is often kept in place by a clamp. Sometimes there’s a little L-shaped housing on the end of the hose that covers the end of the valve. Locate the PCV valve and loosen the hose clamp if there is one, or pull the little L-shaped housing off the end of the valve. Some PCV valves are held in place with a rubber grommet and can just be pulled free. Others are threaded into place. If you can’t unscrew the valve by hand, try to grasp its base with the open end of a combination wrench or a small crescent wrench. Remove the hose and blow through it. If the hose is dry, brittle, soft, spongy, or full of sludge or hard deposits, you should replace it. If the clamps are rusty or the grommet looks deteriorated, you should replace them, too. If the new valve screws into place, do this by hand to avoid stripping the threads in the valve cover. Make sure that the valve is seated securely. Start the engine, and check around the PCV valve for leaks.

                          The PCV valve should be the possible cause of the problem. However, 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.

                          The PCV valve is usually located on the valve cover gasket. It should be plugged into the valve cover gasket with a rubber or hard plastic tube running from it to the intake manifold.
