Default Changing PCV Valve

Originally posted by sciachir

As I was changing the PCV valve yesterday, I decided to take pics during the process. I hadn't seen any on the forum, so thought I would. Hope someone finds them hopeful. I've posted them in order.

The first thing to do is to remove the PCV hose. I have the "pinch" type clips. The easiest way to remove them is to use standard pliers. Since you should replace the tube, also, you don't then don't need to worry about damaging the hose when removing it. It takes some force to get the tube off. Simply turn it side to side as you pull it off, taking care not to damage the tube. I used fuel line (thanks for the tip), for the tube, rather than pay the price for an an PCV tube.



Use a 10mm socket to remove the bolts from the top of the cover.



The cover will probably not come right off. I used a rubber mallet to tap the cover. You might have to tap it on the front of the cover to remove it.


Look at the sludge in that cover! I used a rag and a toothbrush, along with some degreaser to clean it up. I actually sprayed the cover with "Gunk" degreaser and washed it, taking care to complete dry it before reinstalling.



THIS is the location of the PCV valve. There was a lot of grease in there. Make sure to clean it up.


You can very faintly see the gasket that sits around the lip of the base that the cover sits on. Mine was fine. Be sure to inspect yours before putting the cover back on. It may or may not need replacing.


This is after I had cleaned up the cover.


You then need to take a 16mm deep socket to remove it. Is was extremely hard to remove, and took a lot of force. BE CAREFUL, though, because you could possible strip it.


This is the location of the PCV valve after it was removed.



Installation is the reverse.

They belonged to the original poster....he'd need to fix them or someone else will have to grab pics. This is an easy job though and the instructions are straightforward. The online manual can walk you through it too if you need more details for the time being

I am pretty sure you can use almost any other 10 mm bolt off the car as long as the length is the same.
