DIY: PCV Valve Check & Replacement

Hey, its been a while since I wrote up a installation DIY for you guys. Anyway, here it goes.

Total Time: 93 seconds

Fram Part Number: FV309
Purolator Part Number: PV1039

Tools Needed:

- Pliers
- 10M Socket & Ratchet
- Screwdriver (only to remove plastic engine covers)

Comments:

- The installation was the most easiest thing I have ever done to the accord v6, and I recommend everyone who has not changed this yet to do so asap. I had only 26,000 miles on my car and I noticed the pcv valve was pretty clogged. These are very affordable, only around 4 dollars to change. And immediatley after the installation, I noticed I had a MUCH smoother idle.


Check & Replacement:


Step 1:

-While your engine is cold remove all your plastic engine covers. Remove the 2 10m bolts from the rear plastic that holds the spark coil-pack connetors. Now disconnect the 3 connectors from the spark plug coil-packs (remember which wire goes where). Once you have the bolts, and connectors removed, yank the plastic shroud out of the way.



Step 2:

-Disconnect the pcv from the rear head by pulling on it (its underneath the IAT sensor). It will come out very easy.







Step 3:

- Shake the old pcv to see if it rattles, if it rattles good.. then your pcv valve is ok. If it doesnt really make a nice rattle, then chances are it is clogged. Just go get a new one, and replace in reverse order.

here is a picture of the New (left) and Old (right) pcv valve

your kidding right?!?!?! you should have it changed like NOW......having a clogged PVC will hurt you gas mileage.


ask.com:
"A clogged PVC valve or hose can cause a rich mixture, while an air leak may create a lean condition."

Thanks for the good write up abram2001. I just checked mine. The instructions were great, but I think it takes more like 5 minutes, not 93 seconds. I didn't need a screw driver, the cover just comes right off after being unbolted. I have 72,000 miles on my '98 but the PCV still rattled, so I put it back in. Mileage is also the same now (well, a little better actually since I put in the throttle body spacer and performance headers) as when it was new, so I dunno why it isn't clogged, but it doesn't seem to be.

How to I unclog cpv clogage? I replaced it, but engine light still comes on, can't pass smog. I replaced EGR valve already as well, but I may have to clean out the clogage. How do I do this? It's 2001 Honda Accord
