Lightbulb PCV Valve test

Shake Your PCV Valve
Do-it-yourself and save $20

Perform the world's easiest diagnostic test: Shake your PCV valve to make sure it's working. It takes only 5 minutes to replace a bad one.

Locate your PCV Valve Some late-model Trucks & cars don't have PCV valves, so don't beat yourself up trying to find it

PCV valve replacement
Pull off the hose and remove the old valve. If it's bad, screw or push in a replacement and replace the hose.

This sounds complex, but it's not. Pull out your PCV valve every other oil change. In most cases, you'll find the valve on the top of the engine, connected to a vacuum hose. Slide the vacuum hose off the valve and unscrew or pull out the valve. Then perform the world's easiest diagnostic test: Shake it. If it makes a metallic clicking sound, it's good. If it doesn't make noise or sounds mushy, replace it. But don't replace it on appearance alone—all used PCV valves look dirty.

Need help locating your PCV valve? call or stop by the Dealer or your friendly mechanic.

For Those Who Fought For It...
