Re: Location of pcv valve?
Got the new pcv valve from dealer and replaced it. The old one was dirty but the machanism still rattled. Maybe could have gotten away with sprayin it with carb/brake cleaner -but - I figured I already went through the trouble to figure this out and get the old one out. So, I put the new one in:
It just screws in and out. Caution: if you just drove from the shop to get the part, then the one you're taking out will be hot. There is a hose that seats on top of the valve - just pull it off. Used a set of channel locks to unscrew the old and set the new one. (If you look at the fourth pic closely you can see it threads in just past the rear of the fuel rail). Reattatched the hose to the top of new pcv valve. Piece of cake!
The WK has around 54k miles and was having an erratic idle that hovered around 500rpm's. Now it purrs along at a steady 600rpm's. Plus, while I was figuring all this out, yesterday I changed fluids in front/rear diffs &
t-case, and changed brake pads. A good couple days work.
