Question What is this part?

I need some help identifying this part. I managed to break the hose connection; I've duct taped it, but that is only a temporary solution. It comes out of the valve cover on the driver's side. I'm thinking PCV valve, but I want to make sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.







P.S. The pictures inverted when I uploaded them; I'm not sure how to change them.

YES, PCV valve.

You can get a genuine MOPAR replacement from RockAuto for about half price than from a dealership, I just did last week

When you replace it, the manual calls for MOPAR Thread Sealant with Teflon but I just used Permatex Thread Sealant with Teflon from Pep Boys. The dealership tech that installed the last PCV 2-1/2 years ago, didn't use any sealant and it has been leaking ever since

Could you not just use some plumbers teflon tape? IDK, just asking.

I thought about that, too, probably would work just fine, might have to get some that can withstand heat, but putting something on it would be better than nothing, like the tech didn't on mine 2-1/2 years ago! I just stated what the manual specifies just so somebody doesn't try something odd, like RTV sealant or a thread locker compound. You can see in the pic below where mine has been leaking. The area around the PCV and down to the back of the valve cover is wet with oil.

That is for NA only. Turbo cars have the PCV upright in the valve cover on the passenger side. There is some kind of vent coming out of the V/C where the PCV is on NA cars, but there is no PCV there. On turbo cars the rubber line runs to the air box where it has a sponge filter. Mine is screwed.

Mine "genuine Mopar" PCV came with sealant on the threads. It certainly appeared to be nothing more than old school white Teflon tape.

Although your statement is correct, the picture that the original poster put on the forum and was asking about was for a NON-Turbo so I only showed what he was asking for.

No doubt. You answered his question. Just putting the info out there so people don't think their turbo cars have 2 PCVs.

Does this look about right for the Turbo?



The pic is for a Neon but close enough.
