Did the PCV valve fall apart? Looks like the internal plunger but no spring. ( I don't know your car specifically, just going on what car parts look like )

this is about 1/2" long and smells Like a lot of miles of clean hot Lube oil
Some import engine have a orifice or needle valve/check ball to restrict flow to from the head
Some are placed in the head others are placed in the oil passage in the block..

I have never had the head off a 2.4ltr Turbo motor and hope its not what im thinking it is......W

Where did you end up finding this? ( On floor , in oil drain pan , under valve cover ? )

Digging through the manual, I found a cylinder head restrictor but it is part of the head gasket ( and will just be a small hole not a valve. )

Many times under piston oil squirter have a valve that shuts them off when oil pressure drops ( at idle ) but they would be part of the squirter and a check ball / spring type of operation. This done to prevent oil pressure from dropping too much / loading the cylinders / rings with oil causing a idle oil burning situation.

I wouldn't expect plastic to be used in the oiling system especially as a regulator.

I'm still voting for PCV valve internals or maybe a shipping plug.

In searching the internet, I came across this pic of the internals of a Chevy PCV valve, but the second item from the left looks exactly like what the OP to this thread found.

You guys are "Money"
It fell out of the head when i was pulling it out of the car I heard it but wasn't till I was have through the torq sequence That i looked down and there it was
when i bought the car two years ago the PCV was Gutted
Replaced it and drove it....guess we found the guts worked it way pass the Baffle in the valve cover other Piece Like you shown is still in the baffle i can hear it when i shake it.....
.

I looked in the PCV and there it was same stamp # and all
.
I was hoping it was not some part of the oil feed to the head to limit oil supply to help with Hydrolic lifter "Float"
.
.

Thanks again For the help..
.
.
....W...
.
.Found a Bent #1 cyl Intake valve stuck a new one in
#1 cyl it had low compression...
.. FELPRO head gasket
.

I've never seen someone use a valve spring compressor that way. The adjustable "fork" end is what I always used on the spring. I put the solid piece in the center of the valve. But, hey, whatever works, right?

The spring compressor is just parked there and is in the correct orientation.
