Default PCV Valve

Stole this picture from the UK forum. Will save it and use it when someone asked about the valve.



The PCV valve (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) is a one way valve that vents your crankcase gases back into the engines intake. In the "old days" these gases would have been vented into the atmosphere but with the emission laws now, this is not allowed.

The poster was working on the engine. The rubber hose is just stuck out of the way becuase the air filter boxes are out of the car. Battery cable is disconnect also.

The poster is a friend of mine and he has 3 gold PT Cruisers.
