I did it while I had the IM off (easy to reach). What's the factory change interval?

Not a maintenance item. You only replace it if it fails.

That's what I suspected. It's a "lifetime" part, sorta like the cat converter and fuel filter.

Changed mine once. less than $2 from o'reilly's instead of 25 from the dealer.

I was loosing oil and after having it looked at, was told to replace it b/c oil was passing through the valve and getting sucked into the IM. So far i have not been loosing oil.

Please tell me you are joking about the fuel filter...

Anywho I will go with this answer (sounds good and make cense.)

"The pcv should be replaced every 35,000 miles. Just cleaning the pcv is not enough. The part that fails on the pcv is the spring and cleaning it will do nothing. This part is cheap and can have a significant impact of gas mileage and on how smooth the car runs. Not the place to be cheap."

And that answer is from:

Thanks 97lsteggy

Changed mine once. I have a 2000 DB8, and changing it was a pian in the ass.

People commenting on how easy it is to replace should take note that on different Integra engines the PCV is located in different places; some are simple to replace, some are pretty much a B-I-T-C-H (unless you have REALLY small hands). Mine, unfortunately, fell into this latter category.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. M.T. A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. R.H.

You need to change it when is clogged. Take it out, shake it, if you hear ticking sound, that means the valve inside is still good, but if you shake it and got no sound, that means is clogged and should be replace. You should see improve gas mileage after replacing the valve.

in addition, too much rattling can mean the spring has failed, if you rotate it (valve facing up, to valve facing down) and hear a click, its likely failed.
