Ok so I pulled it out and replaced it... It was stuck in the "open" position.

I thought something was up... The car seems to run smoother now too.

So for those of you that have not replaced your PCV, you might want to check it... (I have replaced mine two times since 26 DEC 2001.)

There are two types of people in the world. Those who build horsepower and those buy it. Which one are you? '87 Honda Prelude SI...RIP

If you haven't got it out I say LEAVE IT ALoNE!!! I replaced mine once, what a pain in the A-S-S ! Reason was that it was the original but it cracked. 45 bucks total for the replacement hoses from an Acura dealer and the valve. Good thing though the hose to the breather was shot anyway.


My god! $45 to replace it? Pain in the ass? I typicly replace mine every time i do a tune up. Around $3- and if you need a hose goto Advance Auto and pick one up for $1 or so. Takes me all of 15-30 Seconds to do...
From my extreme to another!!!! Providing that the hose is still pliable and the plastic is not brittle, sure it takes only a minute to replace. True it's dirt cheap for the valve at Advanced Auto, or the like, but as for OEM ho$e$...

Glad you found the problem and tackled it with no problem eaglemhf.

Just replaced mine over the weekend. The biggest PITA I've ever experienced. The plastic hose part coming up from the crankcase broke and the old PCV was stuck to the connector. I ended up buying a foot of hose and re-routing it entirely. Now my PCV is easily accessible around my IM. Replacing it actually helped my idle, which was surprising. Part was $2.19 at Auto Zone. Took me a few hours to complete the task, because it's nearly impossible to get to without taking out your IM.

My PCV valve is completely caked in oil/dirt. I think I'll go ahead and replace it, if only to see if it's as big of a PITA as people say... lol

This is the test experts do.

My G3 with under 100k went on auto gas pedal that I had to move it to Neutral. Then the manifold was cleaned and the mechanic had me change the PCV after his mouth test.

It is cheap - yes getting it off the hose is tricky - so I removed from the engine first and then just twist - it break loose - some threads:

RockAuto has it too.

It should be part of the tune up: Air filter, PCV .... anything else to add to the list?

Replacing the hose, need to be careful on the product - there are some poor quality for this purpose.

It's about $20 shipped for the PCV valve and all hoses from rockauto or about $40 from the Acura dealership. Assuming everything else is in good repair i wouldn't replace it more than once every 60-80K as part of a regular maintenance regime. Also I think that was a decade long necro...

230k miles on the original PCV valve. I just spray some carb/choke cleaner through it about once a year. Works like a champ!
