PCV Valve - Check and replace, if necessary. That's what our maintenance schedule says. Well, here it is:


The PCV valve is sealed to the intake manifold with two o-rings.
Remove PCV valve by unscrewing 90 degrees until it just pops out. I found pliers to be handy.

After tabs have cleared, pull valve straight up from intake manifold.
Check condition of two valve O-rings - grease them with a little engine oil, which should be almost dripping from the PCV valve anyway, just smear a little on the o-rings with your finger.


Give it a little shake - it should rattle. If it doesn't rattle, you need to replace it. Good luck finding it. I tried checker and autozone, they can't even order it yet. At checker, only the MOPAR part came up, listed at $42, but it wasn't available for order.

I knew where it was, but just didn't know how to check if it's still working. So shaking it is the way to check if it's good?

Yes .... shake it ... if it rattles, then it is still not gunked up and working properly ...

If you a have a 3.5L, that's NOT where the PCV is located.

I just changed mine yesterday :)

Here's the old white one (new piece is all black) and the packaging showing the part # I got from trademotion.com (aka Franklin Sussex Auto Mall) for about $27 + shipping :






PS : I originally ordered from rockauto.com, the part number listed for the 2007s, but then I got an e-mail saying the part number is no longer available and the order was cancelled, so I ordered the Mopar piece from trademotion.com :)

Can these valves be cleaned and put back or does a new one have to be put in? :confused:
