Re: Questions about pcv valves

There is a lot of truth to it because the stock one sucks. I am adding an aluminum one to my PCV system based on some research and results I read on another forum.

Basically, the stock one isn't really good enough to function completely. It can be forced open when it should be shut because it is a pretty cheap part.

Here's a thread I was reading about the whole PCV system and how the stock PCV is junkola...
