How to check PCV system


Guest

Recommended Posts

I have a small leak at my intake manifold. It was suggested that I check the PCV system to make sure that there is not excess pressure causing leaks. Is this something I can do myself easily? I'm not very mechanical. Or is it inexpensive to have a shop check it.<P>Steve

The easiest way to check to see if there is a vacuum being formed in the engine(without pulling the PCV valve: remove the snap on cover on the top of the engine, pull the steel line out of the rear of the front valve cover, start the engine and place your finger over the open hole. You should feel a slight vacuum that builds up slowly. If you have a vacuum, it is working properly, if not, or if you have presure pushing out, the PVC valve is most likely defective.<P>------------------<BR>Hal, btk@vbe.com
