Where is the PCV valve on 2007 GMC Sierra?
Just so, how do you know if the PCV valve is bad?
Symptoms of a Stuck PCV
- Engine misfires at idle.
- Lean air-fuel mixture.
- Presence of engine oil in PCV valve or hose.
- Increased oil consumption.
- Hard engine start.
- Rough engine idle.
Subsequently, question is, why does AFM cause oil consumption? The AFM excessive oil consumption problem usually crops up on vehicles that go on long highway drives. These kinds of trips don't put much stress on the engine, so the AFM system deactivates pistons. A shield was added that keeps the oil from being pushed out and sludging up the pistons.
where is the PCV valve located on a 2000 Chevy Silverado?
The PCV valve is located at the rear of the engine on the side nearest to the brake fluid reservoir. The PCV hose is the widest of the three hoses in this location (the two thinner hoses are connected to the firewall).
How do you change the PCV valve?
Follow these instructions to remove your vehicle's PCV valve in order to check, clean, or replace it with a new one:
- Locate the PCV valve and loosen the hose clamp if there is one, or pull the little L-shaped housing off the end of the valve.
- Remove the valve.
- Check the hose and the hose clamps or grommet.
