Can you use a heater hose in place of a pcv hose?
yes i had to use heater hose for PVC it hard to find the right size but it can be down i had to do it for my 06 chev cobalt
The pcv hose is connected to the Pcv valve and the intake manifold. the pcv valve is circular metal piece on the top of the engine cover. Just replace with any rubber hose with similar thickness and heat resistance. You may use same ring clamps if necessary
There are several types but generally the best are either the in-line heater hose style or the freeze plug style. If you use the in-line heater hose style, just cut the heater hose, put the block heater in place then make sure the heater control is left on at night. If you use the freeze plug style you'll need to remove an existing freeze plug and put the block heater in it's place. The magnetic… Read More
I have an 89 LSC and the PCV is located at the back of the plenum on the intake manifold. There is a hose coming out of it--pull up on the hose until the pcv comes out or the hose pops off of it----Its a stretch for sure and a flashlight is definitely recommended! there is a wire filter under the pcv. a deck screw taped to the end of a Phillips screwdriver is the… Read More
Yes. The PCV valve is attached to the intake by a hose and is located in the valve cover and held by a plastic retainer. Use a pair of pliers to loosen the PCV valve retainer. Unthread the retainer from the valve cover to expose the PCV valve. Pull the PCV valve from the valve cover grommet and remove the valve from the hose.
it is located at your valve cover driver side on the end of the hose the pcv valve is pluged into the valve cover at the end of the hose you may have to use a screwdriver to pry it out of the hole. is it a straight blk hose the goes to the fuel rail
Disconnect the send and return lines from the heater core and use a hose coupling and hose clamps to connect these two lines together
Standing in front of the auto, the PCV valve is located on your left. The PCV screws into the intake manifold just above the alternator. 1. Remove the two cap screws (10 mm) to remove the intake manifold cover. 2. Remove the PCV hose using needle nose pliers. 3. Use a 17 mm deep well socket to remove the PCV valve from the intake manifold. 4. Install the new PCV valve, PCV hose and intake… Read More
the pcv is located on the right top side of the valve cover. it has a hose connected directly to the crankcase cover.(on my car the cover is red)it is simple to replace and costs dirt cheap.NEVER open the hose and take off the pcv when hot. use a wescott for simplicity. specs for 1992 Nissan maxima se, single overhead cam, probably the same,different pcv for dohc though.
Water pressure from a garden hose is sufficient.
It is on the driver side engine valve cover. Its a small part, There is a short L shaped (right angle) hose about 1/4 inch in diameter connected to it. Lift up on the hose and it should disconnect from the valve cover. the small metal cylinder should pull right off that hose. Thats your PCV valve. Note: there is a similar hole on the opposite valve cover, but that has a larger hose that… Read More
Check for a heater flow valve in the heater hose they can rust shut easily it is a valve in the heater hose that opens when you turn on the heat and shuts when its not in use, if not then probably the core is plugged a radiator flush might help but you may need to have it cleaned and repaired.
If the rubber hose that connects the heater core to the intake on a 89 cavalier is missing what can you use?
You can buy a replacement hose at an auto parts store. Or, if your heater core is bad and you are not replacing it, you can disconnect the other hose from the core and reroute it back to the intake to keep the water circulating through the engine.
No you have to order them because they are specially molded.
You mean flush the heater core. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hose going to the hearer core. Use a garden hose to flush it in both directions. Use extreme care not to apply too much water pressure or you can cause the heater core to leak. No more than 10 lbs of pressure.
Does anybody have a fix for a 97 firebird 3.8 heater hose quick disconnect without spending big bucks for a new hose?
1) you can cap both sides off and not use your heater, do this by purchasing $2 worth of heater hose that fits over the quick connect spout on both sides and use hose clamps to secure it --- that's the cheapest way 2) I'm sure there are plenty of 98-99 wrecked firebirds at the junkyard you can get those hoses off of 3) if you have just one hose that is busted, cut the… Read More
Most heater hose is 5/8 inch inside diameter. Some cars do use a 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch also.
The PCV Valve is located in between the valve cover and the air cleaner. There is a vacuum hose that connects to the top of it. You will need to remove the air cleaner first and then remove the vacuum hose. Once the hose is removed you will need to remove 1 screw from the small bracket that is holding down the PCV Valve. Be careful and try not to messup the head of the… Read More
With the engine on idle, locate the PCV valve and use pliers to pinch the PCV hose that is located between the intake manifold and valve. Wait to hear the spring loaded valve click, and if you do not hear this, remove the valve but leave it connected to the intake manifold. Find the vacuum, and if you cannot, remove the valve from the hose and see if the engine stalls. You can find more… Read More
Pvc is not made be used in an automotive application. If you chose to go with an "off label" use your on your own! pcv (positive crankcase ventilation) is usually connected to a central vacuum source at the base of the carb.
If the problem is the rear heater metal tubing coming from the engine and running down the bulkhead toward the rear of vehicle you can replace with oem at about 149.00 for the line or you can remove the line and cut out the bad section replacing it with heater hose, protecting it from heat and zip tieing it away from exhaust. You can also use copper tubbing instead of hose.
Remove the hoses going to the heater core. Use a regular water hose with a high pressure nozzle and flush both ways.
I have a 1990 Mercury Sable V6 3.0L, and for me the PCV valve is located on the valve cover behind the intake manifold, to the left (if you're facing the front of the car). With the engine cold (has not run in the past 2-3 hours), locate the PCV valve (it has a black plastic 'elbow' attachment, and is approx. 2" tall). There should be two hoses leading out of the PCV valve. Since… Read More
Unhook the two hoses going to the heater core. Use a hose clamp to hook a garden hose onto one of the stems from the core. Turn the water on full blast. Run the water through until clear water comes out.
GM Heater Line Quick-Connect Release Tool this will do it. Otherwise you need to try and use a hacksaw to cut it off, though I wouldn't recommend it, might cut the line into the heater coil
Remove the hoses going to the heater core. Use a regular water hose with a high pressure nozzle and flush both ways.
The heater core can be bypassed without hurting the car. You will need 2 hose clamps and one piece of pipe about 1-1/2 or 2 inches long. The clamps should be able to fit on 1 to 1-1/2 diameter and the pipe should be able to fit inside the heater hoses. Remove the two heater hoses at the firewall and insert one end of the pipe on each hose to make a splice. Before making… Read More
i had the same problem w/my 97 avenger its a clogged heater core if u take the hose off from the fiewall and use a hose to unclog the heater core u should be all set.also thermostat can be gone id do thermostat then heater core
Yes, but it will still not be very hot unless it sits in the sun all day. You could use a solar heater to heat the water for the tub in the summer. You can make this with a long water hose and a pump. Put the hose in the sun and pump water through it.
Disconnect the two heater hoses that go through the firewall. Use a piece of pipe or a "funny pipe" union that you can pick up at a sprinkler parts distributor. Use a couple clamps to hold them to the union. Alternatively, you can get two funny pipe plugs and clamp them into place. There are plenty of ways to bypass the heater core. You only need to somehow keep the coolant from leaking. Another option… Read More
1994 Plymouth Voyager 3liter very little heat upper rad hose gets hot lower hose stays cold new thermostat made no change any suggestions?
Check the water pump. ---- Also check the radiator it sounds like it's plugged and there is now flow of coolant.--- ( circulation ) Check for a heater flow valve in the heater hose they can rust shut easily it is a valve in the heater hose that opens when you turn on the heat and shuts when its not in use, if not then probably the core is plugged a radiator flush might help.
Why does the bottom radiator hose stay cold and the top one gets hot and the heater hoses do to but the engine does not over heat?
Pull both heater hoses off up at the front of the engine. Prepare to lose some coolant when you take them off. Use water hose pressure to blow water in one hose so it comes out the other one. Put the other end in a bucket if you want to see what crud you flush out. Reverse the water flow from one heater hose to the other a couple of times until is is clear… Read More
Was told the vacuum line for the PCV valve is split causing the truck not to start. Cant find the hose Supposed to be under a bracket 91 Nissan Truck?
Remove battery and look toward engine from battery space use flashlight you see hose
Disconnect both heater hoses at the firewall in the engine comaprtment. Use a piece of pipe about 1-1/2 inches long that will fit inside the hoses you disconnected. Place each end of the hoses over the piece of pipe and clamp with two hose clamps.
Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses going to the heater core at the firewall. Use a garden hose to flush the core starting by back flushing it by inserting the hose on the outlet side then moving to the inlet side. Continue flushing until the water is perfectly clean. Do not use too much pressure or you will cause a leak in the core.
i think it is threaded into the left side valve cover (front 1) you remove th hose and use a wrench. dont over tighten new part the valve cover is plastic. The pcv valve will be right on top of the intake manifold center when you are standing looking straight in at the engine as you raise the hood. Also, as you stand at the front of the car looking in, follow the black hose… Read More
Very simple on that car. On the passenger side firewall you'll see two heater hoses running in. Remove the clamps and pull both hoses from the heater core. You'll lose anti freeze doing this. Either use a hose coupler the correct size or remove one of the hoses from the engine and mount the other hose to that location.
The PVC valve is located between the firewall and the top edge of the exhaust manifold and can be easily replaced with 6" needle nose plyers, a small tip flat head screw driver and a little patience. Find the PCV valve and first step remove the black hose that runs from the valve to the manifold. On the side of the manifold t here is a vacum hose adjacent to the PCV hose that can… Read More
You place hose weights every few feet on your pool skimmer hose so that it does its job.
2008 Grand Prix with the 3.8L. Locate the heater hoses at the engine. They are located on the passenger side next to the alternator. I wrapped a towel under the fittings to catch any spills. I also removed the coolant overflow reservoir bottle to give me a little more room for my pliers to remove the hose clamps. Do not remove the small hose to the bottle, just lay it toward the front out of… Read More
PCV on 1993 Altima The PCV valve on a 1993 Nissan Altima is located under the intake manifold just above the oil filter. You have easier access if the oil filter is removed. Not so easy... Answer: On the 2.4 liter the PCV is located at the passenger end under the intake manifold. It is located in a breather that has te be removed w/ 3 bolts.

I remove both heater hoses and use a garden hose to force water through the heater core. I just send water through both ways for a couple of minutes.
bmw do not use a pcv valve system, instead they use a cyclone seperator system, and crankcase vent valve. the system is located under the intake manifold. comming problems are they rubber inside go bad, and the hoses get dry and brittle and crack, most commin is the valve from the cyclone seperator hose that runs excessive oil to engine, this hose is connected at the base of the dipstick will break off at the… Read More
It doesn't use a PCV valve. It is a orifice ventaltion system. The rear elbow in the valve cover is a fixed size orifice and that hose hooks to the intake. The front elbow is a larger hole and it hooks to the air cleaner. Check all hoses for being plugged.
On Mercedes 190e the vents under the front seats blew out water all over. Is this due to heater core or faulty hose. The water pump has been replaced.?
Did you check to see if the A/C drain hose is clogged. You can sometimes use a hanger and clear the hose.
Hi, I changed the pcv valve on my 95 magna (auto) today, and hopefully I can describe it's location for everyone (although, I believe that there are some parts that differ in the 95 models and I am unsure if they differ from auto to manual, but this is where it is in my car and how I replaced it...): When you look at the engine, towards the back and slightly to the left there… Read More
Disconnect both hoses and just use or buy a u-shape hose and that will be your by-pass.......
There are no hoses that do this. There is only copper pipe, galvanized pipe, or PVC normally use in a home water supply.
Yes. In my race motors, I use brass plugs, and plug them off. My cars usually do not have heaters in them.
Remove your heater hoses from the core (cut them if necessary) and join the two ends with a heater hose coupling. Use screw ring clamps to secure the lines to the coupling. You can pick up all these parts at any major autoparts store.
1. windows fog up for no apparent reason heater not blowing hot disconnect hoses going to heater core. use garden hose to check flow. if not much flow backflush see if it unclogs. car runs a little hotter than normal.
