Yes it will.
Stuck or bad PCV valve on the Valve Cover to the carb or throttle body. The other is the EGR valve. Most likely the PCV.
All but a very few rare SD Pontiacs are equipped with the PCV valve located in the valley pan. It would be just ahead of the carb in your car.
It's on the valve cover, look for a hose that goes to the carb and the pcv valve just pushes into the valve cover through a rubber grommet.If this is a Pontiac powered Trans Am the PCV valve will be in the valley pan, just under the intake. Should be in front of the carb.
NO it would not.
If the vacuum hose connected to the PCV valve was disconnected, it would idle poorly if at all, otherwise, no.
in the valve cover left side and hooked to carb
Follow the 1/2" to 5/8" black round hose (usually pre-formed to shape) from carb. Will go to PCV valve in the valve cover on engine heads or will be in the intake manifold(which the carb sits on)
It hooks up to the vacuum ports on the carb or intake.
below the carb. on the driver side
Check your PCV valve, EGR valve, ect. A motor needs ventilation, and for some reason yours is not getting any. PCV valve, stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. If plugged, that would certainly cause it to puke oil out, some where, anyway. PCV goes into one of you valve covers, and runs a hose to the back of the intake manifold, probably behind the carb.........Chuck.
It's a fairly straight forward procedure. The PCV valve mounts in the valley pan. Run the hose from the PCV valve to the large vacuum port at the bottom of the carb. That's it.
It is very important to change PCV valve. If valve is old it will plug or seize. This will cause oil pressure to rise and may cause leaks. Most likely the valve cover gaskets will leak if PCV valve is plugged.
The PCV valve is just to the left of the carberator...if your looking at the carb. follow the hose comming out of the center of it (should be rubber and hard plastic combo) that plugs into the PCV valve. I believe the answer is that it does not have one...I have a 2000, and it doesn't have one......
A bad PCV valve can cause the engine to smoke. The valve is easy to change in most engines to correct the problem.
Yes, you can clean the PCV valve. Take off the PCV valve and get a spray can of carb cleaner. Just spray into the valve and just enough to clean out any gunk that might be in there. You should hear it rattle when you shake the valve.
I guss the old way spray a little carb cleaner in it and shake it.
Pull upward on the hose that the PCV valve is in. The PCV valve will pull out of the hose. The PCV valve is located in the valve cover.
No, the only thing a dirty PCV valve will cause is a build-up of gas pressure inside the engine which make seals and gaskets fail.
yes. if the valve is plugged or stuck closed, oil can be sucked into the intake through the pcv breather.
it doesn't have an official pcv valve just the vent fittings which need to be cleaned out periodically.they are the elbows on the valve cover,clean the tubes out also.spray a little carb cleaner inside let sit and hose out
did you check the condition of the valve stem seals while you had the head off? bad valve stem seals will allow oil to leak into inlet manifold . the head needs to be off to change valve stem seals
It might be that your pcv valve is plugged or the egr valve is sticking.
Disconnect the PCV valve tube from the PCV valve.Disconnect the PCV valve electrical connector if it has one.Turn the PCV valve counterclockwise to remove from the valve cover.To install, reverse the removal procedure.
Hey Chris==It is in the right valve cover. There should be a hose from it to the intake or carb. GoodluckJoe
