Noticed another oil leak last week, figured my oil pan bolts came loose again on a count of my bad engine mounts. Then I peaked inside the engine bay and noticed this. How would one go about replacing the Pcv assembly on the block? Seems pretty tight in there.



Thanks guys.

how hard is it to get this part out? i think it may be time to revamp my entire pcv system. how much of a pain in the ass is it to redo my pcv system with motor in the car?

You sure actually coming out the breather fitting in the block and not the hose attached to it? I'd clean it off and trace the leak.

well i going to take apart the pcv system on sat maybe, but im looking for some advise. im considering venting to asmosphere, how would i go about it? just remove the check valve and PRV and run hose under the car? on my old b5 i del the check valve from the pvc assembly to the intake mani, but kept the PRV with the catch can attached. this did not work as i blew most of the top end seals. so i then removed the PRV and just ran straight hoses from the VC and crankcase to the catch can then from the catch can to the Y pipe. nothing was vented back to the intake mani what so ever. this system ran great untill i blew the motor.

Can i do the same thing with the 20vt or no?

Late update! It was the oil pressure switch. Leak fixed.

On to the Pcv though, is there any point in redoing my Pcv system. I have lots of brass fittings and 5/8 hose kicking around. Looking for a small weekend project really.

My thoughts were to delete the Pcv valve, delete the connection to the intake manifold and the intake and either run a catch can or vent to atmosphere. What are your thought, could this cause issues or will the car run the same.

Here is a drawing I made to give a more visual idea,

Leak fixed. It was the hose on the crankcase breather ball. Not clamped right from factory.
