      Where in the world is the small PCV check valve?


      that one...

      Or do they not use these in the newer 1.8t's? I have an '05.

      Under the intake manifold. Follow the Y breather hose down from the right hand side of the valve cover until you come to a T-piece . The PCV valve resides in the T-piece.

      Wrong, that is the PRV. The OP was correct with that picture, it's under the manifold in a T section leading into the manifold to suck in vapors.



      It's #27 on this diagram, the PRV is #11

      You need to remove the engine cover, upper and lower. Then you can unbolt the metal try with all the hoses, N249, and N112 under it. There are 2 10mm bolts holding it down.

      search first... come on.. if you would have looked in the faq you would have found it with the diagrams... I'm going back to my cave and not coming back here for awhile again I hate all these pointless threads where the answer could have been found easily within a couple seconds of looking

      It would be nice if before someone could troll the forums that they had to read the faqs first and sign that they read them and had spent a few hours in there before posting.

      There's always hazing... could have sent him on all sorts of wild goose chases all over the engine first.

      "Why did you do that?"
      " I dunno, because is cool?"
      "Your an idiot"

      thank you

      and thanks for the legitimate answers it's really appreciated and hard to find on here anymore


      FYI: I spent 30 min. in the garage over the weekend on the laptop looking, found some things however nothing clear enough to have at it.

      Here you go Travis. Check valve is item 6. Not all vehicles use item 10. I have a different hose for item 10.

      Thanks guys, I'm actually removing it entirely and introducing a catch can. I'd rather the sludge get caught in the can than clog the crap out of the check valve.
