Do you have more then 60K on the vehicle? If not, why do you want to
replace it? I'm still running the original at 120K in my 92. I
believe they are part of the emissions control system and have to be
certified to last at least 60K just like the rest of the emission
control stuff, might even be up to 100K now. In my 92 it was to be
replaced free by the dealer at 60K.

Re: PCV location Explorer Sport

I have 82k and my mileage has taken a nose dive. I am changing
everything I can think of.

Can anybody tell me where the PCV valve is located?

Did you change the spare tire?
The specs on the air in it have been changed since 2001.

Instead of just changing everything you can think of, why not find out
what the problem is?

It's not likely to be the cause but I can understand that you would
want to try those things that are cheap and easy. You should be able
to follow a hose that's about the same size as the one going to the
brake booster. Find the brake booster vacuum hose then look for
another one just like it and follow it to it's two ends. On one end
should be the PCV. Most likely it's somewhere along teh back of the
engine area. I'm not familiar with the locations of the V6 but on the
older 5.0L v8s it was under the upper intake manifold,nearly in the
center of the engine, and very hard to see and get to.

Re: PCV location Explorer Sport

Thanks, I found it.

Learned an important lesson. Buy Ford spec parts. The Fram pcv valve I
bought has a little bigger barb on the nipple making it impossible to
get in the hose.

Bloody knuckles later I put the old Ford one back in. I will go to the
dealer tomorrow and get a new Ford one.

The egr valve should be easier it's right in front. These are due soon
anyhow.

I took a nylon tie and tied it around the PVC hose leaving the loose
end sticking up. Now when I want to change the PVC valve I just
follow the nylon tie to the hose and follow the hose toward the
passenger side of the car and remove the PVC valve while it is still
attached to the hose. It is working in the blind. Why didn't Ford
put the PVC valve on the valve cover instead of hiding it in back of
the engine.

Re: PCV location Explorer Sport

I believe that if you will take the plastic nipple off the Fram unit, it
will be identical to the Ford unit. I think Fram makes its PCVs universal
and so it comes with an extra plastic nipple which must be removed for the
Explorer application.
