PCV valve location?

1995 Ford E250 4.9L L6 cargo van 176k miles.

I just bought a new pcv valve for this van with the intention of replacing
it, but even after looking at both the Haynes and the Chilton manuals.. I
still cannot figure out where the thing is located. The manuals basically
just say 'the pcv valve is here' and they show some artist rendition of the
valve.. yet with no explanation of where 'here' is.. I've been looking all
around the engine compartment with no luck in finding the thing. Would
appreciate some pointers and please keep in mind im still a beginner when
it comes to this stuff.


thanks again
Jay

I believe the valve you are looking for is to vent the crankcase. I
would look for a hose running from the valve cover or air cleaner.

Re: PCV valve location?

The vacuum source for any PCV is on the intake manifold. Search the
manifold and follow any fairly large vacumm hoses. Should be able to
locate the valve at the other end of the hose...

Should be on top of the valve cover, toward the rear. Take off the dog
box & you'll probably be staring right at it.

Autozone.com says:

PCV VALVE
On your 1995 FORD TRUCK E250 3/4 TON VAN, the PCV VALVE is:
FRONT SEATING AREA, CENTER, UNDER ENGINE COVER,
MOUNTED IN TOP OF REAR VALVE COVER

There's also this diagram of the intake:

# 7 is the PCV vacuum fitting. Follow its hose under the manifold and
it should lead right to the PCV valve.

On my '86 4.9 it was on top of the valve cover in the rear. The engine
cover had to come off to reach it.
