    Once a year I change the PCV valve...more

    This time while changing the PCV valve, I noticed the breather connection hose it was soft and creased, so I decided to change the hose but the hose is connected to another hose by a shrinking rubber sleeve. Now I have a cooling vent hose that goes to the expansion tank, plus the breather hose that goes to the PCV valve, this was a new task for me to R&R the hoses (P/N11151247903) the one I had the most trouble was the cooling hose going behind the engine you might need a long common head screwdriver or a long socket extension for a 6mm socket to loosen the support clamp or just cut the union sleeve and buy a hose long enough to connect between the PCV spud and the breather tube in the valve cover if that hose rubber is bad.

    Don't panic if you find coolant on the floor the cooling hose when removed it contains some coolant.

    Why do you change the PCV once a year? Is it a 1.9 thing? I've never changed mine...

    PCV valve

    Yes, it is 1.9L 4cyl...Since the PCV works as a filter and I drive (hard) in a desert environment, why not! plus it force me to look more closely to other parts that need to be change.
