Can anyone help me find the pvc valve along with the cabin filter on my 2006 Taurus? I have no ideas where the cabin filter is at. Never had to replace one before.

As for the pvc valve, my past cars it has been right on the valve cover. I'm either blind (which is very possible) or hiding from me. Any help would be great.

This guide says is from a 1999 Ford Taurus but don't worry because is identical to the engine you have and here you'll find detailed pictures on how to find and replace the cabin air filter.

Nope, completely different spot (and a major PITA to get to).

It's not too bad. I have big hands and was still able to get to it. Although I did cut myself nicely. But you can do it without injuring yourself

It is located (standing on the drivers side facing the side of the engine) middle back of the engine. Literally. It is the only thing back there. Just have to squeeze your and in and your golden.

IIRC, someone said they did away w/ the PCV on the duratec in '05

Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for the day. Set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

So I wanted to change my PCV today for my 06 Taurus. Autozone, Advance Auto and Napa said they don't offer these yet. They said it was too new. So I went to the Ford dealership down the road and they said that they don't need to be changed unless your check engine light comes on. He said there is a sensor on it that will tell you when it needs replaced and that you have to buy the whole hose with it too. He said they are supposed to last 50,000 miles but that he has seen cars with 100,000 miles where the PCV was still good. Sure enough I look at it and there is a wire harness plugged into it. Something tells me that a PCV is going to be expensive to replace. But maybe not if you only need to change it every 50,000 miles or more or maybe never. Maybe you can take it out and just clean it with WD40.
