Can anyone tell me/show me (show me preferred with picture ;-) ) where the PCV Valve is on a 1998 Taurus with the Vulcan engine?

I'm not sure, but I got mine replaced at Valvoline (Instant Oil Change place) for $9.00 - so you could just roll in there, pay them $9 and make it their problem.

Your car does have one right? I know some cars list one but don't actually have one. mine (1990) is on the rear valve cover.

I know mine has one... they always make a point of showing you how bad your old stuff is at Valvoline in an effort to get you to let them replace it.

I may be remembering inaccurate info here, but I could have sworn that somewhere in my owners manual there's something that says the dealership will give you a free pcv valve after 100k miles. Does that sound familiar? I should probably look stuff up before I post... :redface:

Thats only on the Ranger (the free after 100k)

I found it last night.

Bought the part for $2.99 at autozone. Pretty good deal I thought.

Thanks guys.

Duratec ones, at least for my gen4, are not listed in the parts catalog at autozone and such stores. I had to get mine from the dealer for 9 bucks a pop.

does the pcv valve plug in real tight. my is a pretty easy fit on the rubber things..
i am wondering if that will cause any vacuum leaks.
