    05 Sport Trac - Cant get PCV grommet in the hole. Any Suggestions?

    Im trying to replace a PCV Valve grommet on my 05 Sport Trac but I can't get it to fit in the hole. Ive ordered 4 different ones and although all were different in design they all had the same diameter and thickness. And I haven't been able to get any of them seated. They all seem to be too...

    VCT (variable cam timing) seals leaking - 2013 PIU

    2013 PIU, 94K, well maintained. Synthetic oil. I had planned on doing my plugs and PCV before winter, so since the manifold is off, why not address my VCT seal leak too. Also called a VVT (variable valve timing) it seems. Also, since I have the valve cover off, is there any advantage to...

    4.0 OHV PCV Grommet Part 42592

    Just thought I’d post this info in case anyone needs it too. I recently decided to change the pcv grommet on my 2000 since I’m redoing the entire vacuum system. Below is the part that I ordered through advance auto. I imagine it’s the same for all OHV Explorers, or at the least 98-00...

    Jerking when under 1000 RPM

    Whenever I slow down and the rpm is under 1000, no pedals being pressed, the RPMs start to go up and down and at sometimes can hit close to 0 and the car feels like its jittering. At higher speed, the RPMs are normal and have no problem driving. I have a 2015 PIU with 120k miles. Do any of these...

    New to this site: Where and what is the PCV valve? Where are these hoses supposed to connect?

    My 1994 explorer (4 door limited) has been having some troubles. My idle is not even, I have had the air tubes pop off the tree with Transmission fluid on them. I have looked around and see that the modulator needs to be replaced. I am changing spark plugs and wires. I am heard that the PCV...

    New member needing some help

    Hello everyone I have a 98 SOHC V6 in the UK and it is running very rough on cold start ups. I've replaced the PCV valve and the idle air control valve which did make a difference, albeit for the engine to rev quite high every time it's started hot or cold. Is there any suggestions on what I...

    PCV Valve

    So I noticed a lot of oil moisture around the valve covers of my 2003 ford explorer 4.0l. It seemed like it was coming from the rear of the engine so I checked the PCV valve. Sure enough the thing popped right out without twisting it. I removed the hose that runs up to the intake manifold and...
