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.

Visually, the two parts look almost the same diameter wise. But I could feel the difference when installing my pcv valve with the new seal. It was much harder to seat compared to the old one.

Be careful when removing the old grommet as it’s brittle and can break and fall into the valve cover. I dropped mine in the valve cover and had to go fishing for it :mad: Not fun, believe me.

Thanks good to know.
It should fit my 97 because we take the same pcv valve (ev225).
