I replaced the PCV yesterday. It was a bit time consuming, but it wasn't awful. I was off a little bit on the mileage, the car is just shy of 195k miles.
The PCV valve really wasn't in that bad of condition. The PO said that he always ran Valvoline FS at a quick change place, 6k mile OCI.
The old valve wasn't sticky at all. I compared it to the new one; I slowly tipped them to see in which one the valve would move first, and they were pretty much the same.
I paid $6.08 for the valve and $15.81 for the intake gasket. The dealer gives me a little break.
So, it was $22 and a half of a Saturday wasted. Oh well, I have wasted far more money and time in other ways.
I have a piece of mind now. If I hadn't done it, I would always be wondering.
My Fusion has 117k miles on it. Maybe I will do it at 200k miles too.
Maybe I'll do the Corolla again at 400k miles.
I didn't take any pictures, I'm old school and just never think of it while I am in the middle of doing something like this.
The inside of the intake runner were a little bit wet and oily, not terrible.
