    A couple of months ago 'someone' noticed some oil leaking out of the A4 (97 1.8t, AEB). The culprit was the Pressure relief valve on the inlet side of the turbo. I found the part in my Bently, it's number 6 in the image: I decided to also change the PCV on the crankcase. Here are the...

    I've asked this before awhile back, but never really got a definate answer. Is there a pcv valve in the V6's, and if so, where? I've looked and looked, even checked out my Bentley manual and cant find it, can't even find any mention of it.

    In the process of installing the Samco hoses, I also replaced a black valve thingy on the airbox hose. It's about 5cm in diameter and was full of water!?! There was a bit of oil in it, too. I picked up a fresh one at the dealer last week as the one in the car was covered in nasty oil and just...

    Hi can someone tell me what the function of the pcv valve is? If my valve were broken would it affect performance and is thier oil going through this valve? The reason i ask is because my valve is coverd with oil on the outside. Also how much does this valve cost? thanks

    I did a search on vacuum leaks to try to figure out what is going on with my car. Anyway, I read a lot about the PCV system. I removed my PCV (round 3" diameter valve above the N75 valve) and it had a lot of oily water in it. I guess my question is, what does a properly functioning PCV do? I...

    How can one tell if the PCV valve is good or bad. I pulled my out and it looks like there is free flow between two ports in both directions. Bad?

    I've taken my car ('99 1.8T, Tip) in 3 times for some suspected oil leakage around the turbo and underneath the intake manifold. Each time the dealer wiped the parts clean and said they couldn't find anything. Well, it's gotta be coming from somewhere! After doing some research, I suspected...

    I pulled my PCV valve loose the other night and a LOT of thin oil poured out. I've taken it loose several times before and had a little oil come out, but this time I was shocked by how much there was. I'd say it was 1/8 cup or so. I've had a suspicion that the PCV valve was stuck closed, due...
