PCV Valve buzzing
« on: March 07, 2019, 07:30:09 PM »
Anyone with a 2013+ (when they changed the PCV system) notice their PCV valve buzzing. I suspect mine is on the fritz.... but if itís normal for it buzz on and off, then maybe not.

Itís a $10 part and 30 second fix... just curious though if itís normal.

TIA..

No PCV should buzz. Even a new one. New can be bad.

Its not installed correctly! The buzz your hearing is a large vacuum leak! Check the Hose connections and for codes! Check the Rear and Front CKCP Sensors!  Z

It has always had a buzz... even before the catchcan... itís just gotten more consistent lately. Picked up a new valve for $6... will swap it later when I am home. Should resolve that issue and prevent future issues.

Where did you P/up the new PCV valve from! Is the PCV valve Flush with the Separator! Sometimes you need to Bend the PCV Hose in order to Fit Flush against the Sep! If not it will cause an air leak! Z
