Need help with 1991 Mustang 5.0 PCV valve *pics inside*
A week or 2 ago I noticed that I had a bit of oil leaking on my driver side valve cover. Appeared to be leaking from a fitting in the bottom of the Upper intake manifold. I found out from research that it was probably my PCV valve and it was sucking oil up into the intake. I opened up the intake and their was oil in there.
I cleaned up the valve cover and the intake but their was a small bit sitting in the intake, and some sprayed inside, and some oil residue on the valve cover
So today I pulled out the PCV valve
It still rattles which tells me it is still good right? Im gonna buy a new one anyways though.
I then tried to pull out the grommet and the screen. The grommet seems to be sealed in their with some adhesive, so It didnt want to come out. I used some pliers to pull out the screen and this is what I got...
I looked back in the PCV hole and their is something else still in their, I heard someone mention some type of filter while I was researching. Is that what it is?
I just want to know how to fix all this so I can start driving my 5.0 again. Does anybody have part #'s for the screen and the grommet?
And one more thing, when I pulled the side cover off the upper intake I noticed what looks to be a factory error. Its a little hole. It doesn't go right through, it just looks like it was an error when they cast it. Do you think this is affecting anything?
