Default PCV valve

Hi. I have a 2004 Endeavor XLS AWD. Is the PCV valve easy to get at and change?

They actually do wear out. And its worth the 3 dollars to know that your evaporative recirculation system is working properly. they are located off the left side of the front valve cover. Looks like a long 14mm nut with a tube plugged on to one end. They can get gummed up and the valve sticks when they have not been changed in a while.

lets see... have you worked for mitsubishi for 17 years?
no?

well, i have. they dont wear out. its not the "evaporative recirculation" system. its the crankcase ventilation system.
yes, they CAN get gummed up... but that's only if the car is neglected in the first place. change and maintain your oil, and its shouldn't be an issue.

some do, some dont. change it every 30,000 miles when you have your major services done, and it wont ever be a problem. words from a 20 year vet of mitsubishi.
