    Wondering where these hoses connect.

    So we got my intake and heads off, both of theses pcv houses were connected in their respective places in the valve covers and intake. But behind the intake they were just flopping around. Do they connect into each other or something else. I'm sure this is where some of my oil issues are.



    This one is the passenger side and has two outlets.



    This is the drivers side and has one outlet.

    Do the connect at the back of the intake with some piece that is missing; or go completely different ways/connections?

    that is your oem pcv. Do yourself a favor while you got it apart and do the LS6 VCT mod. You had a serious vacuum leak and that was effecting how your car was running to. Any oil leaks, now you know where they are coming from.

    Found your sticky on the differences, I can't afford the mod, or catch can at the moment. So I just need to fix what is broke at the moment.

    Actually it is cheaper then replacing the OEM PCV. Almost by 1/2. The OEM PCV goes for about $80 -$130. The LS6 VCT goes for about $55-$80. The only other thing you'd need would be Knock Sensors and that is if you needed to replace them; only on the >98 would I say you have to do the upgrade to a 99< KS & WH.

    I understand you only having enough to just fix it, but look at it this way. You are fixing it as well as doing it cheaper. The OEM PCV will go bad again and if you do the quick fix like I did in this thread post #20.

    That was a quick fix that will work over time but is not meant as a permeate solution.


    How bad does the cylinder look?

    I don't even have forty left to my name. I have plenty of free hose and fittings, and other odds and ends. Would just have to buy the pcv thing itself. After tearing off the heads and intake, I'm thinking a fresh rebuild is in order. My boyfriend plans on putting this all back together tonight. None of the stickys showed an "after" pic of the pcv hoses and stuff. Well it did, but with it all on car, hard to make out.

    Clogged, and oily. Basically nasty. I cannot even touch either hoses anywhere without getting black on me.

    i replaced my oem pcv system pretty recently... if i remember correctly you have to buy the whole assembly as one "unit", which is the valve, and the tubing attached. the way it attaches to the engine is:

    grommet goes into rear of drivers-side valve cover.
    the tubing then splits into two, as it travels (from right-to-left as you face the engine bay) behind the intake manifold, ...
    one spilt end goes into the passenger-side valve cover, ...
    the other end continues (rear-to-front) along the valve cover (passenger-side), goes through the pcv valve then into the throttle body.
    then the final piece is a speparate hose: comes out of the front of the passenger-side valve cover and goes into throttle body. (i don't think this hose is included w/ the pcv assembly)

    correct



    Jodi, after you get it all together, get some simple green and in another bottle do a 50/50 mix. soak on the engine for 10-15 mins. use a soft brush or rags and wipe what you can. Then rinse using a garden hose on low pressure. It will knock off a lot of the grease and oil. Some have even use a hair dryer or (I'm not joking on this one) used a leaf blower to dry off the engine.

    Most important thing to remember is not to use it the hose on high pressure or even a pressure washer.

    Ok. So clean it and put it all back? Those two hoses will reconnect after I clean them?

    My hair dryer gets more use out of stuff than actual using it on my hair. Lol
