2nd Generation PCV Hose (Positive Crankcase Ventilation)

1989 Camry 4cyl

I am having a hard time locating the PCV hose. Haynes 1983-1991 show's a bad illustration. I want to clean it with Seafoam. Could someone take a picture of the PCV hose location.

Please help....

There is a black hose that comes out of the valve cover just above the distributor (near the last letter "E" in "16 VALVE" logo) headed towards the throttle body. That's your PCV hose.

You might have to replace the PCV grommet while your at it.

My gromment on the PCV valve was hard like a rock from age, so when I tried to pull it out, I shattered it and of course like any hard plastic, it was unusable after it broke. I went to toyota to buy myself a hose, PCV valve, and the rubber gromment. Ran $31.75.

^ No PCV valve on a 3S-FE, just a hose from valve cover to throttle body. 2VZ-FE has a PCV valve though.

There is no PCV grommet nor PCV valve on a gen2 (87-91) 3S-FE engine. It's just a hose that goes from the valve cover to the throttle body.

Thanks, I found the PCV hose. Seafoam is a great product. All that carbon blew out my exhaust and pouring it into my gas tank helped too.

I have noticed the engine runs smoother and good pick-up.

Thanks again guys

Heh, improvements from the 2S-E.

I wish I didn't have to deal with the worry of cracked plastic gromments under the valve cover.

I have a 1989 Camry V6. Found the PCV Valve & tried to remove it. The Valve busted while trying to get it out. Took forever to finally get it out (ended up using a small tap set to screw into the bottom of the PCV valve which widened the hole at the base of the valve). I was then able to get two clothes hangar wires into the hole with the lips facing opposite directions. Pulled up with great force and it popped out.

My problem now: How to get the new PCV Valve back in without breaking it. I've replaced PCV Valves in other cars where they just pop in and out, however this bugger seems to be extremely tight.

Is there a trick to get the new PCV valve back in?

Thanks for any help.

Hey do you guys know where I can get another pcv hose for my 2.0 ?
The dealer wants 22+ dollars for a new one, will a automotive standard rubber hose work just aswell as a replacement ?
