I got an oil & filter change today, along with the air filter, and
since I have a new (non-OEM) PCV valve on hand, I decided to check the
existing one. It *looks* pretty new, but I'm not sure it always clicks
when I squeeze the breather hose. The engine makes enough noise to make
me uncertain. The idle does drop every time I squeeze that hose, though.
Any idea if this proves the valve is ok or not?
141k miles. This one was *probably* installed at 94k miles, although
it looks newer than that. So what's worse, a sticky OEM valve (if this
is - it's blue) or a properly functioning aftermarket cheapo valve? Can
I test the new valve before installing it? I can get OEM, but not right
