WHERE'S MY PCV VALVE?

I'm wanting to replace it and need to know where to find it. the truck is a '99 Ranger xlt with the 2.5L engine. also, what is the hose right next to the engine oil fill cap that connects to the air box hose? mine is showing some age and i'm wanting to replace it too.

Which is then bolted to the engine here:

And this hose is just a crank case vent:

My 96 engine actually didn't have this. The tube on the throttle body was actually plugged off.

Also, ford is suppose to replace it for free at 60k miles. But my stupid, ghey *** ****ty Ford dealer refuses to do it. Even when the letter they sent me says they will replace it for free. mother****in' *******s.

First of all, thank you so much with the pictures of the pcv valve. They were very helpful, i always do better if i have a picture to go by. You can tell me a hundred times and i won't get it, but show me a picture, and i'll get it. anyway, the truck has 146,xxx miles on it, and i just bought it last week. I was cleaning the motor off the other day, and noticed this hose(crank case vent) had alot of cracks in it from age. Would an auto parts store have it? how much would it be?

No problem. I have a motor torn apart for a turbo build, so i think it'd be easist to tell where its at.

Auto parts store or Ford should have that little hose. Not sure on the cost, but i can't imagine it being too much.

i wonder if i could just buy like a spool of it, and cut what i needed. as long as its the right diameter, wouldn't that work? is there anything special about that hose, or is it just a regular black hose?

Should be fine with that. My service manual just says its a crank case vent, so i can't imagine its anything speical. Just get the right size fuel/oil line from the hardware store. Looks like a 3/8 hose, but measure it to make sure.

Sounds like the same issue I made. First work I ever did on my truck. My mech was doing my oil change and he was like "this hose is bad."

Go up to autozone and get 5/8 hose. Like a foot. Mine was goodyear hose but they don't carry goodyear anymore.

I had to cut my old one off, make sure not to butcher it though, you need it for measurements. Spray some silicone on the the metal connector that goes to the manifold. it gets corroded.

cut the new hose to the same length as the old one.

I had to do that hose twice cause I cut the first too short.

thanks for the help guys. i changed the pcv valve out earlier today. got it at autozone for $1.99, cant beat that! luckily i have small arms so it was fairly easy to maneuver around the intake manifold to get underneith it. i would think a bigger man might have some issues with it. oh well, all is good with it now! so the crankcase vent hose is a 5/8 ?
