Purchased a replacement pcv valve last night. Really didn't look at it too much but after I tried a 19mm socket and turn it out, my heart sunk when I heard a snap and the [email protected]#$% broke in 1/2. I had no idea it was plastic. I also cracked one of the coil pack connectors. Double [email protected]#$

After tried to get the remaining pieces out (it was hopeless even with a drill) I gave up and used a spare intake I had. In the process I swapped all the sensors and cleaned the K&N.

Car runs fine...at least until I get a replacement pack for the one I cracked.

Damn cheap [email protected]#$ pieces of crap. I wonder if anyone makes an all metal pcv valve?

I don't think I've seen a metal one.. maybe they all are plastic.

I was thinking that some of the OEM PCV valves have been all metal. But there have been defective OEM pcv valves too (see http://www.dodgeintrepid.net/showthread.php?t=169951) - I prefer the aftermarket ones because of that. Wow - it must've really been a piece-o-crap to break off like that. I'm sure you weren't turning it too hard (plenums have been known to crack from that too).
