    Tell me again how I can get a factory PCV valve, if I should, and if getting it
    replaced at a quick lube place is not the best. I know they should be replaced
    often (I do them every year in the Fall but I think they are good for 2 or 3
    years). Roy,

    getting a pcv valve is easy. i just got one at autozone for about 3 bucks.
    and do not, i repeat do not get them replaced at a quick lube. one time
    they replaced mine and some guy who didnt know what he was doing broke the
    rubber elbow that connects the pcv valve. they didnt even tell me they
    broke it and all i heard was a loud whistling sound. i drove it back to
    them and they put tape around it. i finally fixed that by going to saturn
    and buying the rubber elbow with the pipe for about 5 bucks.

    I believe the OP asked about getting a factory pcv valve. Anyway I still have
    my original one in my car. They do tend to clog in winter. When it does I just
    take it out and clean it with carb. cleaner.
