    jiffy lube wanted me to replace my air filter and pcv valve. i stepped up and said not thanks, went to autostore and bought them myselfs and want to install them. time to learn. the air filter was the easiest thing ever, but I can not find the PCV value in my '99 tocama. any suggestion where to look? advise on installation?

    They are just held in with a rubber grommet. Just pull it out (may need a little twisting) and pop in the new one. Easier than an air filter.

    Did you notice a better fuel economy with new pcv valve?

    I just changed mine. Nothing noticeable but for a few bucks it was an easy sense of assurance to change out the hose, grommet, and valve.

    Just replaced pcv valve and grommet. The area around my grommet was fairly moist so I'm glad I spent the few bucks to set my mind at ease.
