  1. Smoking like crazy --> PCV, plugs, air filter

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    MY daughter's RR (08, v8, sc, 140K miles) suddenly started smoking like crazy, lost power completely and she just barely got it back home. At first she thought she had blown a head gasket. I pulled the plugs and they looked very fouled with oil, in particular the rear two (#7 and #8 were...
  2. Positive Crancase Ventilation (PCV) Valve Internals

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    What does the inside of a PCV valve for a 4.4L Jag engine look like, or supposed to look like? I bought a new one and installed it last night (because i have a P2096 post cat Bank 1 lean code - which I actually think is really coming from bank 2, and I have 187K miles on the engine) and on...

  11. PCV Valve Functionality

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Does the PCV Valve act as a filter keeping oil blow by from going into the intake system? I think on one of my older cars it was just a hose no valve.
  12. Replaced spark plugs and crankcase PCV vent valve

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello all, I just wanted to report back on my installation of new plugs and PCV valve this morning. On a level of difficulty, i'd say it's a 4 out of 10. I say that because you will need a good set of extensions and the ability to work in tight spaces for the driver side rear most spark plug...

  15. Hissing Sound from PCV Valve

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I am hearing a hissing sound from the PCV valve of my 06 SC. There was also a rubbery and oily gunk around where it's inserted. So i'm guessing there is a vacuum leak. I think the PCV is also a little wobbly. Is there a rubber seal or o-ring that I'm missing where the PCV goes into the valve cover?

  17. PCV Valve?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Can someone explain in simple terms what the PCV Valve does? I've read that if its all crudded up and blocked then that would cause oil consumption, but I've also read that if you go without it allows more oil droplets to run through which leads to burning oil. So I am quite confused... I ask...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I am in the process of replacing all the PCV components in my 2004 Range Rover. Last week's -1 degree F temperatures on Long Island resulted in, literally, an oil explosion in my engine bay. She ran fine for about ten miles, in the morning, until I left her idling for 10 minutes and then...

    Does the BMW PCV (part 11 61 7 508 541) fit the M62 Rangie? The local price difference is substantial.
