Pcv valve

My car has 145000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

In your application, the PCV valve is at the back of the engine on the passenger side. You will see two hoses connected to it, on both the right and left side of the intake plenum. During a mobile visit, a technician from YourMechanic can replace the PCV valve (https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/positive-crankcase-ventilation-pcv-valve-replacement) for you and also inspect your vehicle for other maintenance needs such as an oil and filter change.
