Q: PCV Valve Location

asked by on

I know of the pcv valve on the oil funnel neck but a mechanic said there is a second one. I am just needing to know where it is.

My car has 147000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This engine has only one PCV valve and it is located in the oil fill tube. If you need help replacing PCV valve contact a mechanic like one from YourMechanic to perform any services you need.
