I am trying to change the pcv valve on a 2004 f-150, 5.4 V8.

Customer Question

I am trying to change the pcv valve on a 2004 f-150, 5.4 V8. The chiltons manual says it is in a certain location, but when I pull that apart, and compare it to the part I picked up, it is not the same? Anyplace to find a better diagram that shows me where this is at?

I see the same thing in the Chilton's manual, but when I disconnect the hose (2), and take the fasteners off (3), then the piece (4) comes out of the opening (5), but where does the valve go? I don't see where the current valve is located at? When I take out piece (4), there isn't anything on there that removes or twists off?

According to the ford diagrams its twisted into the valve cover.

I see where that piece is at on the engine, but that doesn't budge at all. It doesn't appear that there is any seam, or that it is designed to be removed.

 

I called a local Ford dealer and spoke to their head parts guy, and he said it is part of the valve cover and not intended to be replaced, so I think the manuals are wrong.
