View Full Version : PCV Vacuum Leak

I was chasing a vacuum leak in my 2001 GT and found a major one at the PCV elbow. Not having the time to order the correct part, I headed to my local Autozone where I was able to find something that worked.

I bought the PCV valve listed for the car (AZ part # PCV1125DL) and from the Help section a Chrysler PVC Elbow (Help part # 47029)

The fit was tight but it works like a charm! One end fit the AZ PCV valve and the other fit the stock plastic vacuum tube. I imagine others may have the same issue and wanted to give the community an option likely found at your local parts store.

how did you determine that it was leaking? did you spray it down? my elbow cracked when i replaced the PCV valve earlier in the week

also is it this for the elbow? http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Dorman-PCV-Valve-Elbow/_/N-8gd5c?itemIdentifier=439269_0_0_ which end went on the PCV valve?

I also went to Autozone and grabbed the same thing. My elbow cracked when I was replacing my PCV valve. Good info for others.
