Easy stuff, good to change every 15k. For 5 bucks why not! Don't be those cheap guys who try to clean & re-use a pcv valve plz.

Why would you replace the valve at 15k? They don't have issues but I suppose if that's want you want to do go ahead and do it.

Wait? Why wouldn't you for $5 bucks? When was the last time you changed yours?

If you have never changed it & came in here to leave an ignorant comment of not replacing a pcv with no data or previous experience then go away or don't comment at all.

I don't believe you understand the importance of a free flowing pcv. This is my 3rd turbocharged vehicle, I think I know, especially when 2 of them are over 100k miles :) but then again who am I to spread informative & helpful information for turbocharged 1.6L GDI's.

Thanks for your video and info.

My Tucson has about 35k miles on it. It's a 2017 1.6T like yours. I haven't replaced this yet. I couldn't find in the owner's manual where it says to replace the PCV valve at any specific interval. Maybe I'm not seeing it.

https://www.cars.com/articles/when-should-you-replace-the-pcv-valve-1420680471182/

this is simplified for those who don't know the functionality & importance of a PCV valve
From the link you provided, "Though it’s not listed in the maintenance schedule in most vehicles, the PCV system should be inspected periodically to make sure it’s still in good condition, especially if engine performance has deteriorated".

I guess this answers why it is not listed in the owner's manual. Being that it's such an important part in what it does, it should be listed as a replacement part at a certain maintenance interval.

Don't believe everything you see on the net. They are quiet robust and will perform as they are designed for many many miles/kilometers. It's people that don't change their oil that have problems and engines that have done lots of miles. Yes turbo cars can suffer with high levels of blowby that lead to the valve gumming up but not at 15K.

With gamma direct injected vehicles such as ours I wouldn't go past 20k miles, especially when the valves cost only $5 bucks.

My reasoning for 15k mile change is due to seeing foul pcv valves from poor oil quality and oci's(uneducated/ignorant 1.6L Turbocharged owners). I'm simply playing it safe & providing preventative maintenance for those who want the best out of their engine.

A good interval for these would be 45k miles - same as the spark plugs. The plugs are right nearby the PCV and you have to take the top cover off so might as well do both spark plugs & PCV and call it a tune up. :)

Should be no difference other than manufacturer part numbers;
PCV495 - Intermotor (which is actually part of Standard Motor Inc. )
PCV266 - FRAM (FRAM is usually suggested by ASIAN manufactures.)
It may be possible that one on these manufacturers actually manufacture the Hyundai OEM PCV valve.

Sadly I waitied a little bit longer than i originally planned. @ 23k mi now, and plan to replace this and my spark plugs at the same time. Still trying to replace my dct transmission oil, but having 1 **** of a time trying to find exact picture of the fill port. The drawings apparently arent enough my mediocre automotive abilities.

For both my veloster and tucson i replaced oem trans fluid with this: MT-LV 70W/75W GL-4 Gear Oil

From what I hear our transmission fluid change isn't as easy as normal so I just went and took it to the dealership with that Redline MT-LV 70w75w GL-4 gear oil.
