OK. I work on my cars as much as I can and I'm not a complete idiot. I've replaced clutches, brakes, timing belts, water pumps, radiators, etc, etc. My 2003 Elantra has 65,000 miles on it and a few years ago I tried to replace the PCV valve with no luck. The PCV valve is threaded into a copper/metal ring that is pressure fitted into the valve cover. When I tried to remove the PCV valve the copper/metal ring spun thus not allowing me to unscrew the PCV valve out of the copper/metal ring. Now when I try to unscrew the PCV valve the copper/metal ring spins in the plastic. I can't get the PCV valve out to replace it.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks to fix this?

Thanks.

Hey there "burken" and "gadgetadam";

Could you guys post some digital pictures of your PCV valve/hose assembly.
A quick look at the HMAWebTech seems to be easy to remove.

"burken"; to the Forum.

"gadgetadam", your OP is dated 2007, did you get any help in removing it?

I have a 2003 elantra and just last week my mechanic pulled the copper piece out, put the new pcv valve in it and JB Welded back into the casing on the valve cover. Didn't have $210 to get a new valve cover from Dealer!!

I've just run into the same issue, only I have to take the blame, I tried to wrench the valve off and I broke the metal piece free. Now it just spins. seems like poor engineering to me. Maybe the metal bit should have had splines? Or maybe it should have flat sides so it can be gripped? I tried holding the metal collar in place with a flat head screwdriver, but it just strips away the metal.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but this seems like a common issue. Anyone have any tips on the PVC valve replacement when the fitting it screws into also spins? I tried to replace mine and this also happened. I really want to avoid removing the valve cover.

Sounds like it needs pulled out and the jb weld back in is the fix.

2005 Elantra.
I too tried to take the PVC valve out and ended up sheering it off. Very poor design imho unless Hyundai never intended it to be replaced.
I took the valve cover off (not a difficult task) and then drilled out the old PVC valve (it is relatively soft so was quite easy to do without damaging the threads.
Chose a drill that was just a bit smaller than the hole that the PVC screws into so that the threads don't get damaged. At some point the metal from the PVC valve stem is so thin that it is easy to separate from the threads and pull out.

It was then easy to put in the new PVC valve.

If you don't take the valve cover off it is next to impossible to get at it.

Thanks, Rkattek.

Guess I'll pull off the valve cover and see what I can do. At least it's easy on this car.
