    I keep hearing about the PCV problem but so far I've not had it with mine. I just crossed 100k and am wondering if I should go ahead and do the fix before it happens and causes other problems like the main seal sucking in. For the mechanics out there whats your opinion? Should I do this as a PM item or just wait? I've seen others that report 200K and have not had the issue.

    I spent like $148 on a coil pack plus I had to end up buying new tools to my collection and replaced it my self. "F" the dealer when ever possible... even though I have been real lazy lately

    It's very possible that, like the seals, they were quoting the price of materials only, which would have been fine, but they did not make that clear to me at the time.

    At any rate, what's done is done, and I shall get along with my life... My kit showed up, and I need a day and some dry weather to install it.

    My kit came in the mail today, but I had a new manifold put in under warranty literally 2 days ago. I'd kind of like to ride it out until the valve fails again, hopefully non-catastrophically, before putting in the work myself to remove and fix kit the manifold. You got me thinking that spark plug replacement might be a worthwhile investment too. I haven't inspected mine yet, but I'm at 67k miles and just had to replace manifold & PCV hose a week after buying the car due to leaks.

    Question though: where exactly does the PCV nipple go when it fails and falls off?
