    PCV Valve - Where Is It Located?

    Hello.

    I am trying to locate the PCV valve on my Chevy Cruze. It is the 1.4L turbo engine. Could someone help me locate this? Thanks.

    Did you ever find the Cruze PCV valve? I "think" is in the flex tube that runs from the center of the intake manifold casting to the input casting of the turbo. It doesn't seem to be replacable by itself, and may require the replacement of the entire tube.

    It looks like according to GMPArtsDirect, the Valve and the hose are one unit and costs $50. But they do not describe where it is.

    According to my 2011 Helms manual the crankcase ventilation pipe runs between the turbo and the camshaft cover. The PCV orifice itself is an integrel part of the camshaft cover.

    I cant seem to find the hose from turbo to camshaft cover. This is for the 1.4T right.

    Here you are. Open hood, look to the left most part of the top of the engine. You'll see a ribbed tube that has tape on it that secures a smaller tube. That is the PCV pipe and the charge air bypass pipe (which goes to the BPV/BOV)

    Somehow I thought it was integrated into the valve (cam) cover. Somebody posted a thread about a pressurized valve cover that was leaking oil and the warranty fix was a new valve cover, not a separate PCV valve.

    That might have been me as I had a hairline crack in my cam cover which caused an oil leak. They replaced the cover only which sloved the problem. The PCV valve (tube) is as as shown in titan2782's diagram and was not replaced.

    Confirmed last night that there is a check valve in the PCV tube. It's located on the end of the tube that connects to the turbo inlet. I can blow from the valve cover side out but not from the turbo side out.

    Not sure if there is still another valve in the valve cover at this point.
