2013 3.5L PCV Valve?

Recommended Posts

Does the 2013 Edge with 3.5l have a pcv valve? I purchased one from Rockauto when I ordered a few other things and now I can't seem to find a PCV vale on my Edge. I also do not find it referenced in the Owner's Manual. Can anyone tell me for certain if there is one, and if so, where it is?

Yes there is. On the valve cover near the firewall, towards the pass side. You will need to remove the intake manifold to get to it, it is a bit of an awkward arrangement to get to on the 2011+.

 

Macbwt has shown it on his YT channel, IIRC.

Another great Ford design - remove the intake manifold to do simple maintenance.

Thanks for the video, but I still do not see where it is located.. Looking in the engine compartment I can't find it either. I though my Sport Trac PCV was in a bad location, but I can't even find the Edge one..

Without taking off the intake manifold you will be hard pressed to see it. But if you take a strong light and shine it in from the pass fender side under the manifold, you can see exactly where it is.

If you're going to change the PCV think about doing the plugs at the same time. It may seem like a waste if you're at the halfway point in their lives, but it will give you a start point of 90,000 miles before they need to be done again. The intake manifold is a PITA to remove. If you do, be sure to have gaskets on hand. (Also some Band-Aids)

Old thread but for those searching like I was. I was able to change the pcv on a 2012 without removing intake. Had already done the plugs and reassembled which really isn't a big deal. Just lots of things to unplug, move around etc. Anyways a week later I realized I forgot to do the pcv.  Oh well. I only had to remove the plastic cover that goes around the oil filler and has one twist screw and a push anchor.  After this is off you can see the pcv on back side of engine just past the first plug/coil pack from passenger side. The toughest part was getting the spring clamp off / up so I could get the hose off. After that I used a small pair of pliers to twist out the pcv and the new one in. Spins out easily when you grip on the flats of the pcv.  Getting hose back on took a few minutes again because of the clamp. In hindsight, I should have just removed the hose up top where easily accessible and just twisted the pcv out while still in hose and reassembled the same way.  I feel sure it will twist out of engine and spin inside of the hose with clamp still engaged.  I'll find out next week when I do the explorer, also a 2012.
