    2008 Tundra PCV valve help!



    I have a 2008 Tundra SR5 5.7, I went to advance and ordered the pcv valve and when I picked it up today it threw me for a loop. The component I recieved said pcv valve on the box, but the part I got looked to be some sort of pressure switch. The guy at Advance said that is what the new vehicles are using. I am having a hard time believing that, but I can't prove it. So my question is 1. Where is the PCV Valve located, and 2. Does it have some sort of an electrical connection on it and no place to hook up any type of tube? Thanks Billy

    On the right front area of the 5.7L engine (when standing in front of the grill), a 'blowby-gas' tube goes from the oil separator case to the intake manifold. The pcv valve is located at the oil separator end of the tube. The location is documented in the factory service manuel page EG-256. Good luck.

    Bingo! I found the PVC on my 2007 Tundra 5.7L engine just where you the YouTube video showed it to be. Replaced it by pulling the hose off, putting on a deep socket, threading on the new one, tightening it, putting hoses and clamps back in position. Easy! Thanks!

    Nice video. We will be working on a 2008 Tundra as well right after we finished installing the new tires and rubicon express lift on the Wrangler project. We'll check and probably replace the pvc valve.
