Like the title says.

Here is a pic.



Not my engine. I found that pic on Wikipedia, I just added the circle and arrow.

When the car is on it makes a buzzing sound. When I apply pressure (press down on it with my hand) it stops. When I let go it comes back.

Is this normal?

The car runs great it's just that the buzzing sound doesn't seem normal to me.

Yup, that's the PCV valve. And BTW, it's supposed to buzz while the engine is running. The buzzing noise is caused by the valve opening and closing rapidly.

Gald to hear that is normal. I'll be replacing the old worn out rubber this weekend.

Always go trojan.
