Hi!

Can anyone explain (preferably with pictures) where the PCV is located, and also the location of the two air-breather grommets that should be replaced in the same time (Fierostore part #66282.
Something special to do/think of when replacing those things?

Thanks in advance...

*edit* Maybe I should mention that I have a Fiero 2.8 V6 ...

The PCV valve is located in the grommet of the trunk side valve cover. To the right of the oil filler cap. Grab the line that goes into it, wiggle and twist it while pulling. The front grommet can be located by reaching around the front of the engine and running your hand along the top surface of the valve cover. You should encounter a metal pipe that's inserted into it. That pipe makes several bends and the other end inserts into the air intake snorkle, just in front of the throttle body. This one is a little more difficult to replace because of restricted access, and because the tube that inserts into it is bolted to the engine about midway, making it difficult to maneuver. The grommets usually don't go bad.

When I re-did my top end I did not get new grommets. As said above, they tend to be one of the only things that don't seem to go bad. If there's physical damage then yes you can replace them. If you absolutely feel the need to replace the grommets, then you can grasp a portion of them with pliers, wiggle it back and forth while pulling, and they'll come out.

There's a bolt on the "front" part of the engine that holds the "front" PCV tube. If you loosen it you can wiggle out the tube easier. It can help to remove the air intake tube since this is what the other side of the tube attaches to.
