rubber gasket in the intake manifold


Asked by Sep 11, 2015 at 11:29 PM about the 1971 Pontiac Le Mans

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, I own a 1971 PontiacLemans 350 engine. Recently while working on the engine I inadvertently pushed the rubber grommet that holds the pcv  valve into the intake manifold. Kind of new at this thing and I am wondering if the grommet will have to be removed or will it not be a problem lodged in the intake,whats the best solution?

If you can get it out with, maybe, a pair of needle nosed pliers that'd be the best thing. You may also be able to get it with a wire clothes hanger. But otherwise it'll be sitting on the valley gasket just under the intake and will do no harm. The PCV valve doesn't plug into the actual intake msnifold. will most likely have a new one. We can get them at NAPA so I'm sure your local auto parts store can get it as well. HTH. -Jim
