1 Answer


Yes, the 1998 Altima has a PVC valve, located on the passenger side of the motor behine the coolent sensor, coolent sensor has to be removed to get at PVC valve, still it's a bear to remove and replace, needs needle nose pliers and and bent piece of coat hanger, can't get ypur fingers on it ,only tools. about the worst place for a component that should be serviced from time to time.
