I have a 95 supercharged Riv and I am trying to find the pcv valve, it sure isn't in the normal places and they don't make a Haynes Manuel for these cars, anyone have any theories? Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure you'll find it beneath a bolted cover at the rear of the intake manifold - I'm just not sure which side... My '97 is on the driver's side.

And as everyone on here will tell you, you'll need the Factory Service Manual (FSM) if you intend to keep this car and work on it yourself... eBay to the rescue!

Oh it isn't to bad I have already done all kinds of stuff with it and I did find the pcv if it would have been a snake I would be dead now, the cover for it is on top of the supercharger under a plate with a big spring on it, mine still had the factory one installed, most things you can carry over from the la Sabre or even the regal with the super 3.8, so it isn't to bad. I want to thank you for the come back I really appreciate it, The only thing that I have had trouble with is when I got done doing the timing chain and cover I had the devilish time trying to fig out the belt routine.

After I found it and I took it out it did rattle not as good as the new one though but I replaced it anyway, I had a very bad oil leak on the front timing chain cover and I wanted to make sure it wasn't because of to much pressure building up in the crank case but I guess it was because it sat for so long not getting run.

Check out the following video about a TSB for the 95 PCV .... any merit to what this fellow recommends?

Why would you want to cap that? That would remove PCV operation. Where is the crank case pressure supposed to go?

Agreed, I have no idea. I was just Googling for the location of the 1995 Riviera PCV valve and.... quiet


BTW, do we maintain a thread here with all TSBs and recalls for each year?
