    How can you tell if you have the New Updated PCV kit installed?

    Hey guys,

    so my car is leaking oil from the valve cover on the driver's side. Looks like I will have to bring it in and replace the valve cover gaskets, but I also want to make sure I have the new PCV Hose kit installed, but I'm not sure how to tell. It does look like it from the pictures I have seen. any way to know for sure?

    Looks like the previous owner probably had leaking from the valve covers and installed the kit but did not replace the valve cover gaskets. That's my guess anyway.

    any help, much appreciated

    that is the new cover that comes with the pcv update. the older cover was much wider, if i remember correctly.

    Here is a crazy question but when I went to pep boys to buy a PVC valve they told me they have none listed for a 2004 CTS v6.???? Is this possible?

    you cant just buy a pcv valve for the cts...its a tube air system. so its gm only, and other than the new design for the 3.2l you wont have to replace it.
