PCV Valve ?

I am curious if anyone has changed their PCV valve. I found the part 17130-RTW-A01 but it doesn’t look like a conventional PCV valve compared to other cars. Do you guys change it as part of your maintenance schedule ?

Yes, that's the correct part#, but I've never had cause to replace it. I figure, it either works or it doesn't--if you idle the engine and pinch the hose, and the valve clicks, it's good. Or am I missing something? I'm good at that--missing things.

Thanks for the tip. I think I will just wait until it fails. If it ain’t break, don’t fix lol my car only has 24k miles and I am worrying too much haha

Nvm, I found the part you mentioned... it’s on the throttle body. Ouch, good thing it’s not that expensive. 😄

Yeah, it's still young at 24k, but the only things maintenance wise that I do, is to change the CVT fluid often (about 20,000 to 30,000 miles,) and the 6-Speed's trans oil at 40,000 to 50,000 miles.) I start thinking about changing the engine oil/filter when the maintenance minder reads 20% or less. I might add in there, changing coolant and brake fluid every 2-3 years. It's a Honda, so not much else to do, other than to clean it inside and out weekly and let that PWP shine!

I also want to add changing the Wiper blades and both air filters annually is a good idea.

Doesn't the Minder tell you when to change CVT fluid? I changed it early with the filter you all told me about at 50K. I just had the Coolant changed at 57K.

While we are talking about Maintenance how many clicks do you have to pull up your parking brake before the car will not move? Dealer told me 5 to 8 is within specifications.

I literally got the car 2 months ago. It’s a certified preowned. I decided to start the maintenance schedule myself. I changed engine oil, CVT fluid, and brake fluid. I got a little worried when my CVT got stuck in first gear starting from an auto stop up hill. I have seen a few threads that some people have the same problem. It only happened to me once and I become more gentle with the CVT now. The CVT is a lot smoother after fluid change.

Here’s what I am talking about in case anyone is interested:

I am curious if the minder tells to you change the CVT fluid too. I just changed mine too.
