Hello,

The black plastic PCV valve shown in the illustration in the previous thread is correct. It does not include a "traditional" PCV valve like on older American cars that's usually aluminum with an internal ball valve that you can hear when you shake it. The Mazda PCV (it's actually a Ford part) is correct as shown with three hose connections. On '00 - '01 models it is located at the junction of hoses of various diameters just under the throttle body. There is no reason to remove the intake manifold! You can locate and replace it by removing the battery and reaching under the air intake hose. I'm sure it's covered in grime so it may not be easy to spot. It's cheap ($6.00) and is available at parts chains.

Since you removed the manifold, you should replace the upper manifold gaskets as they are prone to fail on '00-'01 MPVs. Fel-Pro makes an upper / lower gasket set that's only about $20. Don't mess with the lower gaskets that are located under the throttle body.

You may have upset the IMRC shutter valve cable on the intake manifold which is why you're now having problems with the throttle.

Take a few digital photos of the problem area and post them here and we'll try to help you through it.

Good luck,

Steve

You should check your VIN first.

VIN(Last 6-Digit): 001017~108917 With PCV
VIN: 108917~ Without PCV, ONLY HOSE!

Workshop Manual misguided me, I bought a Fram PCV and installed it 6 months ago. It's wrong.
The last 2.5 engine with PCV was produced Oct.17,2000, then 2.5 engine removed PCV.

That is interesting info. I wonder if it's true for all markets? NA? California?

Definitely something to be aware of.

My VIN falls in the "without PCV" range, but I know for a fact that the production date of the van is actually 1999.

From website Japancars.ru, above-mentioned info is ONLY for the VIN with LW19

From my workshop manual in Chinese(which are directly translated from English), the VIN with LW19 is for Europe and UK, LW28 for N.A. and LW10 for AU

Chinese market is LW19 too
