How to replace a PCV valve

A bad PCV valve can be one possible cause of oil leak. On a 2005 2.4L PT Cruiser, Chrysler recommends that PCV valve should be inspected after 60,000 miles and after 90,000 miles of driving. As it is inexpensive and easy to remove, I suggest you to replace it at one of these intervals.

What you need to replace a PCV valve on a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser:

 

A new PCV Valve:
Mopar 4777240AD PCV Valve
Or
FRAM FV405 PCV Valve
Or
Omix-Ada 17404.11 PCV Valve
A 24mm Wrench

In the next picture, you can see the valve location:
