    if it doesn't rattle then replace it, if you can blow both ways thru it, replace it, if you don't know.......then replace it, its cheap.

    Start motor, remove the oil fill cap and put a piece of paper on the fill hole and see if it suck or blows off.
    If it is sucked then it is good.

    It's probably a good idea to not let go of the paper while doing this test. :D

    The best symptom seems to be that the grommet underneath it is hardening to the point it will be a bear to get out - the part is cheap ;)

    If anyone needs a PCV valve hose (sticks on the top of the PCV valve) for whatever reason, send me a PM... I ordered one by mistake, I needed the other "thicker" one on the other side of the valve cover... but the damn parts guy sent me exactly what I asked for, not what I actually needed. Anyway I swapped PCV hoses for the heck of it, but the old one is totally fine let me know if anyone wants it.
