Positive Crankcase Ventilation

Anyone know the details of the m42 (318is) motor's PCV system? I just wanna make sure all the parts are there for it on my car. All I see is the vent hose running to ported vacuum. I don't see any check balls or PCV valve or anything. Very old school style system, even for a '91. Starmavin, any input on this?

Yea, I can see how looking at that can cause confusion but it's really just a tube, no spring valve needed. I grew up old school as well. My first car was a 68 plymouth furry III my first performance car is a 68 firebird convt (currently being restored).

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
