    I swapped out the PCV valve this weekend as part of regular maintenance. Since they frequently don't list parts for Continentals I thought I'd put part numbers here for others.

    PCV valve: PCV1201DL
    This seems to be an AutoZone-only part number. It's a metal valve and seems to be built as well or better than OEM. For $3 it's a no-brainer.

    PCV gasket: Dorman "Help!" part number 42049
    You can find this at any of the usual auto parts stores, also for $3.

    The whole thing didn't take 2 minutes. The old stock gasket was very loose; the PCV could fall out of the opening with the slightest touch. Our cars aren't getting any younger so splurge on the $6 when you have the chance :D

      Thanks for the info. I am about to tackle a lot of stuff to my Continental, it's at almost 100k miles.

      How hard is it to find this on my 98? Basically, where is this exactly located if I may ask:)

      It should be located on one of the valve covers. It will have a rubber hose connected to it.

      It's on the valve cover closest to the firewall, on the driver's side. It's sticking out - you can't miss it.

      FWIW we don't have a "true" PCV. These cars use a "calibrated orifice" that you can just clean with parts cleaner if you want. I figured for a few bucks it wouldn't hurt to go new, esp. since it needed a gasket at the same time. Now it's good for another decade.

      Mine has small cracks in it. Definitely going to pick this up soon.
