This forum will come back... We are in the lull between people that buy new cars and the enthusiasts that can only afford used. I've seen it happen on car forums since there was car forums.

Speaking of used PCVs, I replaced mine last year. Swapped it for a catch can a few months ago. Going back to PCV for the winter. Should I buy a new one, or reuse the old one? Only a few months of use, but I already had to replace the rear main seal. Definitely want to avoid that again.

My understanding is swapping off cc in the winter defeats the purpose of owning a cc.

You can get a replacement gasket for the pcv though.

I read people swap them because of concern about water freezing and blocking the flow.

It does kind of defeat the purpose as more condensation occurs in winter than summer. If you empty the can often in winter it's not an issue at all. By often I mean every other day as it will fill up quickly.

Iíve been away from the GTI for over a week now driving a stupid rental Sonata thatís been flashing warning lights at me for the past 2 days. I miss my car so much, but still have to spend about another month away from it for work. Sad face

Bought my 2011 GTI 3 months ago, had 111,xxx on the clock. Original owner car and he replaced the timing chain, tensioner, gears, guides, all of it. Fast forward to the present and Iím changing EVERYTHiNG else... I had the PCV fail, then had 2 injectors get stuck WOT and discovered some Gnarly valves that were in need of some serious attention when I pulled the intake manifold to change the injectors. Aaand now Iím replacing the rear main seal and rear main flange, upgrading to the iAbed Industries CNCíd aluminum flange. Hoping I donít run into any more issues for a little while, but such is life. I love this little hatch more than any of my other VWs so Iíll have it for quite a while.

Worst part about it all is that Iím legally obligated to report to my place of employment within 30 minutes if Iím activated, so I need this hooker to be reliable for once.

Sounds like u got most of it behind u. I have 2013 with 104k miles all ur maintenance sounds like ur past it all. Only thing I've done that you haven't was fix a broken stud on my exhaust manifold driver side but I don't think that's common although if it breaks seems to always be driver side. You'll now because ur emission test on odb2 reader will go yellow and you might hear squeals under heavy acceleration.
