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
