    I was going to change my PCV valve on my 94 Civic 5-speed, but no-one
    carries them. Is this a dealer-only part? It's only $15 retail per
    majestic honda, so I might just drive down there and get it. However,
    I was looking at it and I can't figure out how the grommet comes off
    after you pull the vavle out. Should it stay in the engine or should I
    replace it? Haynes doesn't say anything about it. Any info?? Thanks!!

    Autozone's web site says they sell a Beck/Arnley PCV valve for a 1994 Civic for

    The last one I bought was at a dealer's for about $20. (I will try Autozone's or
    Majestic's next time.)

    I changed my 1991 Civic's PCV valve last spring but don't remember difficulty
    with a grommet. I just bought the new valve, removed the old one, saw it was
    identical (except for age) to the new one, and installed the new one.

    I do see the drawings at Majestic for the two valves (91 and 94) are a little

    IIRC mine comes off with a 17 mm wrench. The first time I needed a tall socket
    and I think a ratchet wrench with a U-joint, because it was on pretty tight. Now
    I just use a crescent.

    No, mine pops off with my fingers, but there is a grommet it pops
    into. Should/Can that be replaced is the question I really needed to
    know. Thanks!

    http://www.honda.co.uk/owner/CivicManual/pdf/11-109.pdf indicates for a 1995
    Civic that, yes, the grommet can fail and may need replacement. It describes
    (the usual) check for PCV valve/grommet correct operation.
