This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Jeep Patriot SUV in checking or changing the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve in the 2.0 liter inline four cylinder motor.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and RAM vehicles such as the Compass, Renegade, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, 500, Town & Country, 200, 300, Pacifica, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster Van may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The replacement PCV valve with its part number is as follows: Mopar 0504 7063AA or Mopar 5047063AA.

The only tool you may need to replace the PCV valve is a pair of pliers or a wrench.

Spin Out Old PCV Valve
The first step is to open the hood.

If your Patriot is equipped with a plastic engine cover, gently pull off the cover and set it aside in a safe place.

I'm pointing to the PCV valve location in Picture # 2 at the top of the page.

The PCV valve is located at the front left corner of the engine.

Gently pull out the plastic tube from the rubber hose.

You might be able to loosen the old PCV valve by hand.

If not, use a pair of pliers or a wrench to loosen the old PCV valve in the counterclockwise direction.

Continue spinning out the old PCV valve in the counterclockwise direction until it can be removed.

Inspect Old PCV

Shake - Check For Rattle
Inspect the old PCV valve and shake it.

If the old valve makes a rattling noise, is it probably still good.

If the old valve does not make a rattling sound, it might be clogged or gummed up and needs to be either cleaned or replaced.
