Failed 2.0t TSI PCV ValveHappy Tuesday everyone. Today we are back talking about failed VW parts. This time we are looking at the failure of the 2.0t TSI Positive Crankcase Vent Valve, or PCV. This is a part that can cause some crazy things to happen. PCV used to be a simple little valve that was replaced at maintenance intervals. Now it is a complex assembly.
