Ford Contour PCV Valve replacement

Unread post by BroKnux » Tue May 10, 2016 5:23 pm

OK, I own a 1998 ford contour 4-cylinder. That I have to replace the
PCV valve. This is not an easy part to change on this vehicle.
It is located up front next to the Exhaust Manifold. However, there is an Exhaust Manifold Cover in the way. The Problem is that the bolts are siezed.
What I want to know is, do I need the cover? Can I torch or cut it off and won't have any problems?
