    well, you got the wrong one as the D9ZZ-6A666-A fits 2001 back.
    2002 up Mustangs use a 1/4 turn/twist-in one and the part # for the "pre-heated" PCV valve is 2C5Z-6A666-AA or for a Non-heated one its 2X4Z-6A666-AA

    oh and the rightside is the passenger side of the car

    ok thanks!

    you would think that if one went to a ford dealers parts counter and asked for a PCV valve for a mustang GT..they would give you the right part... Apparently ford dont know there cars parts. Randy? can u get me one?

    i know you from Mustangboards.com

    aftermarket ones are not made to Ford spec's and can have a larger orifice which draws more vapor's and clogges-up the IAC and fills the lower intake wth a oily mess



    p.s. ST your PCV valve is here, give me a call when you can

    well, heat :rlaugh:

    somewhere along the lines the Wiz Kids in Dearborn had a problem wth PCV valves frezzing-up in cold climates and thought the whole counrty needed to have pre-heated PCV valves, total BS if you ask me

    I figured it would be heat, just didn't know what the need for heated would be. I grew up in Michigan and still have family there, never heard of a PCV freezing up.

    This is probably a rhetorical question, but why, when I ask the local ford parts guy for a pcv valve for a 2002 Mustang GT, does he give me PN D9ZZ-6A666-A?
