Does anyone know what size the O-ring is on the PCV valve for a 2006 9-3 B207R? How many MM? The PCV valve (12797658) has been discontinued for years, so I was thinking I could just clean it and the little screen inside it with some carb cleaner and then put a new O-ring on. Hope to do this when I take the throttle body off and clean that too, but won't get to it until next month. Thanks.

That's a different part #. I believe that's for the B207L engine. Do you think that's okay to use on the B207R engine?

I can't see why it would matter. Worst comes to worst you buy it and steal the o-ring.

You have a 2005 with the B207R engine, right? You used this PCV valve without any problems? If it worked for you, then it should work for me. Thanks!

I wonder what the difference is.

Hey, Hus_sho, you out there? I'd like to hear your opinion. Can a PCV valve from a B207L be used in a B207R? Thanks.

I'm getting confused. Are you guys in disagreement? Original question was what size o-ring I would need so existing PCV Valve could be reused with new o-ring since the PCV Valve (12797658) is discontinued. Then it was suggested PCV Valve (12786376) from B207L might be able to be used and if not, at least the o-ring could be used. Then Orio emailed that PVC Valve (55557180) from 2007-2011 could be used in place of 12797658. Rock Auto has STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS V480 {#12786376, 55557180, V559} Intermotor PCV Valve showing interchangeable part numbers, which would mean 2007-2011 PCV Valve should work on B207R 2003-2006. Thanks.

B207R takes only B207R from which model year doesnt make difference, the other B207 can take either original or B207R.
so u need either 55557180/12797658 .. the one diggs listed is good for u

If going to the trouble of removing the manifold, etc. to replace the o-ring - I'd replace the valve. They are plastic and clog and don't last forever. Based on Hus_sho's excellent video and advice I replaced mine - it's not that difficult.

RockAuto doesn't always have the V480 valve in-stock (they only have 4 now) and it's been discontinued for some time. It's $10 (I know plus ridiculous shipping charges...)

Sorry. to elaborate. im guessing they show different part numbers for 2007+ is because many things changed and they probably specd a new part then. $5 says they are all the same. why would crankcase pressure be different enough between motors to require a different part? i dont think they are thus i think you can use either.

Thank you, everyone, for your incredible knowledge and advice. I did get one from RockAuto. It was Hus_sho's video that convinced me I needed to replace mine.

And for the record, the PCV valve made by STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS V480 can be found at several places if you do an internet search for it - Amazon, CARid.com and www.oreillyauto.com. I think the Saturn Ion by GM uses it too, so there's probably a GM part # for it.

Also, Orio said part # 55557180 was still available, so if you care about OEM, it will probably be back in stock at familiar places like Esaabparts or Eeuroparts and theSaabsite.
