Has anyone done a DIY on changing the PCV valve, fuel filter, or transmission filter? I've done a couple of searches and cannot find anything. Thanks!

The PCV valve bolts into the water passage, the large housinghi there,
i have been trying for awhile to find my pcv valve. I want to check it and possibly replace it, at 206,000km right now.
any help would be appreciated,
Here is the part detail. It bolts directly into that structure shown called the water passage. It's what the water pump attaches too...Hi all, just wondering if anybody knows where the pcv valve is located on this engine? They sell the part for it, so I assume there is one.
I don't have a problem with it, but after 100k. I think it needs changing.I just looked this up the other day and that diagram dosent look framiliar. Why do you want to know? Is there a problem with yours? All modern engines have a pcv valve. If it dident you would have a screw in dipstick and the engine would leak oil like crazy.
Yes it appears that way. The large water passage part probably doubles as an oil-separator that used to a separate can on the back of older Hondas. You can see the large #10 o-ring that installs between the backside and the block. That large passage probably serves as an oil drainback...Hm, I would have expected to see it on the valve cover, not the water pump housing. So that hole goes straight through to the crankcase?
Yes that's true. In fact all the fuel-injected Hondas still have a coolant port that runs straight from their thermostat housing to the throttle body for just that purpose.Not so long ago I changed a 1987 DX Accord's carburetor,(yes that late a few still had carbs), and the coolant was actually sent though some passages from the intake manifold <through> the carburetor and back out! I suspect it was intended to keep the carb from icing when it's humid and hovering around freezing. That was a new design for me!
