Default Third 323 Gtx Turbo Pvc valve broken, Whats up with that?

My Pvc valve just borke again...
My third 323 gtx turbo one now..
Could my crankcase be pressurized from bad rings?

I bought one 323 Gtx pcv valve from Oreillys only to find that the OEM one sealed much better than it. Took it back today and managed to get hit in the parking lot.

Go buy one from Mazda. (or people will back into you) Aftermarket Pcv valves are notorious for being crap.

d'oh, I got my 323gtx PCV from one of those online parts superstores..haven't put it on yet.
Oh well, guess I will see if the stealership has one. Something told me that the online part was generic anyway, probably the same PCV they would have sold me for a miata.

There are some that say that the GTX part number is the same but the part is not always the same. Some people feel that sometimes you get a GTX part other times you get a Miata/Protege Pcv


www.mazdastuff.com try them

Quick Question.
I called my friend to buy me a pvc valve becuase I have no money. And he said they ran out of the gtx ones so he just got a regular miata one.
Wow, this one doesnt look like its ognna break like the other one. Will i be fine with this one for now?

it'll work fine for now, you'll just once again run the risk of destroying it. but then again the reason you replace it, just like a 1.6 diff, is because there is a risk of it being damaged, not because its guaranteed.

You should take it back anyways because you got it from autozone and not the dealer. Buy one from the dealer.
