Re: PAIR Valve - why not just pull the 2 wire
Reading the service manual a little last night, I was wondering why you can't just pull the 2 pin connector going to the PAIR valve instead of using block off plates, silicone, make-shift filters, dealing with the hoses, etc.
The ECU sends a 12V signal to operate the reed type valve which allows the crankcase air to be re-entered into the fresh air inlets. One of the service checks on the PAIR Valve was to disconnect the electrical connector and verify no air passes from passage A to passage B. Air flow should only happen when 12V signal is present at valve.
So, can't you leave everything in and disable the valve (keeping it closed) by simply pulling the connector off?
I'm almost certain this is probably too good to be true, just wondering. Thanks
