PCV solenoid recall

This all I could find on the recall but the symptoms seem to fit this recall. I don't know if any of these #'s are still available


#622

Date: May 1995

Subject: Emissions Recall #622 (#623 for California Vehicles)

Models: 1985 through 1988 Model Year Jeep CJ-7, Wrangler(YJ), J10 and Grand Wagoneer(SJ) equipped with a 4.2L engine.

Note: 1987 model year vehicles equipped with a 4.2L engine AND California emission control system are NOT included in the recall service since the PCV harness was replaced as a part of Recall #312T.

Reason for Recall:

Fuel vapors may cause deterioration of the PCV harness assembly on the on above listed vehicles. PCV harness deterioration may result in objectionable driveability and/or HG, CO and NOx emissions which exceed the limits allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. To correct this condition, the PCV harness assembly must be replaced and the engine idle speeds must be reset. Vehicles located in California will be serviced under California Emissions Recall #623.

Each involved dealer, to whom vehicles in the recall were invoiced will receive PCV Harness Packages:

Recall PN #CLFS6221 for manual transmission equipped vehicles

Recall PN #CLFS6222 for automatic transmission equipped vehicles


It looks like recall #312T was ONLY for 87' California Emissions Jeep vehicles and it had something to do with excessive HC, CO and NOx for emission problems as did the #622/623 recalls. You know how California is about emission violations. The PCV system seemed to be a reoccurring problem area for the 4.2L six banger. The oil consumption problem with 87/88 4.2L engines was only a customer complaint notice, NOT a mandatory recall. They only installed this little plastic orifice inline (and replaced the rubber PCV valve grommet and bent up the metal tab inside the valve cover under the grommet so that it was even with the bottom of the grommet) if a customer came to the dealer and complained about abnormal oil consumption, but it looks like they went ahead and combined this little part with the new PCV hose harness as part of the #622/623 recall since it was included with my kit. Now they don't say in the above recall notice, but in the service instructions, the PCV solenoid IS removed as part of the recall.

Not sure what your question is but, yes remove it and throw it away. It is inline of the PCV hose and is plugged into an electrical connector. I'm not sure exactly what it did, but I had one on my '84.

Anyone have an idea how to get the actual recall sheet - this idiot at the smog place said he has to go by the visual inspection conparired to the emission sticker.

Don't start - I know, I know.

Just, post any info about the recall for my 1984 (not 1985).

Thanks!

I don't think their was any recall for the 1984 model year. I bought my CJ-7 new from dealer in 84 and didn't have any recalls that I recall. But I did have that solenoid on the PCV system until 2007 when I finally removed it for good.

I was in the similar situation as you, I had bought my 86 cj7 that was non op-ed from 1993 to 2013. When I went to register it l was told it had a recall for CA smog fix back in 1995 and can't register it till the recall was done, so I called Chrysler and they told me to take it to one of their dealership. The dealer had it for two weeks and couldn't fine the part needed for the fix and just put on a new PCV on it and gave me the paperwork for DMV that said that work was completed for recall. Sorry to say the parts you need are no longer available.

What a pain.

Here's the package in .pdf format for anybody that might need it. Did the trick instantly. One of the things this answers is 'If what you say is true, where's the replacement emissions sticker?'. The answer is, Jeep didn't send one. The recall lists the part that were replaced and a new sticker isn't among them.

Yes, there was a bit of delicate restoration where certain parts of the Recall letter from Chrysler has been 'fixed'.

Should be enough to kill the question at the Smog Check place.
