I was Away sorry for the late response, i dont know i didnt get the email for the response from you guys, thanks alot for the followup but it is still inside. i have closed the hole by inserting the broken half into it. whats an easy out and how can that be used, i went to the workshop where i inspected another open engine, it can be taken out by opening the head of the engine as the head has machine drilled close section.
would it have any effect if i didnt remove the broken piece out.

attached PCV valve & location of PCV on the head of engine
the PCV broke from the Hole in between the half is inside and i fixed the half broken above just to keep it close, can anybody tell what is the exact function of this & what can be done to remove this

I love using lmgtfy as much as the next guy, but English is not the OP's first language, and "easy out" can be interpreted as a product, an expression, or even a slang term.

You have to remove the old, broken PCV valve. You may have to drill out the remains of the old part in order to remove all of it. An "Easy Out" is a tool to do that removal. I am thinking "jimijam's" idea of removing the valve cover may be easier AND faster to get out the remains of the old broken PCV valve than using an Easy Out.

so it means just to smash the PCV inside and then fit a new one, on the other hand if i dont do it would it effect anything,

1) You have to remove the old PCV valve. Do not smash it inside and leave it in the engine. It has to come out.

2) A broken PCV valve is not good. It will lead to problems such as oil consumption, leaks, and perhaps emission problems. It may "work" for now, but it will not work well.

Don't be "mesznoon" (crazy), get the old valve out. It seems simple enough to remove the valve cover.

I was thinking about removing the valve cover, and it's not just the valve cover. You would have to remove the intake, to get the valve cover off. Have you tried pulling the PCV out with needle-nose pliers, or a coat hanger with a little hook bent on the end? Maybe spray a little penetrant (WD-40, liquid wrench) into the hole, to loosen things up.

actually i went to the honda specialised workshop
i showed them the case, they showed me already opened engine, even if we open the cover, inside the cover there is a steel plate drilled to the valve internally from factory & that cant be opened as there's a plate internally between PCV and the remaining valve


Dear Rick & BLCKFLSH Kindly have a look here

Another PCV Issue

should i do like this

Try it. Whatever works, but you need to get it out. Just try not to gouge the inside of that hole too much, or the PCV will not seal well. Even if you could get to it from inside the valve cover, it's a lot of work because you would have to remove the intake too.

+1....and funny how you reference a Miata....I have my sister-in-law's 1990 Mazda Miata in my driveway while she and my brother are deployed overseas....changing its PCV valve seems difficult- but the Miata is "lucky" in that baffles prevent pieces of the broken valve from damaging those engines. I have one year to get that Miata running like new.

Yes, get it out!
