How do you remove/check this jewel? I think mine might have something to do with my idle issues. So I just checked it out, when I removed the hose from the PCV the engine ran fine, but when I put it back on the idle got rough. When I put my hand over the hose it stopped the engine. Is that how it's supposed to work?

nevermind figured it out. If my valve is sticking I should just be able to soak it in a solvent and it should be fine right? I think that's what J.H. says...

There's a little BB in there that needs to jiggle around, so the crankcase can blow, but not suck. To test you should be able to blow through it one way, but not the other. Just get a new one, they're only a couple bucks.
