PCV valve (if that's what you're talking about) should not need to be replaced anywhere near this soon, and it sure as hell shouldn't cost $200 to replace. I'm pretty sure that since it's a consumable part, though, it wouldn't be covered under any warranty.

It's an emissions part and it carries a 100k mile Federally mandated warranty.  All emissions control pieces do.
Prove it. You may be thinking of some weird California thing. PCV valves are not covered under any manufacturer's warranty here in Georgia, to the best of my knowledge. I would be quite surprised if they were, given that I've paid multiple times to have them replaced and they weren't subject to any warranty then.

The EPA thing you linked to clearly says that PCV valves must be warranted for 2 years or 24,000 miles; Toyota apparently warrants them for 3 years or 36,000 miles.

Good info -- I didn't know the PCV valve was covered for any length of time. Thanks, Lance.

Maybe I was misleading with the PCV thing. The high cost was quoted to me by Toyota to just CHECK the vavle
I assumed if it needed to be replaced it would be covered but they mentioned how part of the engine had to be dissassembled and crap like that.
Jiffy Lube used to check the PCV valve for free. Why are you even having to have it checked so early?
