They moved it around from year to year. I found the pcv valve on my '93 on the driver side toward the back of the engine. It was located in line. The valve itself was not physically attached to the valve cover it was attached on both ends by a hose. If there is a bunch of engine spooge it can be hard to see. Good luck.

In the later models the valve is in the top of the crankcase breather canister. It is about midway of the engine just above the pan rail. Follow the hose down from the intake manifold. The valve will either be in the hose itself or the top of the canister. You have to stand on your head a little to see it.

Depending on where you get the replacement valve, it may have a plastic fitting on the top with two outles for hoses. You pull off the plastic fitting and you have the correct size for your hose. jd

Thanks to all your help everyone, I found it very easy and after 179,000 miles it was time for a new one. I just replaced the original plugs,wires, fuel filter and pcv valve at 179,000. the one owner old man didnt do anything but brakes, oil changes,etc. Next are replacing the original belt (cracked very bad), hoses and timing belt and tensioner. I got all my parts at Rock Auto that I heard about on this site and saved a lot of money. Randy
