Thank you for writing in. To find the PCV valve, you are going to want to look at the top of the valve covers. You will see a black tube leading to the unit. The unit itself will be a small closed cylinder, that you will only see and be able to remove once you disconnect the tubing. It will help to have the replacement part in hand, so that you know what to look for. 


Good luck!
