I know the PCV valve is located around the passenger valve cover area...but I cannot find it? I bought a new one because I am sure my PCV is stock and needs to be changed. Can someone point me in the right direction as to where it is exactly and how do I change it? I have a K&N chrome breather in the passenger valve cover but stock oil filler tube on the driver side. Thanks.

It's not in the v-cover. It is in the "middle" of the intake manifold under the t-body doghouse. Look from the passenger side.

It can be fun installing a PCV valve. If you try to install it into the rubber grommet, the grommet can fall into the intake valley pan. I installed mine first into the grommet and then working the two together back into the intake. ( a little silicon helps on the outside of the grommet) Good Luck. Gene
