Where exactly is the PCV valve located? I am doing tons of maintenance and have a lot taken apart so I figured I might as well change it sense I have a rough idle anyways. Thanks!

David

No one is probably answering because I showed you where it is...That pic may not be of your engine, but the PCV valve is in the same spot...in the rear valve cover on the passenger side...here are a couple more pics...maybe they'll help...




Your IAC valve is located under arrow #5 in the pic below...

Well, I replaced the PCV valve - and it helped a bit but the rough idle is still there.
