Welcome! You 1st need to determine if you have an ohv (Vulcan) or dohc (Duratec) as the pcv valves are in different locations. If the 8th character of your vin# is a U,1 or 2, it's a Vulcan. If it's an S, it's a Duratec.

Sheila is correct amundo! I have a vulcan which is a OHV and my PCV valve is located on the passengers side of the car on the rear valve cover almost right above the number 1 spark plug. If you get a chaqnce check out other threads as it relates to where stuff is on a OHV engine and a DOHC engine. I believe there are some pics to aid you. Good luck!!
