Can someone post a pic of where the PCV valve is on a 1999 vulcan engine? At 125k miles, it's time to replace it.
Only posts I've found are for the Duratec.

Check engine light is on, and it says it's a small evap leak...
ideas?

Thanks!

P0442 - small EVAP leak: Most common cause is a bad gas cap seal. Look closely at the gas cap sealing surface for small cracks, etc. Also inspect the filler neck (from under the car) for rusting out. If the gas cap looks at all suspect, replace it ($10) and clear the code and see if it comes back or not.
