B) I have looked everywhere and can not find the pcv valve on my 97 Taurus duratec engine.

Any help - especially a picture would help.

I currently have the intake manifold off....

Thank you so very much!!!

ps: can someone please tell me how to disconnect the electrical connectors - some just require a squeeze of the one part - others I can't figure out....

Here's a bunch of images. Hope you're not on dialup!

From the top of the engine..(the green circle is the PCV valve)

And from the side:

It is MUCH easier to get to if you take the intake accordion off, and if you can't wrench your hand in there, taking the throttle body off leaves it in the open. This also applies to the DPFE sensor for the EGR system, which is buried in the same area against the block. (this sensor is the main problem of our EGR systems, it cloggs easiest.)
