The EGR valve is easy to remove. Just take out the two bolts holding it in. The problem is the exhaust tube leading into it. Follow the tube to the exhaust manifold. There you will see two nuts holding it on. Remove those two nuts and then all you have to do is maneuver the assy from the engine compartment...

Where is the PCV valve located on a 2000 Ford Escort ZX2?

I have a 1999 ZX2 and had a hard time finding the PCV valve as well, but here's your answer: Remove the heat shield from the exhaust manifold. (This is the front of the engine, clse to the radiator.) You should see an adjacent hose going into the engine. Lightly pull on the hose and it will come off, revealing your PCV valve. I have a 2000 ZX2 and find the PVC valve on the right side of the heat shield on front of engine. It was not necessary to remove the heat shield in order to access the PVC valve. Simply remove the hose gently or you will break the adjacent hose. If you should damage the hose the part number is PA6 and will need to acquire through a Ford dealership.
