the PCV valve should be located on top of the engine block, on the passenger side. there will be 2- 10mm bolts holding it down and a plate will be labled (PCV) on it. simply remove bolts, the spring and the PCV valve should be sitting right there.

On a 1996 Chevy Camaro, the PCV valve is located on the right side of the valve cover. There is a hose that runs from the PCV valve and connects to the back of the intake manifold.

on the passenger side of the intake manifold is a small diamond shaped plate with two bolts, remove the bolt and the PCV is under that plate

In between the exhaust manifolds. You'll need thin fingers - it ain't easy to remove them.

Buy a haynes manual which will explain everything to you. You can pick one up for about 20 bucks at a local auto parts store.

If you remove the 3800 series plastic cover, look to the left of the intake manifold directly in front of the alternator. You will see an electrical connection-this is the MAP sensor, which is clipped into place. Remove the MAP sensor by unclipping it and pulling it out, and then twist and remove the PCV valve cover right underneath the MAP sensor. The PCV valve is right underneath that cover. Pop it out and replace it, and put the PCV valve cover back on along with the MAP, and finally replace the 3800 series cover and you're good.
