You don't say what year you have but locate the pcv valve somewhere on the valve cover. You will have to buy a new one at your parts store and replace it. You have the option of CLEANING it with Brake Kleen or carb/choke spray. Clean it until it rattles nicely. Wait for it to dry or dry it with compressed air and reinstall. They DONT always have to be replaced; periodic cleaning is the key. Remember, gum, varnish, dirt and especially carbon are an engines' worst enemy. The valve may not be in the valve cover if the engine is a 2.3L 4. It will then be between the back of the engine and the intake manifold in a hose going to the valve cover.

PCV valve should be on bottom right side of motor. to the right of the last spark plug. Pull it out with car off. It comes out with a hose on it. Insert new PCV valve into hose. Insert PCV into open hole.

I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 and the PCV valve was located to the right of the exhaust heat shield in front of the engine block. All I had to do was pull the rubber elbow out that was connected to the PCV valve and then pull the valve out. It was arguably the easiest maintenance work I've done on a car. I didn't have to take apart the heat shield or any other component.

it will be in one of the valve covers connected to a rubber line. It will be metal and when you shake it, it should rattle.
