The pcv valve on the 2.4 l engine is located behind the alternator and the engine oil filter. The best way to change it is to go thru the wheel well. Take off the passenger front wheel, lift or remove the rubber splash curtain, remove the oil filter, disconnect the rubber vacuum hose, then use a 19 mm wrench to remove the pcv valve. I've found it easier to remove the two 10 mm retaining screws of the bracket that is securing two metal lines and an electrical connector for a little more accessibility. Changing the oil at the same time you do this is highly recommended for your convenience.

The PCV valve is located on the back side of the intake plenum.. When facing the engine, locate the second intake from your right. Run your hand to the back side of the intake plenum. The PCV valve is screwed into the backside. Start the engine, disconnect the hose from the valve. You should hear the air from the valve. Stick your finger on the hole and you should feel the vacuum on a good valve. If not, replace it.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 1996 4-cylinder Nissan pick-up?

i think it is on the valve cover but to get to it you have to remove the valve cover because its on the inside. Usually on top of valve cover I just changed one on a 96 Ex 4WD. You need to remove the passenger side front tire, take off the oil filter, and unhook the alternator. It's behind the alternator. Above the pcv valve, there is a bypass hose. if you puncture it, it's a bear to replace. Good Luck
