Contacted the dealer and the 02 does not have an egr valve

The original question was "where is the PCV valve located?

An EGR stands for "exhaust gas recirculation" which is different from a PCV valve "positive crank case ventilation".

Each serves a unique and different function within the engine.

Therefore the original question remains unanswered! daaaaa...

The PCV valve is located on the back side of the valve cover. You will see the hose that the valve is connected to, running out from the back of the valve cover. The actual PCV valve is screwed into the valve cover, and the hose will have to be disconnected to access the valve.
