It is plugged into a grommet in the oil separator & then a rubber tube to a pipe that goes to the rear of the engine & into the intake manifold. This can only be reached with the front end jacked up the rock guard removed & the engine must be cold as the converter would be very hot. Personally I would go to your local oil change facility & have them do it. They may have some special tools that make it easier. It is the most difficult location for a PCV valve I have ever seen & I would like to see the engineer who OK'd the design burn in hell. how do I know this. I just spent a whole day just getting one out & the new one in.
