On the 2.2 engine, it's located at the right (passenger) side of the valve cover on the back side. You'll see a hose going to it. To check or replace it, remove the hose and the metal retaining ring. Remove the valve with a needle nose pliers. Shake it and listen for a rattle. If you don't hear the rattle, it means that the valve is plugged. You COULD shoot some WD-40 into/through it to try to clean it out. Try the shake test again. If this fails, replace the valve. FriPilot
