I had a 96 with a 3.8 and i believe it was on the left side of the engine, right into the valve cover. I do remember that it stuck out and had a 90 degree elbow on it. I suggest buying it, if you haven't, and trying to match the part up with something on that side of the engine. I hope that i have helped a little. On a 2001 V6 3800 series engine, the PCV valve is situated underneath a two-bolt cover located on the left (passenger) side of the engine (right next to the "3800 series" stamp!). In other words, it's right on top of the engine, easily accessible, and you'll use a 10mm socket for the bolts. Make sure the engine has cooled before you do the change (at least an hour after driving). If you still have trouble finding it, the cover is shaped somewhat like this <> and has "PCV" stamped in small print. The part costs under $4. This poster is correct, however, there is a gasket and this PCV Valve is under spring tension so slowly loosen the bolts, if your engine is like mine, the gasket material will have bonded, and it will require you to pry apart the cover from the plenum. Most importantly, lube the PCV when you fit it back into the spring, and make sure the O ring does not fall into the intake. There is an O ring at the bottom of the PCV valve, just simply remove with small needlenose pliers. Question : I am also trying to replace the PCV valve - but on a 98 Camaro 3.8 - I removed the two bolts on the top of the valve cover next to the 3800 series stamp on the engine. There is a spring inside there. The guy at AutoZone told me that was not the correct place. I put the small cover back on. After reading these comments I guess I was right. I am just concerned about the O ring, is that something that can easily fall inside? Also the new PCV valve didn't come with a new O ring, should it of?
