There should be a sticker with a diagram showing the location. The sticker is at the front of the car where the latch for the hood is (above the rad basically). However, even with that sticker it isn't simple to find. From the passenger side of the engine you will find the alternator right at the top. Behind the alternator and about 6inches to the rear of the car is where you will find the valve. It is buried under some cables but it is there. it in a twist off compartment and it spring loaded with o rings so be carefull mine flew apart when I did mine. as stated above but with a step by step: 1. remove plastic engine cover (note some have "pcv" in raised letters directly above where the pcv is located 2. remove 3 10mm bolts carefully 3. remove spring 4. pcv will pull right out 5. reverse 1-4 to reassemble
