I found in a chiltons' manual that the PCV valve for my 96 V6 was located under the MAP sensor. I had to remove the MAP sensor by twisting it CCW. Take care not to loose the O-ring in the sensor housing or the O-ring that fits around the PCV. The map sensor is located under the plastic engine cover.(If you have one)The cover must be removed. If you're at the car's front bumper looking at the engine. The map sensor is sitting to the Left side in front of the altenator. If you look closely in small print you will see "PCV" written on the lip of the sensor housing.

AnswerIf it is like the 1994 Pontiac Bonneville the it is in the front of the motor between the altanator and power steering pump. There is a piece of plastic that had a small square about the size of a quarter inch ratchet. turn this piece and under it is a spring and a round o ring. remove ther two pieces and with needle nose pliers reach in and remove the PCV valve. There is also an o ring on the bottom of the valve.
