Pcv valve on a 3.0L V6 Mazda tribute is buried under the intake manifold. It is approximately under the throttle valve. It is NOT inserted into a rubber grommet in the rocker cover. It is screwed into the lower intake manifold. Use a deep 7/8" 12 point socket to twist it 90 degrees to the left to remove it and reverse this to put it in. Be sure to replace the PCV valve when replacing the spark plugs since all needs to have the intake manifold removed to get to them.

Normally located on top of the valve cover.


Most are inserted into a rubber grommet in the rocker cover.
