Standing in front of the engine, its on the left side of the engine intake. You'll have to remove that MAP sensor to get to the PCV Valve.
Generally you will find a PCV valve somewhere on one of the valve covers, with a hose the connects to it.
Most are locatedon back of your intake in the middle.
It's going to be off the valve cover(s) one or the other. Plugged right into it.
I have an 88 elite econoline motorhome, I'm having a problem swiching over from 12 volt to 110.

It should be on top of the valve cover on the driver side right where you add oil. The oil cap is at the end of the valve cover towards the back of the engine and the pcv valve is on the same valve cover but towards the front of the engine. It sticks out of the valve cover just like the the oil cap does. I have the exact same year and model car as you and that's where mine is located at.
I believe that it is right on top of the valve cover, a (little short 90 degree hose) goes directly to the air cleaner. It comes out forward of the air cleaner.
there is a pump in both tanks, as well as a high pressure and a low pressure pump on the body and under hood

Hi I use to drive a 87 van and recently bought a 88 so I am pretty sure that it is the same but you push the blinker lever forward. Hope this helps.
i say it probably not that check under your throttle body your terminal vacumm switch is probably leaking i have a 88 and it has 124,000 and they were both shot which i replaced they runn about $16.00 a piece they have to be special order from parts america.com
buy the park at the auto parts store then look under the hood for it. it should go up to the air cleaner somewhere just look for the hose.
I was told by a transmission company that the 1992 tranny can only be used for 1992 Taurus models, no exceptions.This is correct the axode in a 1992 3.0 Taurus has different bulk head connectors from valve body,it won't work.As well the 88 is an axod not a axode.
Your idle air control valve may be dirty or clogged, the fuel filter may need changing or the rpm is set to low.
Drivers side is easy passenger side is tough and you must remove the top of the intake to do this. Just the top not the whole thing.
Hey Jeff==It is on the pass side of the intake manifold. There should be a hose going from it to the throtle body. GoodluckJoe Additionally: I rotated my engine to get access to the pcv, and changed the three sparkplugs back there while I had access. Using the slope of the driveway as a helper, I was able to swing the engine just by grabbing the top and pulling it toward me. Jonny
1st check fuel filter, air filter, fuel pump. You may also want to run some fuel injector cleaner (or carb cleaner if it's an 88 or 89 without FI). Also check for any vacume lines which may be split or have come off, check the oil cap and oil dipstick are on tight (seriously), and check the PCV valve is in place and not clogged (you can pull the PCV valve out and shake it up and down. It should rattle just a bit. If not, it's clogged). If it's only recently started idling improperly, it could be bad gas as well.
Top center of valve coverIt has a large hose on it that connects to the intake manifold. To remove it, roll a rag and place it next to the PCV valve, use a pair of pliers to grab the bung and use the rag as a fulcrum to pop the valve out of the grommet. When the valve is removed, remove the grommet from the valve cover and replace both. Its beside the air filter casing and on top of the valve cover on the 88 22R. i used a set of needle nose to get it out and only my fingers for the hose retainer.
It is located towards the rear of the car on the intake manifold For more info refer to haynes manual or service manual I found the PCV valve on my 1989 Honda Accord DX (carbureted). It is at the rear side of the engine almost directly below the center of the front edge of the top of the air cleaner housing. The valve is mounted vertically in the intake manifold. The only difficulty is that the air cleaner housing has to be removed -- four nuts, as well as a number of vacuum hoses disconnected. Also ideally I need to do the whole procedure again as I didn't get the valve to seat well in the manifold; I need to find a 2" long (approx.), about 1/2 inch in diameter, piece of copper pipe or somthing similar to tap the valve down into the manifold firmly.
There may be issues with the fuel pump or the fuel filter may be in need of replacement among other things.
If you have done a compression check the next step is to take off valve cover and look.
