It is on the driver's side on the valve cover. it has a rubber hose going to it. you just pull it out and it(pcv) will be on the end of it. I just replaced mine for the first time and had trouble finding it myself. It could be on either engine valve cover, but it's the only hose that runs directly from the valve cover to the air filter/ throttle body. The filter is on the valve side of this hose.

Why is sand filter blowing algae back in pool while vacuuming?

The "spider gasket" inside the valve has been destroyed by the chlorine and the water is blowing through the valve instead of going through the sand. Take the cover off of the valve by removing the screws on top and examine the gasket beneath. If this is not the problem, then I would replace the sand in the sand filter. Pool Masters
