Hi,

You aren't going to be happy when I say this. The intake manifold needs to be removed to access the PCV valve. I have absolutely no idea why they design them this way and it is certainly frustrating.

As far as replacement, I attached the directions below. Take a look through them and let me know if you have questions.

Note: Step 1 in the directions says to remove the intake. So, starting at pic 2 are the directions for removal and replacement of the intake. The last two pics are the directions for the PCV. Ugh! A five-minute job turned into 2.1 hours of flat-rate labor.

Let me know if this helps or if you have questions.

Take care,

Joe
