When I go to change the PCV valve I notice there’s two openings, on a fork like tube for two vacuum hoses, yet no nose-able hoses in sight.
Do you

The PCV vacuum line comes from the main vacuum source which will be at the throttle body or intake manifold. Here is a diagram to help. Check out the images (below). Please let us know what happens.
