Replace PCV valve?


Checked past threads without success, and looked at Qualo's SS Book, but still unsure where exactly PCV valve and housing located. Qualo's says on driver side of block in middle, essentially. I have found something that looks like it goes into the top of the block at about that location, with something that looks like a sparkplug wire connector coming off of it and heading in about a 1/4 in. tubing toward the front of the engine. Is this it? Also when replacing do you just pull the "cap" off and then somehow unscrew it? Also, assuming I got the right pcv from Auto Zone, it has a hose connection on one end, and a non-threaded cylinder on the other one. So I assume it sits in somekind of housing.

Thanks- 72k all stock 350

Does it look like this:

and the hoses look like:

The PCV valve just pulls out of the rubber grommet in the intake manifold. Easy-peasy.

It sits in the intake right next to the driver side manifold.

Perfect Answer

a picture is worth a thousand words. Not quite, but real close on both pictures. The guy from Knects, located something on the back of the valve cover on the passenger side, that looked like it was going to be it. But, glad you guys responded back in a hurry, as the auto stores looked more reasonable (old school looking) than the newer version.

Thanks for the great help.
