the pcv valve is located below the throttle body, right below the throttle cable. cannot be seen easily, but it is removed by first pulling the intercooler, then removing the molded line going to it, it is removed with a 19mm socket. (if you look at your engine just below the throttle body you can just see it, points slightly downward. I will be replacing mine shortly, and will be taking pics to document the whole process. need more details pm me and I can walk you through it if needed

I usually gently tap on the ratchet handle with a small tack hammer loosening and tightening to try and break it free, probably has some burnt oil on the threads acting like lock-tite
