PCV is an acronym for positive crankcase ventilation.
The PCV Valve is a very common replacement item on many engines today. It's called the PCV valve for short but it stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. When your engine spins it many times collects pressure in the crankcase area, and it has to escape to relieve pressure on the motors bearings and seals. The PCV valve and PCV system is typically located near the intake manifold, and many times comes right off of the valve cover. It is very simple to replace the PCV valve, and you can do so by simply unscrewing it, and screwing in the new valve. We recommend using a little bit of teflon tape or paste to make sure you do not get any oil leaks.
Example (see picture below): 2,4 ltr. Audi V6 engine (BDV, AMM)
It's not difficult to replace PCV valve!

It isn't servicable. It is part of the front valve cover. It never needs to the serviced or replaced. Just make sure you change your oil when you are supposed to. Parts stores will sell you one for the older style valve covers. If you really wanted one you could put an old sytle left side valve cover on the car so you could replace it when you feel you need to. (The valve cover in front of the car is the left one.)

poor advice on not replacing the PCV valve. Dirty throttle bodies, dirty oil re-introduced back into the crank case and less efficient valves are all serious concerns, particularly if the oil isn't changed regularly.
I wouldn't go over 60K without replacling it

You have the wrong type hose on the pcv valvle. It isn't vacuum hose.

Testimonial: "thank you you have been very helpful i understand now but the hose that is on the new pcv valve is a vacuum hose "
Remove the hose from the PVC,
If the hose is stuck, try turning it in place with a set of pliers.
Sometimes a Flathead screwdriver can be used to pry it off, but can be dangerous and/or rip the end, of said hose.
However, if you are replacing it anyway, you could cut it off.
Remember to save a segment of hose for sizing.
