SOURCE: location of pcv valve on 03 ford focus
Here's a picture to locate it..
So, when looking at the engine from above, on the right of the exhaust.

Procedure to replace it
1) Lift and support the front end of your car, or drive up on ramps
2) Get under the front of your car. The PCV Valve is located behind the exhaust manifold, a few inches below the valve cover.
3) Push up on the PCV valve to pop it out of the tube, or pull. You can get it out of the rubber tube with some effort.
4) Remove the rubber elbow from the top of the PCV valve. This can be re-used if it's not squishy. It can also be replaced cheaply.
5) Put the elbow on the new PCV Valve
6) Re-attach the elbow to the PCV tube
7) Push the new PCV valve back down into the large rubber tube

Where is the idle speed control valve located on my 67 F-100 Ford Ranger?

A 1967 Ford would have a carb, so no control valve would be used.
The cam under the choke would provide a fast idle when the engine is cold.

My 2003 ford focus started his morning but as soon as I removed my foot from the accelerator my car would die. This happened numerous times this morning.

Your idle control valve is either dirty or bad. You should be getting a check engine light on your dash.
The idle control valve is located on your throttle body.
If you have a check engine light on you will need to plug a OBD II reader in to retrieve the code.
Please let me know what you find.

IAC control valve. Locato\ion 2002 ford escape

If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

Engine code P0505 for 2002 honda odyssey

p0505 is directly related to the idle air control valve (sometimes called the rotary valve) i cant count how many of these i have replaced on hondas. It is located directly under the throttle body so it can be difficult to replace. I would recommend you having a professional replace this due to the difficulty of the valve removal
