On the passenger side of the intake manifold, coming off the bottom
about the center of the engine front to back, you'll feel a hose that
comes off a nipple. That hose makes a 90 degree bend and goes around to
the rear of the motor. Where that hose meets the Y-connector from the
other side of the intake you'll find the PCV valve. It's almost
impossible to see it with the hood installed, and even tougher to reach

It is located at the back of the engine near the fire wall. It is gray with a T connector at the top with two hoses coming off of the T and going forward into the intake manifold.

PCV . Positive Crankcase Ventalation Valves are always located in the valve cover pans with a hose attached usually leading to the air cleaner, or some other vacuum source..

Hey Willy..The maxi fuse is located under the coil pack. Remove the four screws (9/32" socket) and look about 8" below where the coil pack was sitting. You may have to remove one of the spark plug wires to be able to move the coil pack out of the way. The maxi fuse looks like a box about one inch wide and four inches long with a red battery type wire coming out of each end. With a multimeter set on continuity check for continuity on each end of the "box" by touching both wire ends with the probes. If there is continuity the fuse is good if there is no continuity then your altenator may be shot. Go to a parts dealer or equivilant and have your altenator tested before you try to remove/replace it. Hope this helps..WF
