Question about 2003 Ford Focus
The book says it is under the intake manifold but I cannot find it.
I don't think it has a pcv valve, if it does it will be in the valve cover. i think that year has a tube running from the valve cover to the throttle body and is controlled by a servo

SOURCE: how to change freeze plug
The easiest way to remove it is to use a flat or small round drift pin punch. Just catch the edge of the freeze plug and tap it until it turns sideways. Then reach in with some pliers and grab it and remove it. If you can get a brass plug to replace it do so. The brass plugs last longer. The steel plugs rust out sooner. Good luck. They are usually in a hard place to reach. Improvise and use lots of patience. You will get it out.

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

your engine code means "big leak" in the evap control system, this system has alot of pieces, but you are looking for a vacuum leak most probably, look at your vacuum hoses, and refer to the vacuum diagram stuck under your hood for routing, see if you have a bad hose, or disconnected hose some where. these are small vacuum hoses that attach to the purge valve, air filter housing, and charcoal cannister. let me know what you find.
