Re: where is the PCV valve??
Its quite possible that you do not have one! Jeep also uses a CCV system which is basically a fixed orfice. you will find a plastic fitting in the valve cover attached to a line to the manifold. To service it, remove and clean with a small wire and some carb cleaner. Make sure there is vacuum in the line, if not clean it out as well.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you are able, get a original part and change it following the services / warranty list of parts, that the dealer change according the miles. If you buy the PCV in a regular auto store; more frecuently, maybe half the time. Hope this helps. Take care.
All these answers are WRONG!!! The PCV valve isn't located anywhere near the valve cover but underneath the Intake manifold behind the secondary air pump. The PCV hose starts just to the right of the base of the Oil dipstick tube and leads to the right (driver side) to a rubber T. The PCV valve is actually inside this T. You have to unscrew the clamps and carefully pull out the old Plastic PCV insert/valve and replace it with a new one. Most of the time you will also have to replace the hoses since they will be full of sludge/crud and may have gotten brittle from the heat of the 1.8 engine. It is very difficult to access the PCV valve on the 1.8 engine and unless you have doublejointed hands you may need to remove the intake manifold to get to it. But some have done it without removing the intake manifold. Here is a link to some pictures of the location of the PCV valve which in case is an insert residing in that rubber T. http://newbeetle.org/forums/1-8-liter-turbo/45626-pcv-valve-location-2000-beetle-1-8t.html
pcv valve is located on the valve cover of the engine. you will see a line running close to the middle of the valve cover gently pull the line out of the valve cover, the pcv valve will be on the end of the line. take out the pcv shake it, if it rattles it is okay, if you don`t hear a rattle it needs to be replaced. Also I personally would change the pcv valve every 25,000 to 30,000 miles because they are usually inexpensive.
PCV = Positive Crankcase Valve.
Look on top of your rear Valve Cover. There should should be a hose going onto the PCV that has a nut shaped base which is screwed into the Valve Cover.
First: remove the hose connection to the PCV.
Second: unscrew the PCV.
You'll find the PCV valve
on the right side of the front valve cover. You'll need to remove the
valve in order to troubleshoot it to determine if you need a
replacement. To remove, pull the PCV valve out of the cover and detach
the old PCV valve to determine if it needs replacing. Blow air through
it in order to see if it is clogged. If it does not seem to ventilate,
then you'll need to install a new valve.
the new PCV valve into the spot of the old valve. With the correct
part, it should snap right in. Take the hose and reattach it in order
to complete the installation.
The PCV valve is hidden on top of the intake manifold down in a little enclosure. There are two small bolts holding the PCV cover. Often there is a fairly large vacuum line coming into the enclosure. Remove the cover and pull the PCV valve that sits down into a gasket. Simple
