Re: 2000 Saturn Sl2 twin cam PCV
Be careful about the PCV valve. If it's the wrong part, it can cause drivability issues. The grommet is important. It seals the valve to the crankcase vapors. Otherwise they leak out nullifing the purpose of the system. Also check on the other side of the valve that the hose back to intake manifold is not clogged or cracked.

If your is like my 1995 jeep, it was mounted on top of the valve cover. I had to order from the auto parts store, a new grommet that holds the pcv in place. When I got the new one in, I cut out the old grommet, and pcv valve. Over a period of time, they will kind of melt together. It was a very cheap fix. and I'm sure there are no leaks. Hope this helps
PCV VALVE LOCATED IN THE FRONT VALVE COVER.JUST PULL PCV VALVE OUT VALVE COVER. THEN YOU PULL PCV OUT OF THE END OF HOSE THEN INSTALL THE NEW ONE. FOR THE 3.8 ENGINE REMOVE THE TOP FUEL INJECTOR COVER.DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR FROM MAP SENSOR AND UNCLIP THE MAP SENSOR FROM THE PCV VALVE ACCESS COVER AND ROTATE IT COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO REMOVE IT.TO REPLACE THE VALVE PULL THE PCV AND O RING ASSEMBLY FROM THE INTAKE MANIFOLD NOTING ITS INSTALLED POSITION AND DIRECTION. MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BUY NEW PCV VALVE TAKE OLD PCV VALVE WITH YOU SO YOU WILL GET THE RIGHT ONE.THAT WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND FUEL.
the pcv valve is on top of the cam cover,,,,there is a black hose coming off it going into the intake manifold,,that black hose on the cam cover take it off,,under there is the pcv valve just pull it out and put the new in
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.
Open hood, top left side between the valve covers. There is a "funky" plastic housing that turns counter-clockwise (less than 1 inch of travel). then pull straight up to reveal the "missing" pcv valve.
