PCV Valve is in the end of 1/2" or so size hose inserted into a rubber grommet in the top of one of the valve covers. I believe it's on the passenger side closest to the firewall.
If you have the 24 Valve engine, the PCV valve is on the drivers side of the engine compartment, if you're facing the front of the vehicle, just under the air intake hose. Its not directly on the engine but rather in line with the oil separator tube/hose. Follow the black accordion tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body valve. Place your hand on the bottom of the throttle body and you will find the PCV attached to two short rubber hoses. Hand access is limited, so you have to feel for the PCV and blindly remove the hoses from the PCV. Be patient, and allow time to finesse the new PCV onto both hoses.
I recommend purchasing this molded new hose for a few dollars from your Ford dealer. They tend to clog or collapse after several years. The whole process can be done in 15 to 30 minutes and save you a lot.

Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted

The PCV valve is located under the intake manifold on the non-hybrid 2.5L engine. The intake manifold MUST be removed in order to service the PCV valve.
The PCV valve sits in the crankcase vent oil separator.

Location of pcv valve on 2008 ford taurus 3.5


On 3.5L engines, the PCV Valve is located on the rear valve cover (see pictures bellow). Please note: the PCV valve must be replaced if it's removed. Access to the valve is easier if you remove the upper intake manifold. However, this is not absolutely necessary and if you are already a little mechanically inclined you can do it the way you would replaced any other PCV valve.

    -A 19mm open wrench will make your life a lot easier if the PCV valve is a bit tight. It is in an awkward spot to apply pressure.

    -Disconnect the electrical connector from the valve. There is a small pin or locking device on the wire that you will have to slightly depress for the connector to release.

    -Disconnect the hose from the valve and turn the hose clockwise so that you have a bit of room to work with.

    -Turn the PCV valve counterclockwise and remove from the valve cover. Pay close attention to the position of the valve at the point when it is to be removed. The new PCV valve will go in at that same position. Why is this important? It is possible to install the PCV valve facing in the opposite direction. Once the PCV valve in and locked it in place, it damages the locking mechanism. Therefore, if you remove it you will have to throw it away and purchase a new one.

    -You just saved $130 - $150 to have the PCV replaced at the dealership...

Rear of the engine (near the firewire) with a hose that connects it to the air intake. See this video @ 5:50 to see location and what the hose looks like.

PCV valve location


if i know what you are asking, look at where you put your oil in. on the valve cover to the top right should be a plug with a tubeing runs to your air clear tube where the air mass sensor and carb is located. i think that is what you are looking for.
