the pcv is located on the rear(firewall) of the drivers side valve cover.turn counterclockwise and pull to remove be careful there are 2 small tabs inside the pcv hole in the valve cover(can feel with small finger) this is to hold valve in place so it wont leak.if you have a oil leak at the pcv a quick fix is to put a small amount of silicone around the pcv o-ring and install.wait hours for silicone to set up.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

I remember when I had my 1998 F150, which is virtually the same vehicle as a truck, I had this same problem and found it to be a child lock.

I wonder if your battery is really in an excellent shape. The way you described seem to be non sufficient voltage for the starter solenoid to engage completely. Make a quick observaton by leaving the headlight on while cranking the engine. If no significant drop on the headlight brightness. Then your battery is assumed to be good. (a cold crank voltage shouldn't below 10V) Then the remained items to work with is either the solenoid or the starter or both. I believe the solenoid is piggy pack on the starter. Most autopart stores would test it for free of charge.
