PCV does not handle gas. Open hood and look at top of engine while someone else starts the car. You may have a leaking injector. Did you replace the fuel filter? check that it is on tight and that it is installed correctly, arrow usually points towards the engine.

You might have a shorted injector driver. Disconnect the injector harness from that cylinder and connect a noid light or a high impedance test light and start the engine. If the light stays on instead of blinking, then the injector driver in the PCM is shorted and replacement will be required.

My muffler fell off today and its louder but i have a rough idle now what is the muffler why is it doing this. its also loss of power

your muffler not only reduces sound but also tunes the flow of exhaust gas,so if it is missing, all the engine tune is put out completely,replace asap so that you run quiter and use less gas.(F1 racing cars have a length of pipe that is cut to an exact length to give max power...)
