PCV valve should be in the valve cover with a hose coming out of it. Pull it straight out, take it off of the hose, and shake it to see if the valve is loose, as it should be.

Where is the pvc located on a 2003 Cadillac Deville ?

I don't think there is an "old-style" PCV valve on the 2003 Deville, instead, it was 'replaced" by an orifice that is pressed into the cam cover fitting. I think the PCV system came under the EPA's OBD mandate as an emission device that needs to be monitored by onboard systems, and so the "old-style" PCV valve was replaced by a simple orifice (removing one more possible failure point). The onboard system monitors the flow and operation of the PCV system, so if something goes wrong, it will set an error code and turn on the check engine light - even if you just have a cracked or disconnected PCV hose.

Pcv valve location

Most common location is mounted to the valve cover gasket. It will have a hose coming from it going to your breather pan and connected to the breather element inside the pan where the air filter is.

Usually you don't - many are not made to be rebuildable. You typically buy a new one and put it in.
