Your PCV should be in one of the valve covers on top of the engine, with a pretty decent sized hose going from it to your intake manifold. They usually just pull out and push in, no tools needed. At most maybe a screwdriver for a little leverage.

If you suspect that it's failed, I wouldn't bother cleaning it. Just buy a new one, they're available everywhere and they're not very expensive.

    Oh yeah, the PCV on a '96 Camry is on the passenger side. It's probably the same on yours.

Best place to look is on ebay. Find a reputabe seller, be sure to match the FCC ID number on the back of your current key to ensure compatability. You can probably get one through a local Toyota dealer but will cost much more.
