Re: 2005 dodge caravan sxt
What you're looking for should be on the upper end of the tappet cover, and connected to the intake manifold, probably by way of a flexible tube....PVC refers to 'positive crank ventilation'..... It a way of re-burning the gases, created in the crank case....

All I can do is tell you what my info, said. 2000 model year--3.3L engine does show a pcv valve. 01--09 with that engine size does not show one. My info said dodge--Chrysler--Plymouth. Depending on your engine, if you have one, check the valve cover.
That's all I could find in my info.
There is a large elbow shaped tube at the back of the intake plenum where the PCV valve hose connects. This tube gets a hole sucked in it due to oil fumes that come through the PCV valve and softens the rubber. To find the tube,simply follow the PCV valve tube from the valve cover on the passenger side of engine to the back of the intake.
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
