Pcv valve is right next to the IAC valve. right below the valve. That PCV valve is a bare to replace on your car. good luck with that.

    Engine runs rough wont idle in drive

    1. replaced the air filter
    2. replaced the PCV valve
    3. inspected the PCV hose and connectors (nothing wrong)
    4. ran a tank of gas with fuel injector cleaner
    5. tested the EGR valve by pulling the vacuum hose off the top, and blocking the hose. The idle didn't smooth out. I applied a vacuum to the EGR valve manually and the car immediately stalled which tells me that the EGR valve itself is working fine.
