sorry i was thinking 6 cylinder for the pvc yes the valve is located pass side between oil filter and alternator . but is very hard to see and even harder to replace this is something no tech wants to do but there is a hose there runs on the side of engine that go to he valve if you follow the hose you will see the valve good lock.
