2005 2.0 Duratec PCV Valve Location?!?!?!

Where is the PCV valve on a 2005 2.0 Duratec? I just received my replacement part yesterday and went out to change it today thinking that it would be a quick 5 minute job, but much to my surprise, I can't even find it. All of them I have changed in the past have been super easy to find, but this thing is elusive! Anyone have pics?

If you are under the front looking into the engine compartment, you can see it easier than trying to find it looking under the hood. The problem is reaching it.

you have to remove the intake manifold to get to it. I think the user Mave removed his PCV value when he did his turbo install. Find his build thread for that and he has detailed pics/description of how to remove the intake mani; if i remember correctly.

After locating it, I decided to call my local dealership out of curiosity to see what they would charge. I figured it would be $250+ for labor since the intake manifold has to come off, but they said it's $77 and the intake manifold doesn't have to come off. After looking at it, I don't see any way possible to change it with the intake manifold in the car, but if they stick with their estimate, I'm more than willing to pay $77 to have it changed. I made an appointment for next Tuesday, so I'll update the thread accordingly.

After speaking to the dealership I noted previously, I decided to call a couple of other dealerships. One of them had an open slot this morning at 9:00 so I took it. Sure enough, they were able to change it without removing the intake manifold. They had a long pair of pliers with a curved end and a small pry bar to slide the hose off. With tax and all, it was right at $85 out the door.

Here is the 100k mile PCV of nastiness.

wow, that's disgusting. When mine needs changed I think I'm going to look into a catch can setup on it.

$85 isn't bad at all though.

PCV valve necessary to replace for 100k recommended service?

Hi, my local (Baltimore) mechanic recommended that I simply not replace the PCV valve at all, since he would have to charge $500 or something to take out the intake manifold, etc ... I got a similar quote from a dealer in DC.

If I can't find a mechanic/dealer who will replace it for a reasonable amount, is it a reasonable option just not to replace it, even though it's in the Maintenance Guide under the 100k recommended service?

Btw, 6Stringer, which dealership was that? In principle, I could be within driving distance to WV in Baltimore.

Thanks!
