Pcv Valve Location

Ok, so I need some help in locating the pcv valve on a zetec. I've done numerous searches here looking before I started this thread. Nothing helpful. I've consulted the Chilton manual and all it shows is the spi engine. Can anyone describe to me where I will find this?
Thanks for all your help already for the other things...

if you open the hood of the car and look at the front of the engine on the right you should see a "u" shaped rubber hose which is attacted to the pcv valve. Hope you find it.

ok, look at your engine

in front you see your header

behind your head, there's an oil seperator mounted to the block (it looks like some weird thin rectangular container.

There's a hose coming out of the top right side of that and going along the side of the engine

If you pull that hose out of the rectangular thing, voila there's your pcv valve

"behind your head" should be "behind your header"

it is on the front side of the engine.

Man, that was too easy. Thanks, found it and changed it. Still pretty free for 87k.
