PCV issue

im looking at buying an 02 svt focus with 70xxx miles on it it runs and drives flawlessly. good clustch mint interior and exterior... anyway the guy said that the pcv valve needs a new gasket because it leaks. im a little confused cuz im 99.999999% sure that there is no gasket for it its just a valve and a hose. so my question is is this a big problem or should i buy the car and replace the pcv valve and hose .. also where is the pcv located. thanks for all the help.

The gasket is on the breather/separator on the front of the engine block. Isn't that uncommon for them to get dry and grow, making the PCV fit sloppily.
Can't recall if it's a Ford only part or not though.

I just used a bit of heat shrink to tighten mine up.

If everything is working properly, will you even notice a leak? I can see a loose PCV in the garment. I know if there is as much oil as the amount that was going thru my PCV, I could see it leaking. But a "leak" was the least of my worries! Lol

Also, just because,

The Thermostat housing on the SVT is known to have leaks near the bottom, this can trail down the hose to the pcv,which can make it appear like the PCV is leaking, but with deeper inspection, you will find its the thermostat housing. So, check that out.
