SInce you have the supercharged model...

The PCV valve is located on top of the supercharger. Take the plastic cover off the engine and you will now have a clear view of the SC. The PCV valve is under a black square piece of metal held on with two 10mm bolts. It should have PCV stamped on top. Take out the bolts and lift the PCV out and replace. Really easy.

Check the gasket...if it'* ok just reuse it. If not, you will need to get a new one. Hard part to find. I had to go to the dealer and took two tries before I finally got the right part.

The PCV valve just vents any crankcase fumes back to the intake. It'* an emissions thing. In case there are any explosive gasses, you get another chance to burn them off. That'* engine oil on it, not SC oil.
