Default Location of PCV valve on 95 SE

My Haynes manual was not real specific as to the location of the pcv valve. Any descriptions would be helpful. Any pictures would be awesome. Thanks

Chiltons is the better of the two. However both are considered fire starters next to a Helm Factory Service Manual. Helm manuals are written for the dealerships and are complete a to z for our cars. Ebay is a good cheap source for them. Usually get them for 5-10 dollars more than the Chiltons/Haynes.

Your PCV is located under a cover with a sensor on top of it next to the alternator right atop that end of the intake manifold.

I have the Haynes and its is very specific to the location, including decent pics. Are you sure you have the right manual?

All right, not to beat this topic to death, but I wanna make sure. I this (circled) my pcv valve?
Haynes Manual says: "remove electrical connector from MAP sensor.."
Obviously there are none here.

Any help is appreciated.

Sorry if my first post was confusing. Most have a sensor wire up there as well.

After reading the Haynes manual and changing my PCV valve I realized that mine did not have a spring. Do all PCV valves have springs?
The O-ring was orange (Fram?) so I thought that it may have been replaced and the spring left out. Dunno.

Is your MAP sensor missing? Or you have it removed to change PCV? I'd get a new PCV complete. Should have a spring there to preload the top piece (MAP), then it clips in place.
