Default Do We Have PCV Filters?

Quick question - does my 2000 Bonne have a PCV filter that I need to change? Thanks!

2000 The PCV valve is under the engine cover. Once the cover is off and looking at the car from standing in front of it. There is a black plate on top of the supercharger about 4 inches left of the throttle body. It is held on with two 10mm bolts. Remove the cover, spring and then the valve.

Thanks for the replies. I know we have PCV valves, but from some things I've read apparently some cars also have a PCV filter. That'* what I was wondering. Or maybe they're the same thing and people just use different terms. Thanks!

This might be along the same lines as a catch can where the pcv gasses go through a filter/can area and any fuilds get trapped.
