Have a 2002 Duratech. Found a small hose going from in front of the MAF to a 90 degree elbow on the engine but not what looks like a PCV valve. Looks more like a fresh air intake. Hose is only about 3/8 inch in diameter and the 90 degree elbow to the engine is about 1/2 inch. The PCV valve supposedly goes into an oil seperator rectangular box. Can't find it. Bought the Autozone PCV valve which is about 2 inches long and 3/4 inch thick and needs a 90 degree twist to remove and install it.
On another post someone said thet 2000+ Duratechs had non-replacable valves. Is mine non replacable? if not WHERE THE HECK IS IT?
I am stymied!

Charlie, GREAT CLOSE-UP PICTURE!! Is this the actual PCV Valve that your red arrow is pointing to? You said to use only the Motorcraft or Autozone units--must be right because it looks nothing like the Fram one that the parts house sold me. However, I have noted that it is very brittle plastic & haven't been able to get it out as yet, that's why I'm attempting to verify that it is the actual unit in your picture. Your picture looks identical to what I see on my Taurus. Thanks for your input.

Charlie's photo is the correct view pertaining to the 24 valve DOHC engine. The PVC valve is buried in the engine valley and it is a "bear" to get to. It is indeed replaceable. It is not necessary to remove the upper and lower intakes, however while replacing plugs or injectors would be an opportune time to automatically replace the PVC due to the difficulty to get to it. Mine is a 2000 Taurus and I don't know how many years this same picture applies to.
