The PCV valve is located in the back of the left valve cover (drivers side).

The PN is 18118-77E00

Cheers,

Tim

The EGR is electronic, it is located at the back of the intake manifold.

Just follow the small metal tube up from the right side exhaust manifold..

Cheers,

well I see the tube leading up from the exhaust manifold into the rear of the intake manifold... do you think it's more likely that I have to clean out the valve itself, or that tube? do you know if I need to remove the whole intake manifold to get to it? thanks for the info

The valve comes off on it's own..

Odds are the valve is defective, carbon build up has not been an issue.

I found this pic that will help me know what I'm looking for... the pipe you described actually goes into the manifold right next to it... I hope I don't have to replace it because it's $300+

if the code is reset, it comes back on after driving at highway speeds and letting off the throttle. this situation is described in the service manual so I'm going to try removing and cleaning it like the manual describes, and see what happens... thanks for your help

I looked everywhere and still couldn't find the PCV Valve on my 2004 XL-7. Do you have a picture of this location?
