My '03 L300 doesn't use a pcv valve. GM decided to do away with the extra parts and fittings by 'asking' engineering to modify the engine ever so slightly to channel crankcase gases back to the intake manifold or throttle to accomplish the same effect, having the engine draw crankcase gases back into the engine intake for recycling/emissions purposes. No more pcv valve. I suspect most, if not all vehicles after 2000 reconfigured engines to eliminate the pcv valve.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2003 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: locating the pcv valve on my 2008 outlook

On my 2003 2.2L 4 cyl, the Crankcase in ventilated directly into the intake manifold. If your engine has a lot of oily blowby, it could easily plug up the hole in the manifold and the head..

Pull out your oil dipstick, put your finger over the dipstick. It should be pulsing, but really shouldn't blow your finger off the hole.

This is a photo of my intake manifold with new o-rings. The PCV is the small blue o-ring in the middle.
