I'm not aware of changing a PVC valve as being a big issue on those vehicles. If it is on the back valve cover, the upper intake plenum will probably have to be removed.

If you need a step by step procedure, you will have to buy a service manual for the vehicle.

Also check youtube as many people have posted videos of simple repairs.

Thanks for the reply. I got help hints and tried them as well as my neighbor. The little pvc just woun't come out. I understand that they can be a real problem. So the dealer removed it and replace it with the new one. Good for another 50 k miles per mechanic.
Thanks again. Rich
