I have a 2011 Ford Focus SES with a 2.0 liter I4 Duratec PZEV (California edition) engine.
My repair manual suggests replacing the PCV valve every 60k miles (I am currently at 75k). I am trying to find the PCV valve but am not sure where it is.
YouTube videos suggest it should be at the top driver's side, but the Hanes repair manual says I'll need to remove the intake manifold to access it. The Hanes repair manual is also not terribly accurate for the 2011 model year. It contains no information about the Duratec engines.
Before I go through all that effort to find it, I'd like to know if anyone knows for sure where it is, and if it even is really necessary to replace at the moment.
Here is a link to a couple photos of my engine compartment.
