Q. I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT with the large V-6. Where do I locate the PCV valve on this engine?

Thank You,

A. It's under the MAP sensor in the upper plenum. You need to remove the MAP sensor by turning it ¼- turn while pushing down. Remove the sensor and the PCV should be under that. Reach in with needle nose pliers to grab it.
