here's what autozone says it looks like





The Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve, or PCV valve, is a one-way valve that ensures continual evacuation of gases from inside a gasoline internal combustion engine's crankcase.

couldn't find anything that points to where it is though

On my 94 2.3 it is located under the intake manifold in a very hard to see location. It's a little inline type without the 90 degree bend. It's easier to feel than it is to see under all the other intake stuff.

I have a 2002 xlt 2.3l and I located my PCV valve on the driver's side. I had to remove the splash shield and wheel. It is located below the second and third intake runners,behind a coolant hose that sits in a plastic clamp. I'm still tryng to get the plastic cap off though.
