I think you are looking to clean the PCV (pressure control valve) which is located on the valve cover. The easiest way is to pour some sea foam into the hose connected to it PCV and let it sit for about 15 minutes. There is a steel ball inside the valve that hangs up from deposits. Pour the remainder of the sea foam into your gas tank, it will do a good job cleaning your fuel injectors.

Its positive crankcase ventilation NOT pressure control valve. If you went to a parts store and asked for a pcv valve your saying you would be askind for a pressure control valve valve? And if it's the 2.2 good luck finding it since it doesn't exist.

Sorry John, Had i known I was in the presence of greatness I wouldn't have tried to help the gentleman. At least it solved his problem and he didn't go to the parts store and ask for a "PVC". Have a great day admiring your bicep!
