mad '88 Thunderbird 5.0 PCV valve location

Does anyone kow EXACTLY wher the PCV valve is on an '88 Thunderbird with the 5.0 V8? I've spent hours trying to find it, and everyone says it is by the oil filler neck but I can't find it. Any help would sure improve my sanity. Thanks.

On the back of the lower intake manifold- should have one thick hose coming off the top of it. Don't forget to replace the screen under it-VERY IMPORTANT.

Re: '88 Thunderbird 5.0 PCV valve location

Thanks. What is the best way to get to it? There isn't much room between the engine and firewall, and what little space there is is taken up by a rats nest of wires and hoses. It;s like I would need to tilt the whole engine forward to get to it, and I don't have a cherry-picker. Or am I looking in the wrong place? I really can't see anthing behind the engine. Do I need to come up from underneath or is there a trick. If I knew where the hoses go from the PCV valve, I could trace them back to the valve, but I'm not even sure about that. Thanks for all of your help, I really appreciate it. J

Remove the upper intake and you can get it easy.

Thanks, I'll tryt that. I was thinking of replacing the intake gaskets anyway, so once I tear it apart I should be able to access it. Thanks for your help.
