On some 4 cylinder engines I remember seeing a valve on the front drivers side of the valve cover. I was under the impression that that was the CCV. Not actually a valve, but a small orifice in a plastic or brass elbow.Actually that filter is connected where the ccv should be
^^^This is how I remember the 4 cyl setup as being. I wouldn't worry about the filter or the elbow that's usually there being connected to the air box. Just as long as the crankcase can inhale filtered air.No actually, the elbow with the filter on it is supposed to have a hose going to the airbox. The small connection on the front driver side goes to manifold below the throttle body.
There should be a small opening somewhere in the fitting that attaches to the valve cover. If you can get the hose off easily, you might be able to poke the orifice with a round toothpick or similar instrument.Checked the FSM and that is the correct location of the clean air intake for the 2.5L. Just need to make sure the vacuum pipe to the throttle body is clear now. Thanks guys!

Just another dumb question, I guess I could see where on the 2.5 with the port out the side of the valve cover and the vent to the air cleaner out the top, that there may be some engineering aspect as to which goes where. But on the 4.0 and 4.2 sixes with both vents on top and the design of the valve cover, does it/would it, really make a difference which goes where??I could have sworn the line to the intake was on the back and line to air cleaner was on the front... oh well...
