Yup. but you don't have a PCV, it's a CCV.

From the folks at BavAuto:

"In the early days of these failures, the generally accepted repair procedure (in order to replace the hoses and the valve) was to remove the intake manifold for access to all of the parts. We have found that the repair can be accomplished without removing the manifold. This greatly reduces the complexity and time of the repair."
