Unhappy BMW 325i 2006 PCV Valve Replacement??

hi,
i recently replaced my 325i 2006 BMW starter. i took it to a non-bmw mechanic.
after they replaced it, i believe that they broke PCV Valve !! when i start the car , it shakes at the beginning . also when i turn on heater/defroster, it smells like burning oil or something..
so i think it might be for broken PCV Valve connections/tubes!!
any possible scenarios??
also i really appreciate if you could please tell me how i could replace PCV Valve myself.
thanks

well you definately need to take it back to the repair facility and tell them they messed something up and are they going to fix what they broke? If now tell them you will never bring the car back and you will post their reputation on the net

It's under the intake manifold. Personally I can't see how it can be removed without removing the intake.
