PCV valve location?

I have a 2001 ram 2500 with the 5.9L 360 gas engine. Had it scanned at the shop and they said the PCV valve needed to be replaced. Hoping someone can confirm if it is on the driver side or passenger side valve cover. It appears the passenger side rubber gasket was removed and now there is leakage around rubber gasket and especially on acceration or under load when cold. Other than noise on acceration when cold it seems to run fine.

Could they have put the PCV on wrong side? Is this possible? Thanks for any advice.

Each year was produced differently. You will have the PCV on one side and the breather on the other. The breather is a big unit that attaches to the air hat and the PCV is a little plastic device with a 3/8" line and attaches to the intake.

I agree with Ram1500, however I would like to know the code that points to PVC only? Can't say I have ever seen that one.

To me I would say find a new shop before they have you have to replace your flux capacitor.

1996 Ram 1500 4x4 Ext Cab 5.9, auto, NP231D transfer case, owned since 72K,trans replace at 91K. Track Bar & tie rod at 119K, Water pump & timing chain (did as pm along with wp) 131K, Fuel pump replaced at 170K, At 172K did the following, Seafoamed, Cap, rotor, plugs (NGK), plug wires, plenum, intaket, new 180 tstat, fan belt, radiator flush, new radiator.

Thnaks guys. I think the leakage is around the doh-nut rubber washer on the valve cover where the PCV hose goes in. I ordered a new one and will try replacing. The old one may have dried out and when the removed it might not be sealing properly. Cheers
