Default PCV valve

Goodmorning Forum crew!
I am replacing my PCV valve today...the problem is locating that beast! LOL! I have the "Haynes" manuel and also seen all the typical diagrams that show the neck of the oil tube...except on my Ram...it's NOT on the oil filler tube. I am baffled till I read a bog a guy wrote on a website where the guy said follow the 1/4 inch tube that is attached to the factory airbox. Well I have one and it goes toward the back of the engine (toward the passenger firewall) and elbows down onto the back of the motor next to the transmission dip stick. Is this the were the PCV valve is located? is this normal for a 2006 Ram 4x4 4.7L??? EVERYTHING I have read said it is attached to the oil filler tube. What's up with this and is it easy to replace? do you just wedge it out or do you have to turn it counter clockwise like on the tube? Thanks so much!!!

I know the 2007 rams have a internal PCV system. I'm assuming that means it's not accessible? It's probably the same for your 2006. Hopefully someone who is more certain will answer you. I know when I was inquiring about a catch can, i was told they can't be used on our trucks because the PCV system is internal

Thanks for the replys! If RamTech wouldn't have posted this...I would have never known! Thanks for the diagrams!
@Gonefishin...thanks! Any and all info helps. I had no idea about an internal PCV valve.
Still learning something new everyday. I have always either owned Ford or GM....LOVE MY RAM!

I found the PCV valve today, but it was out of my reach for the time that I had. Staring at the engine from the front it is located at the very back of the engine toward the driver side firewall. This is very odd to me since pretty much noone has any info of it being there.

i figured its already too late for this but ill just put it in anyways. your going to need a 34mm deep socket for the pcv valve which is treaded to the valve cover very easy to take out did mine in 5 mins. the old one was very dirty and covered in mud. oh and i got my pcv valve from rockauto since all the local parts stores couldnt find me the right one. the one i got from rockauto was exactly the same pcv that i replaced.
