Where is the Darn PCV Valve

Simply put, I am trying to find the PCV valve to my 94 Civic VX with absolutely no success. Respectfully, before anyone mentions it, I have in fact looked in both Chilton & Haynes guide; but the diagrams & descriptions to its location are failing me & I am beyond frustrated.

In addition to that, I have scoured the internet will similar results. To be certain, this would helpful for anyone else who's looking to find it down the road.

Ideally, what would really help are color pictures that pinpoints the exact location of the PCV valve. I respectfully repeat, color pictures from perhaps a smart phone, etc, because a diagram or solely an explanation of it's location will not do....I've been there already.

Thank you all for your help.

If memory serves me (not always) the "pcv" on a VX is not a valve just an orfice.

There are 2:
the 90 = Where the PCV line comes up through the intake manifold (by the drivers most fuel injector).
the straight one (the one the parts store will sell you) = Pushes into the breather box/ seperator on the back of the block (under the intake and a PIA to get back on).
Shooting for 600 miles of range at 65-70 mph out of a vx.

For example on the gen 2 insight the pcv is on the left side by the dip stick and connects to the egr circuit by the intake ports. The crank case breather is at the rear of the valve cover and connects to the air filter box.

On my sidekick the pcv is above the intake runner for cylinder 1 and connects right to the intake manifold. On the rear of the engine top of valve cover is the breather that connects to the cai.
