    Normally the intake manifold has to be removed to get access to the breather / oil separator assembly (PCV valve). I strongly suggest to get all the connecting hose replaced as well and use the updated "cold weather valve" upgrade.
    I know some tech claims they could do it without removing the manifold, but it risky and could create problems.
