    Just bought a 2000 regular cab 4x4, 5-speed, 2.7 without the plug wires. Truck is in excellent cond. with 83,000 miles and zero rust. Need to do some maintenance. Where in the world is the PCV valve, not dumb, just blind I guess. Need to change tranny fluid, gonna go synthetic, what should I use, GL-4 or GL-5, and where is the fuel filter, truck did not come with owners manual, got one coming, but need some answers before it gets here. Thanks.

    Shouldnt have tranny fluid in a manual, unless you got a vietmanese lady boy in it with you!!! It would be gear oil
