Maintenance on '04 Durango

I want to do some of the 30,000mi routine maint. myself. Does anyone know where the exact location on the engine the PVC valve is located on a 4.7L durango?
Also, the maintenance schedule recommends a transmission fluid change as well as the main sump. (Whatever that is) Is this difficult on this newer type of vehicle? I have done them in the past, but I am not so sure about this one.

I think the PCV is locates right on the oil filler neck, follow the hose from air cleaner to the oil filler neck, it is in there.

About the tranny service, it's not like what you may have seen or work on before, this trans has two filters and also need to be prime, if you don't do it right, you will turn on the check engine light right after started up and the trans will not up shifts.

There's also a different way to check the fluid level, not like just pull up the stick and look, it's required of the scan tool to read the fluid temperature and checking the level.
