so does that mean it has 2 pcv valves? I don't wanna put the second one one there and my car does not run right. My car is not at my house right now so i cant go and throw my new one in it. My air filter has oil on it. The spot were the Pcv valve might go does not have one. So i am wondering if i should put one there to help my car out.

No, it only has one. Be sure to check all the hoses for obstructions, sometimes they gunk up.

How many miles on it?

The hoses do dry up and crack too. I didn't look at the autozone link, but the PCV valve is under the upper intake manifold.
