Pcv vacuum hose help

Ok, so I'm new at the whole "doing your own maintenance" thing but I thought I'd take a crack at it. So, changed the spark plugs, no problems. I was checking the pcv valve, and the whole hose came loose. Now I have no idea where it connects to the engine. I have a 4.7l v8 2006 Commander. I would really appreciate any help, because my husband thinks I'm not capable of doing this on my own and thinks I should just take it to the dealer to have them do all the maintenance. I figure, if I've got a Jeep, I should know how to work on it.

Ha! My stubbornness paid off! I found it. Didn't actually see it, I felt the rubber connection it fit into up by the firewall. Good lord, mechanics must have small hands. I've got a couple new bruises and scrapes, but I did find it. Going for a test drive now.

I have a 2007 4.7 Liter so our engines are identical. My first question is did you actually locate where the pcv valve screws into the engine. I would assume the answer would be yes since you said you were checking it. If not its located on the driver's side of the engine near the fire wall. The hose connects right to the top of the pcv valve. If im understanding your question it sounds like the opposite end of the hose came off. Is this what you mean? If so ill take a walk out to my jeep and tell you where the other end connects.

EDIT: I took me a long time to type this because I had to step away from my desk half way through. Glad you found out where it went. Let us know if you have any problems.

The first picture is a close up. Its located in the middle of both pics where you see the blue ring. You have to take that plug off the top of it to access the actual pcv valve. It just pulls right off. Its hard to get a good picture because its at the back of the motor.

It's way back behind a bunch of stuff. I'm wondering if it was ever attached completely in the first place. The engine wasn't idling near as high when I started it as it had been. The dealership I bought it from doesn't have the most brilliant mechanics ever, or they aren't very thorough. I tracked down a couple of error codes they couldn't ever fix, thanks mostly to this forum.

So the hose curves around to the firewall, correct ?

Oh, and thank heavens the pcv valve is blue, or I might never have found it.
