    This is probably an obvious question, but I just want to double check.
    Is the PCV valve on the 1999 Honda Accord LX located just right on top
    of the engine sort of in the middle? I don't have a repair manual,
    but I think the valve in the middle of the engine pointing towards the
    cabin and connected to a small hose is the one. Could someone please
    confirm this?

    Also, has anyone experienced a gas padal that is very hard to press
    when you start the vehicle regardless whether the engine is warmed up
    or not? I have this problem for quite a long time on my 1999 Honda
    Accord LX. Every time I start the car, the gas padal requires more
    force to get pressed down. After it has been pressed down a couple
    times during normal driving, it is fine until the next time I start
    the car again. Does anyone know if this is a known problem or have
    any recommended fix?

    According to this drawing of a 1999 4-door manual transmission Accord LX, yes:

    Having the new PCV valve in your hand while you're finding the old one may help,
    though it sounds like you nailed it already. :)

    Consider checking and/or replacing the grommet in which the PCV valve sits (item
    5), too.

    Your throttle body needs to be cleaned. What you are pressing is
    actually the thing that opens a butterfly devise that controls the air
    flow to the cylinders. See your local parts store guy for a can of spray
    cleaner, and help with what to do. bob
