Angry How to change PCV Valve??

I have an '02 Ranger V6 XLT 3.0 and I've been having problems burning through oil really fast. I'm not seeing any smoke out of the exhaust nor do I ever see any wet oil spots under where I park. I found the PCV Valve but can't figure out how to get it out from the elbow that's wrapped around it. I also noticed a slight decrease in power. Please help.

Thanks in advance!

Chase

Ya it will pop out. You will need to try pretty hard to get it out they are tough. Just try not to break it off.
