That's really weird. Maybe you've just been too gentle with it - I know I have a tendancy do that, but sometimes poundingTheHellOutOfIt is really the only way to go.

Indeed, with many things I have learned to screw being gentle and just pound. So good luck, I think mine was pretty hard to smack off the d15b8, and that engine wasn't even in anything, just sitting in a driveway.

If my engine was out of the car it would of been easy. My PCV valve is right next to the fire wall below the intake manifold. Nissan is weird

User-unfriendly engine bays suck. I remember changing the spark plugs in my Dodge Spirit. I had to remove the entire air-intake and lie face-down across the engine to access the rear plugs.

Last winter I had to pull the v6 out of my Passat to change the water pump. Nice. I guess that makes the underdrive pulley a bit out of the way.
