Default PCV Valve on 99 Honda Accord and Hard-to-press Gas Padal

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?

Thanks,

Eddy

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
