Default 2002 Corolla using massive oil

The problem is accelerating, where it's using about 1 qt of oil every time we
drive it now, but is not burning it ( no smoke ) or dropping it in the
driveway at all.

Could it be leaking into your transmission or engine coolant? If our
engine coolant is milky you have found your leak.

I'd like to try replacing the PCV valve but cant even find the darn thing.

Autozone used to have diagrams of where everything is, but don't appear to
anymore.

I removed the plastic cover on top and still don't see anything that looks
like a PCV valve.

There are only two possible places for the oil to go, it is leaking or it is
burning. If leaking, you need repairs. If burning, you need repairs. You are
not going to fix this yourself, no matter what advice we are able to give
you, so bite the bullet and take your car somewhere where they know how to
help you.

You could keep driving it until it locks up, but my advice is that you keep
your Auto Club membership up to date, and don't go out at night.

Take off the plastic VVT-I shroud. On the passenger side is a valve screwed
into the head with a hose clamped to it. This is PCV valve.

I think I found it, it's actually on the drivers side.
