Default 2007 Optima 2.4 Oil Control Valve Location?

I was needing to inspect, clean, test, and possibly replace oil control valve, and was hoping that someone would post a pic or tell me the location of it please. I found a test online that I was going to use. Thanks so much for any assistance!

1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
2. Disconnect OCV connector.
3. Measure resistance between OCV terminals 1 and 2.

4. Check that the resistance is within the specification.

Coil Resistance (Ω) 6.7 ~ 7.7Ω at 20C (68F)



It is held on by one bolt. MAKE SURE you do NOT drop the bolt.

Well, this is the best description I can come up with. Hope it suffices.
