There is no PCV valve per se.
Our engines have a crankcase vapor inhalation system. It allows the engine to inhale the oily vapors found in all crankcases and burn it cleanly. The process includes allowing condensed oil to return to the crankcase via passageways.
These passageways can clog in direct proportion to oil change and quality negligence.
Products like the one you mentioned are of limited effectiveness at best.

When doing the glove test, you'll know within a few seconds if your PCV system passes or fails.

Check out these videos....

Never heard of a blocked PCV causing a dashboard message. The PCV system has no sensors directly connected.

Best practice is to have the car scanned for codes..

Doesn't hurt to test the PCV though.....
