Hi here is a pic bolts to front of engine. Did you check with the dealer? as this part may be covered under the powertrain warranty? Should be 1 10mm bolt and it pulls off. May cause oil not to get to the top end fully if it completly fails. Thanks mike

Dealer said the OCV controls the cam timing.
Dealer said that it is sludeged up and so the heads will have to be removed and sent. out for cleaning to the tune of $1300.00.
Car runs great but check engine light is on.
Will desludging the engine help?
Is there a filter or screen that may need cleaned?
Thanks and good luck. Its dealers like that. That give all other dealers a bad rap.
