HiCustomer

It sounds like you have a plugged PCV valve.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
can anyone help me with this problem ??? The pcv valve is not plugged, I have changed the oil and filter and it still continues to blow oil out one side of the engine!
Expert:  ase_master327 replied 8 years ago.
What side of the engine is the oil blowing out?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the drivers side - same side as the dipstick

  • Let's do a little test...

  • With the engine running, pull the PCV valve with hose attached, from the valve rocker cover rubber grommet.

  • A hissing noise should be heard as air passes through the valve and a strong vacuum should be felt when you place a finger over the valve inlet if the valve is working properly. While you have your finger over the PCV valve inlet, check for vacuum leaks in the hose and at the connections. Replace any leaking hoses found in the system.

    ..and the oil is actually spraying out the side of the engine?

    Or is it running all down the side of it, getting the exhaust manifolds wet...

    Reply to ase_master327's Post: yes all over that side of the engine

    Are you sure the valve cover gasket doesn't have something under it, Like a wire?

    It happens to the best of us...

    It really sounds like valve cover gasket, that's the only thing on that side of the engine, and it running all down the side of it????

    Hmmmm.....
