Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. Do you have the engine put back together to be able to start it?

a clogged pcv valve or hose will do this. a little oil in the throttle body is no reason for too much concern on todays over emissionized cars. if you start the engine and take the oil filler cap off and you have suction then the ccv system is clogged.

No I do not have the engine a bar all I was doing was replacing the throttlebody because the Emc light was coming on The motor would die and go into slow-motion and I to be restarted so I was replacing the throttlebody for that ,will take care of the PCV valve thanks for your help have a great day
