Hey, when you do your next oil change, do you mind pulling the breather chamber that the leads up to your PCV valve off? It can be removed with 1 bolt I believe and it's supposed to have some sort of 'baffle' system to keep actual oil inside the car and venting of fumes only escaping out via the PCV system back to the intake manifold and re-ingested/slowly recycled out of the exhaust.
I haven't pulled mine yet, but judging from the crud from the PCV valve on the VX models(like mine has) that have the valve seated right into this chamber location, it probably needs a good cleaning.
I'm going to change my oil filter mid Oil Change Interval(my current one) and while it's off it's easy to remove the chamber. Someone else on here asked me to do it myself before, but didn't at my last oil change. I'm actually wondering now if it's crud-filled and would affect running out the oil change to 7,500+ etc.
