Default Oily PCV

Checking under the hood today and see quite a bit of oil in the area of what I would think is the PCV valve (from the front, to the left at the top of the motor).

Cruiser has 30,000KLMS, anyone else see this?

That is normal. all my turbo chryslers do that, you'll find it in the air box too. See on most cars it just vents into the manifol, but on a turbo the manifold is under bost sometimes, so it vents into the airbox, were it is sucked into the motor, and reburned. All of mine it congeals in the air box, after vaporising in the motor, and then makes a sluggy mess, on older 2.2's & 2.5's it drips onto the trans and then the ground. No worries, unless you're haveing major blow by, in which case you'll blow the dipstick out or worse.

PianT, I had some seepage around the base of mine.
I disconnected the hose from it and found it not to be screwed in all of the way. I think if you check you may find the same problem.
You can also take it completely out and put a little teflon tape on it.

I found the same thing on mine. I tighten it as hard as I can by hand but it keeps loosening up. I am afraid to put a wrench on a plastic part, but I guess i'll have to.

Mine was loose as well. I put a wrench on it with light pressure so as not ot break it. No problems now. Been thinking about getting a catch can to stop that oil from getting sucked into the intake and coating it.

Default Re: Oily PCV

I see this thread is pretty old; I just replaced my PCV because I found the old one was almost falling off...barely finger tight! There was oil around it on the valve cover, I had been smelling what I thought was exhaust,but, it was more like the oil fill cap was left off. Turns out it was the loose PCV. A word of caution I put an "O" ring on the new one & tightened the new PCV with a wrench all the way in...it appears the reason the other one was loose is because the valve cover is cracked just to the side of the threads
I think someone before me got a bit rough with it and forced it to the point of no return; So, I filled the crack..(just hair line really but visible) with gasket maker silicone..seems to have done the trick..so far! Now I don't get that "oily smell" when I turn the heater fan on
