Default Oil Leaking

2003 PT/ there is rubber hoses that go into top of block nothing screws in, just push in. Well, there is oil coming from this site. Is this normal? The oil then runs off block onto heat shield and makes alot of smoke? confused

PCV valve and hose probably, does the other end of the hose go to the air filter canister? If so, open the canister, and check the sponge element that's mounted on the side, it's probably full of oil and, since it's an 03, should probably be changed.

If this is the problem, you probably should change the pcv valve, the hose, and the breather (sponge) filter element.

SRG, update pulled the spark plug wire and the well was full of oil, cleaned out well took out plug, very clean,which means there is no oil in the firing area RIGHT?, can not figure where all that oil came from.

Thanks for your help

Well, oil in the spark plug well could indicate that the sealing ring, where the spark plug hole goes through the valve cover, is shot. Yeah, you're right, if the plug is burning clean, you probably don't have bad rings, just a leak in the valve cover seals.

Clean the oil up as best you can, and then keep a close eye on where it's coming from.

PS If the spark plug is closest to the oil fill cap, someone might have just spilled the oil when they were adding it, filling up the spark plug well.

It's what I was about to say.

Clean this mess up and then wait to see if oil come back.
