You didn't say if yours is a turbo or not but if it is a turbo a catch can collects the oil vapors that come from the PCV valve.

which one is that? the tube that goes to the intake or the one in the intake manifold. both have oil in them. both my intake pipe, throttle body, and upper and lower manifold show a sign of oil. i took off the valve that screws into the valve cover and checked it the old way, blow on both ends, one way blows the other wont let you blow air through. but i have not checked the other valve. but yes both have oil in tube and on the nipple

If the pcv valve is new, I guess some oil is normal.
