Thanks a million for the info. This one will definitely go in my “tickler file”. I’ll bet you were even more relieved than your crankcase pressure!

Great to hear it was something simple.


Great that it was something so inexpensive and easy to fix.
Maybe a word to your mechanic about this would be in order since the PCV is the first thing he should have considered instead of WAGing.




It is always good to hear about one that turned out OK.


Wild A$$ Guess.


Glad to hear it was the PCV system, and not the more drastic possibilities.

We always like to hear back about what fixed a problem.
