The PCV valve hose had a small crack in it, I didnít notice anything
until the car started driving funny. (Pressing on the gas and getting
no response, a little rattling plus smoke from the exhaust.)
When I changed the hose, I noticed there was oil dripping from inside.
After further inspection, the air filter was soaked with oil and I had
a pool of oil in the air filter container.
I changed the PCV valve, and replaced the air filter while cleaning
the air flow pipes and filter container.
The next morning, I drove to the nearest gas station to get a couple
quarts of oil. After putting the oil in, the car started acting the
same way it did before I changed the hose. Plus a lot more smoke was
coming from the exhaust.
Has anyone had his type of trouble or know what I need to do to get
the car running again?
Thanks in advance.
