      I have already searched and am coming up with a lot of conflicting information, so here it is...

      I recently purchased a turbo VR6 (12v OBD2). First off, the car runs like a dream...no issues with misfiring or anything. Yesterday I took my air filter off to clean it and discovered a puddle of oil in the intake tube. Im assuming that it is coming from the valve cover by way of a faulty PCV valve.

      My first thought was to order a new one from the dealer, but it looks like everyone agrees that you have to buy the whole intake boot. Obviously a stock intake boot wont work for me.

      Then I found a post that said the VR6 doesn't HAVE a PCV valve. Which is interesting, because I don't actually SEE a valve on my car. BUT, if I didn't have a vave at all, wouldnt the car be running poorly?

      I understand there are some kits that involve "catch cans" but I'm not sure if I want to do that. The last thing my engine bay needs is more clutter.

      Or, I could just slap a breather on the valve cover it and plug the hole in the intake.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I don't see why you would have to get a whole new intake tube

      Just run a catch can or like you said, plug the tube and put a breather filter on the valve cover. You'll just have to take it off and clean it often but no more oil in your intake

      I dont think they have PCV valves. I know that there is a hose coming from the oil pan on the front passenger side that runs back into the air box. Ive seen the new ones on ecstuning but I dont think a new hose would help. Just slap a small filter on it and it will work.

      That is asinine. There is a freakin' PCV valve on a VR6. Check out 42dd's PCV fix.
