No problem. Just giving a heads up. I managed to save most of mine. About an inch snapped and I had some hard plastic inserts to reconnect the pieces. It's holding up so far.

what exactly are you talking about here out of curiosity? the rubber grommet the pcv valve goes into, the pcv hose, or the oil seperator itself?

Capt. Obvious! Well I checked the oil and the water and didn't see an sign of it mixing. I guess next time it happens I'll have to give it the old "taste test" to see for sure. Thanks

TerryB That's your oil separator. Maybe it's condensation. Unless you're seeing antifreeze. Then you have problems.

Capt. Obvious! here is a pic, the outlined part is what I'm talking about. The blue is where I am seeing water. It seems to evaporate away very quickly once the car warms up???

SrDudley Almost sounds like your describing the thermostat housing... I'd post a pic. Got me lost
