    Pcv. See if the disc is hissing. If so, plan on replacing the valve cover

    With the possibility of a intake manifold for blown out check valve as well.

    Quick update (as it appears I have forgotten...) valve cover ordered, should be here either tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

    Just a side note, I had to fill up the gas tank and after I was done, when I went to start the car, it seems as if it was having a hard time starting. I have the push to start system and when I actually go to start, it will crank longer (and harder) before it actually starts than normal start in the morning/after work. Is this normal with a bad valve cover?

    No. That's usually an indication of a failed EVAP purge valve (canister thing on top of the intake manifold)

    Are the EVAP purge valves easy to replace? The site's search function is still acting funny and I'm at work.

    Very. Unplug the connector and hoses, pop in the new one.

    Hold off on further part replacement till the vacuum problem is resolved......a vacuum disruption makes all sorts of mayhem.
