You'll see elevated oil consumption and likely external oil leaks. My pcv fix kit blocks that port as well with a screw and a nylon washer that allows the epoxy to bond two pieces together instead of just clogging it.Hello
today I found out that after 185.000 miles the check Valve in my intake manifold is gone. I took some epoxy or JB weld like stuff and just shut the hole in the intake manifold where the check Valve used to be. That was possible without removing the intake. I did that because I got a P0299 underboost and reduced engine power everytime I drove the car, and I have to drive to work every day. The car drives fine now but when I pull the dip stick at idle I get blowby coming out instead of a vacuum sucking in air. I may not have time to replace the intake for the next 1-2 weeks. What might happen if I drive it like that ? My first thought was that the Turbo will start spitting oil because crank case pressure is too high to allow the oil to drain back.
The amount of blow by was not severe, espespecially not for the milage of the engine… just about what is normal for every engine that does not have a vacuum in the crank case
What are your thoughts ?
