About a year or so ago my coolant reservior sprung a leak (crack in the side) and the entire motor was covered by anti-freeze. Seems the plastic used on the reservior was (is) incredibly thin plastic.. Replaced the thing...all is well...so far.

Hope this helps a little.....

Mine had an oil leak same area changed these seals

Can’t really comment about the pcv valve but you should be fine if engine has no other symptoms.

For your leak it looks to be the cam cover. Maybe try checking the torque of the bolts. 71 inch pounds. Use brake cleaner to clean up the oil residue.
As for your pcv the intake check valve is still in place.

U can check the pcv hose from the engine intake to the turbo intake. There is a check valve at the turbo side that should only let air flow to turbo and not to the engine intake. You can test by removing the hose from both ends and try blowing into the hose.
