Hello.

I have an oil leak in my 2013 chevy Cruze eco 1.4 turbo. It appears to be on the passengers side of the car and hitting the belts as I have oil residue on the top of the engine cover. Each day after driving it’s smells like hot oil and if I pop the hood I see a small trickle of smoke near the thermostat behind a metal plate.

I plan to check the PCV to see if it’s still working correctly (as many people say to check that). My question is could the PCV be causing this external leak? Or if anybody has any other ideas. Also does anybody know where I can find the corogated tube that connects the manifold to the turbo. I accidentally broke it as I was changing the thermostat

thank you

Yes it it likely the PCV system is pushing the seals out with pressure: How-To: Replace CPASV (Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid Valve) Seals

Thank you very much for the great info!! I will give this a try and hope all is well!
No problem, so at most you need:

new intake manifold/pcv fix kit
possibly new valve cover
corrugated hose
CPASV seals

at the least:

corrugated hose
CPASV seals

Keep us updated (y)
