you talking about the PCV valve? blockage of this valve can lead to overpressurization and leakage of oil from the valve cover afaik.

if ur burning alot of oil, u might like me, have fried ur piston rings. the idiot before me tried to put nitrous in his car w/out ne mods and assumed it wouldnt do nething..so now, i burn oil until i decide to take my block apart and replace them..which this summer if i dont go lazy, i will do.
