The early production versions of the Crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve where prone to failure resulting in loss of turbo boost and oil seepage. The gaskets on the valve also have a tendency to leak over time as they dry out and get brittle. Not to worry though as changing the PCV valve or gasket can be done in well under an hour with a minimum of tools.

If you do not have an after market air induction system you will need to remove the engine cover.

You will need to remove the vacuum line from the intake manifold to the crankcase ventilation valve (red arrows).

While the gasket that seals the crankcase ventilation valve is not as critical as a fuel seal it is always a good idea to replace it (red arrow).
