Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am with a 2.4L 4 Cylinder. I was driving it home from work this winter about 3 months ago and got a strong smell of oil coming from the engine compartment. I opened the hood to see that about a quart of oil had blown out through the dipstick. The engine was just rebuilt so I took it back to the dealer. They said that the PCV Valve was plugged due to condensation building up and freezing it. I was also told that this was because of making short trips to town(10 miles or less) After three months the problem has now returned and it is blowing oil out somewhere in the intake area towards the front of the engine. I would like someone else's opinion on what the problem could be, Thanks
The only way that your going tooget condensation is if your got water in the system and with antifreeze it wouldnt freeze anyway their ripping you!!!
the problem is a cracked head or blowen head gasket not letting the vaccume thru too work the pcv valve!!!
