Check the oil when the engine is cold. Make sure it's at the correct level.

========================

The Positive Crack Valve (PCV) is partial blocked.

This is under $10 item. You should change it.

The location of the PCV is on the top (or near top) of the valve cover.

Replace it and the oil/smoke will reciculate back to the correct path (back to the valve cover).

Your engine breather system is blocked....this means that the only way that the compression caused on ignition that is getting past the piston rings and into the block can escape is via the dipstick tube.
Check breather for kinks and some have filters ensure that these are not blocked

Blow-by will cause high pressure in the the engine as the air looking to escape from the motor. every time the engine come up on compression or exhaust stroke it create air pressure. blow by can be the rings around pistons are worned and the air can blow by the piston back down to the oil sump or the valves is not seated properly causing the air to escape through the valves back through the engine, both issue can cause high pressure build up. oil over filled can create high pressure also and can blow a seal. 1st I would have compression test on all 6 cyclinder done to see if all the cylinder has the correct amount pressure, this will give you an idea if the rings and the valves working properly. hope that help some

Make sure the hose connected to the PCV valve is connected at both ends and has vacuum. It is better to replace rather than clean a PCV valve as they are inexpensive. It sounds like your engine is building up internal crankcase pressure so a new PCV valve would be a good place to start. The "egg" smell could be that the catalytic converter/s are going bad and need replaced.

Oil not lasting to next oil change. I have the oil changed every 3,000 miles at the dealership where I bought the car. For the last two years I have been forced to add oil before the 3,000 maintenance oil...


adding a little oil between changes is not unusual, depends on how much, are you checking your oil yourself ?? if not start !! check it in the morning once a week, if its near the full mark refuse anyone telling you to add, ( there are some stations that pay their employees more to sell oil) on the safe side put in a new pcv valve, its onle a couple of bucks

Oil problem


Somehow that crankcase is being pressureized. You say the pcv is not blocked, but I would replace and check again. The next step is quite expensive and I would want to rule out that pcv for the 10 bucks that it might cost.
