See if your engine has a PCV valve and if it does, replace it.

You probably have a front or Rear enging seal leaking. Check where you Park and see if there is oil residue. If no leakage detected you may have a Valve Seal defective. Have someone check your Spark Plugs to see which one may be fouling out because of oil seapage. This will narrow the search on the leaky valve seal.
