Get it to the shop NOW & have your oil seperator replaced! I was told,.."had u not stopped immediately when the check engine light came on You could have caused MAJOR ENGINE Damage! I saw a post where someone paid $2500 for the Same work , that I was charged $789 for by a PORSCHE dealership in Atlanta! The part is only $100 $ rest for labor! I found a video on the web "How to DIY" & it REALLY didn't look like so much work! It's not like u have to take the engine apart to get to it! BUT!!! I'm a woman & this is a "MANS JOB!".. Kinda like a man leaves "mopping&dusting" to a WOMAN!!! ha!..just sayin!...GOOD LUCK! Sign me,.."Been THERE&..SO GLAD I didn't Blow my engine!!!" ;)
