have not fixed this yet ,i am ordering the parts today ! the dealership told me it would be a in the near future expense of 1,600.00 dollars in VA Beach, VA. I now have 61000. miles and have started to here the whistle :/ so time to fix .Hopefully cams seals are not leaking ,I am not loosing alot of oil since my oil change which at 56,000 is due again at 63000 miles where the oil was filled to top of the fill line on dipstick tube ,it has only leaked down to half way inbetween the botton and top fill line .planning on changing my oil,fule filter ,plugs ,plug wires and brakes now and starting to change the oil every 3000 to 5000 miles after this oil change and oil trap repair.I will be doing this repair my self then take to dealership to have computer updates checked,belt replaced and good look over car to make sure everything else including cam seals are good .I am a 35 year old femal .

Didn't think I had any problems, but mechanic at car dealer said this should be replaced...wasn't pressurizing correctly?
