    Did you remove the oil filler cap, This is what it looks like http://www.autozone.com/R,2591066/vehicleId,2347801/initialAction,partProductDetail/store,2854/partType,00146/shopping/partProductDetail.htm The cap is located on top of the valve cover

    So the Valve cover is full of oil and its not draining down the passages to the crankcase, Will have to remove the valve cover and see whats clogging the passages, Here's a guide to removing the cover http://bit.ly/wz0Tt
