Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
How do I check pcv valve to know if it is operating correctly? I have a sudden engine oil leak coming from near the rear of engine and is a considerable amount. It may be main seal or oil pan leak. Thank you.

with the engine running. there should be vaccuum at the valve. it removes excessive crankcase pressure and re burns it in the intake system. if it is bad, it will cause a leak and the rear main is a common leak point.
