    PCV valve check

    Was noticing some random oil leakage, saw a YouTube video and said that this would be the culprit. After replacing it, I drove to the store and when I parked the car I noticed the engine started to smoke a little and there was a lot more oil leakage. Any advice would be helpful.

    That would seem reasonable, did you try blowing through it both ways? It wouldn't be unknown for it to be assembled incorrectly of simply not working.

    one side blows thru and the other side does not allow any air to pass. I bought it off eEuroparts.

    OK the valve works. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the 3.0 V6 engine so I would advise downloading WIS and using that to guide your troubleshooting..

    The valve "should" have an arrow indicating the flow direction. It flows towards the inlet manifold.
