Was the screen/filter in place under the PCV valve?

You need that to help keep the oil out of the intake.
The LRS above the picture is a link to the product.

The valve cover or the fitting in the intake?

Ok, if it is dripping from that fitting, then you should remove it, clean it and reinstall it with some thread sealant.


The oil is probably coming from your PCV not having a screen/filter in it.

It replaces the weak factory plastic quadrant.

Yeah I would definitely get an aftermarket quadrant..I replaced my clutch,and clutch cable without changing the stock quadrant and within a couple of days the stock plastic one was wearing out bad enough to cause 2-3 inches of play in the pedal..so instead of adjusting the cable I just swapped quadrants since then ive had no issues

Almost half way to the floor..the aftermarket clutch is stiffer so it put more stress on the garbage stock quadrant..the stock ones are self adjusting,but instead of doing that I just replaced it after some helpful info I got from this forum..
