HELP! oil coming from somewhere

Please bare with me as I'm new too working under the hood of my car, it appears the oil is spewing from that gray piece in the picture, that line appears to be connected to my pcv valve, any ideas what this is and is this very bad or hopefully a simple fix? Thanks guys

Re: HELP! oil coming from somewhere

you are prolly going to get a grommet to put on the valve cover where the grey piece slides into. You can pick the up at autozone in the help section.

is it coming from the top of the grey piece of the bottom near the valve cover?

Where would I find this exactly in the parts store or what would I ask for... Also does this mean oil got into the intake or anything ? Or will it be okay just to get the grommet and call it okay

Ok I went through this about 5 months ago. It's the pcv valve and it does not have a rubber grommet. It is just a twist out and twist lock in. It's probably clogged and needs replaced or it's cracked. You can't find them at any parts store. Nobody has them, but ford dealers do for $35 dollars. Don't do that, buy from the place I posted below its $14.99 and free shipping. You might also change the hose leading to the pcv mine was collapsing and causing the oil to spew out too. The place I posted also has the hose and they are the only ones also who carry it. Hope this helps!

Just wipe everything down and wipe out the port when you take out the old pcv. When you install the new one take a dab of oil to the o-ring so it doesn't ever stick to the port and tear due to vibrations. You should check that hose that leads off of that and turn on your car and watch it to see if it collapses if it does and you don't replace it you will damage the pcv again.

Ordered the valve about 3 hours ago, hose looks to be in good shape but I'll check it when the valve comes in and make sure all is well. Thanks guys, feels real good to know if I have a problem everyone's so quick here to help.

The black piece that is connected to the valve that connects the valve to the hose, it seemed loose where the hose ties in not where it ties to the valve, but where the black piece connects to the hose, well I electrical taped it down to make it fit more snug/air tight, is that okay ? New valve should be here Monday

Just wanna make sure that hose is supposed to be air tight

Yes I did the same to my old one that might be why you have oil everywhere too. It should be very snug on the valve. My new hose was very snug.

I also had oil blowing all over my passenger valve cover. My leak was coming from the base of the oil filler neck. I removed the filler neck and took black RTV (only a little) and resealed it to the valve cover body

Should have listened to you, got the new valve, and now I do see that the hose is collapsing ugghhhh, now it's the labor day weekend so the new hose won't even ship out till Tuesday, is it bad to drive with it like this ? As I drive about 40 miles a day for work.
