Hey Guys

I have been asked to fix some leaks and tune up my moms 95 GT. When i recived the car it had a really rough idle and ran like poop. I pulled an o2 sensor code so i replaced both of them. and it made no difference. so then i performed a cleaning of all the sensors that i could and reset the timing to 10 deg. the car still had a rough hunting idle. so then again i waste money and buy a new not remanufactured MAF. and after installing it still ran the same.I then reset the base idle and she seemed fine for a day..... then it started a hunting idle again and stalling at stop lights. Another wierd thing that i noticed is that everytime i would drive tyhe car when i popped the hood after the dipstick was blown out about 4 inches or so and its a snug lil fit. So now this got me thinking PCV system clogged causing too much pressure and that would explain the leaks. so i pulled the pcv valve and it was not stuck but check out this screen that was under it!!!! its the one closeset to the orange pick the clean one is out og my 1990 LX,

The dipstick being blown out and crankcase gaskets and seals leaking, points to worn piston rings that are allowing combustion pressure to leak by and over pressurize the crankcase. Run a compression check on all cylinders to see if that is the problem.
The screen is probably clogged from the sheer volume of venting it is trying to do.
