Oil in the intake

Gang, has anyone gotten oil in your intake manifold? I found a small puddle but not sure where it would be coming from.

*scratching head

It's most likely from the PCV system and/or breather hose. It is very common.

So will I have to replace the PCV valve? I never had oil until I replaced the old on for another. It is possible for a valve to be bad, too.

breather hose, hmmm
