    I agree. Though the PCV system on your car only consisted of a road draft tube and a breather cap. The air draws in thru the breather cap and is drafted out the road draft tube when the car is moving. When running while sitting still it just goes out either/or of those two locations.

      Make sure you find the source of the leak first...get a decent quality black light

      and some UV dye

      Clean everything up well with a pressure washer and some degreaser, add the dye, drive it around for about 20 minutes/miles. That'll go a long way to helping you find where it's leaking.
