so im getting some fumes in the car so I haven't been driving it.
had the exhaust fixed tailpipes out the back new mufflers thinking it would help it didn't
new remflex header gaskets still not it.
read somewhere about fumes from the breather
so I went out and looked at my setup.
witch is tall valve covers pass side pcv to back of intake
drivers side has a breather it has oil in it and when I look into valve cover I see the rocker
so it has no baffle.
could this be where my fumes are coming from and what should I do.
I was thinking putting another pcv on the drivers side and a tee on the hose so they would both go to the intake.
what do you guys think.
thanks

Adding another PCV will not fix the situation.... get or fabricate a set simple baffle plates and install to both valve covers. BTSTDTRT here.

Nope.... baffle plates is what it needs first.... they are the front-line in separating fumes from liquid oil .... or the front-line in the separation process..... and .... it is very important even in the OEM world.

Cowl seal is in place
Trunk is not sealing correctly
Even though it has a new weatherstripping
I put a flashlight in the trunk shut the trunk I can see a large gap
Between trunk lid and weather strip at the rear lower part of trunk lid
I'll have to find something to put in there
