It does not matter what car you drive, at 80-100K the PCV is basically clogging up.
It is not a serviceable part, the only option is replace it.

This is what it looks like internally:

I changed my CCV valve at 100K while I was doing the valve cover gasket, plugs, belts and tentioners. The CCV was completely clean and fully functional however. I found no sludge after taking it appart. I now have 120K on the car. I should have done the filter housing gasket at the same time. It is now starting to show some drips. (I have always used synthetic motor oil)
