I found a vaccuum leak at the front of the engine at the t-connection hose at the center of the intake manifold. Pressed the t-connector onto the intake and that sealed it. Now mild suction at the oil dip stick and at the oil filler cap. Less RPM change when dip stick is pulled out or the oil cap is removed. I am still going to have the OSV checked by the dealer or independent tech this week. Also, I let the car idle for 10 minutes in my garage, I noticed white smoke only, no blue smoke from the exhaust that I could see. I will try to keep updating the thread as I progress in this endeavor to find a solution.
