I ended up having the crankcase vent valve replaced. There is a video on bavauto if you want to DIY. I got it fixed at an Indy shop for 600 p&l. The parts aren't the expensive part for this, it was four hours of labor that drove the cost up. Make sure you get the cold weather replacement if you're up north.
