As far as I know the oil separator on my vehicle is the CCVs on the top of the valve covers, I could be wrong. I was told that they were replaced recently. I checked them myself and they seem to be ok no tears cracks or other problems that i can see. It seems odd that the oil in the vent tubes is very clean and I just changed the oil about 500 miles ago. Seems to be getting past somehow. Im wondering if excessive vaccum from the engine being sludged up inside could cause this?
