    Ignore the slow speed fisherman.  How many miles are on that engine?  It looks like there's enough blow-by past the piston rings that the PCV valve can't handle it and it's backing up into what's supposed to be the air inlet into the crankcase.  Try changing the PCV valve- - - -it could be clogged and not functioning properly.

    That would be my guess too.  A new PVC valve and adding a catch can should fix that right up, and the catch can will prevent it in the future.  I'd also remove the throttle body and clean all of the metal on the inside of it with brake cleaner.
    No good deed goes unpunished...

    The inside of the pvc valve can move when shaken? Mabey not bad? Also the hose connection is splitting a bit. Im going to call and see if the parts store has one and change it and see.

    I switched out the pvc for new and snipped the end pf the hose for a better fit. That vaume hose needs replaced. Maybe in the morning. Bad time a day for driving here.
