    hi guys, i belive that my PCV Valve isnt working due to air pushing out of my oil filler cap when removed, is there an up-market/ after market one i can put on my car? any ideas, cheers

    No after market valve as such dude... just replace all the split/worn bits... or do a PCV delete..

    For the pressure to be pushing the oil cap up then something is seriously blocked and/or you have some bad ring wear.... you can test the theory by undoing the PCV pipe from the top of the rocker... see if the engine is breathing heavy...

    This is the stuff under the inlet of a facelift S3...
