About the same time I noticed a high pitched vaccum like sound coming from the motor I also noticed some burning oil. Could these two be related to the pcv? How can you test the valve to see if it is working properly?

Just replace it. It's less than $10 from the dealer. My Haynes manual says to test it you remove it and shake it. It you hear it rattling, it's good...it there's no shaking sound inside, it's bad. But you have to take it off to do that anyways, mind as well put a new one in. I'm not sure if there's another way to test it (by checking for suction on a vacuum line or something).

But that being said...that little thing is a total bitch to replace. It's one of the most aggravating things i've had to do to my car. Get ready to do some de-stressing when you finish...aka, have a 6-pack handy.

yeah I hear its no walk in the park. I bought a Skunk2 IM so that might make the pcv alittle easier to replace while Im swapping manifolds. Either way I prefer a 12 pack.

Bad PCV Valves will cause oil consumpion either through external leaks or internal leaks. It's a good idea to replace it if it is bad and make sure all the lines are clear of clogs.
