How exactly? Where should I check?
I think is located in the side engine cover. You can remove the pcv and shake it.. you should hear a rattle noise. And blow it. It shouldn't be clogged.

X5 on loosening the rear main cap prior to installing a new seal. Less chance of doinking it. Also check for the cam plug leaking. It drips off the passenger side main bearing cap bolt. If you blow corn starch on the block, sometimes you can see the oil trace if the rest of the block is clean.
