    I am getting some leaking from PCV hose #2 on the valve cover.
    I have replace the hose and even put a clamp on it and I am getting oil leaking out around the hose.
    I replaced the PCV valve.
    Is it that the motor is just getting tired and there is some blow by?

    When I replaced the grommet my seep-through stopped and that area is now clean.

    Before hand it looked like yours though. Is that a new grommet, and if so is definitely in good shape?

    naw not worn out you just need a new hose, it likely has a crack in it,


    Nator, the grommet is on the other PCV hose where the valve is. no grommet on this side,

    The PCV hose is new. The old one did it too, that is why I replaced it and then put a clamp on it.
