    Its like geez I'd love to show you how to do this, but I really can't be bothered, so just undo the widget at the end of this whatchamacallit hose thingy and be sure and like my video.

    The reason I posted the pcv question was because occasionally my tundra would belch a cloud of blue oil smoke out of the tail pipes. It would happen maybe once every two weeks or maybe once a day usually at cold startup. The dealer where I bought it said the valve seals were shot and with removing the supercharger and all it would cost me $3200.00 plus to fix. I have a strong automotive background and knew this was bull. I've seen pcv valves stick open before and cause this symptom. I was looking for a pcv in the rocker/cam covers but it's under the intake manifold in the front of the engine. Not hard to change once you find it. Since I changed it, no more blue smoke. Valve seals which are bad stay bad and don't cause occasional blue smoke. On the customer satisfaction email survey I received from the dealership I recommended that the tech who diagnosed the problem be restricted to the wash rack.
