So started my car up yesterday and with in a few minutes it started to smell like burning oil. Took a look around and there is oil under the high pressure pump near the valve cover. Can't tell exactly where it's comeing from, but it looked like it sprayed under pressure cause the entire area, even the bottom of the oil fill neck has oil on it. Poked around a bit. Took the oil cap off and white gunk under.. so water in the oil. I look at my catch cans, breather side is empty, pcv side is about half full with a oil/water mix. Poke some more.. PCV valve was frozen. I removed the cans, put in a new valve. But it looks like it blew oil from too much crank case pressure.
First off, why would my pcv line be collecting that much water? and is anyone else having trouble in the cold climates with water accumulation in catch cans? I've put maybe 500 miles tops on the car since installing the cans. The car just mostly sits around for weeks at a time.
