Angry Oil Problem

Hello I need some help. I have a 06 cobalt ss/sc and i recently changed the valve cover gasket cause it was leaking oil. Well now when I race there is oil coming out of the oil fill cap. What should i do? Is there too much pressure in the crankcase? Is a valve clogged somewhere? I searched for a pcv valve and it does not list one anywhere! Please help!!

What are your mods?

I know it was a known problem to have to much pressure built up in the crankcase.

ZZP sells a valve cover breather- http://zzperformance.com/ecotec/valv...-breather.html

What about the bypass valve? I cant seem to find another one to buy? Do these cars have a PVC Valve anywhere?

Sorry about the delayed response. I have been working to much.

Oil in the intake is common. No PCV valve.

I don't think the bypass valve would cause that. Check your boost solenoid though. May be stuck shut, as to why youre seeing the extra boost.

And they don't sell the bypass valve anymore. You need to get one from a 3800 series car. ZZP sells em.

No problem bud!
And no, the oil just come from the breather line. Its common. Nothing to worry about.

Install a oil catch can to help catch the oil spilling due to crank pressure.
