J-tube blocked / valve cover and oil pan pressurized
OK, I've nearly toubleshot my 103 to the point of reasonable oil consumption. Just a simple queston: Why would a prior owner plug the J-tube that vents the valve cover to the intake manifold? The car has no PCV valve. Compression is consistant at 155psi across all cylinders. Car does not smoke disproportionatly at start up so I do not suspect stem seals.
