What is this thing on my valve cover?

99 SLK230 Kompressor and on the passenger's side of the valve cover there's a black box. It's flat on one side and round on the other. It has a hose that runs from the valve cover to it and another that runs from this box to the air filter box.
I assume this box is something along the lines of a PCV? I'm asking because my g/f's car has a lot of oil in the air intake tubes and I traced it all the way back to this box and valve cover. I need to see if I need to replace that box or what the deal is.

Thanks
Malcolm

Sounds like a PCV, but since I'm not that famliar with the SLK's, my suggestion is to post in the appropriate vehicle section (R170) a bit more down the page for more correct and faster response.

Thanks man. I was wondering about those sections down below. I couldn't find the "slk" or "230" section so I was wondering lol. How is the car an R170? is that the platform or something?

Yup. It's the platform designation.
