Thanks for all the details, Keman. I'd been scratching my head about how
PCV would work when the manifold keeps flip-flopping from negative to
positive pressure. Makes perfect sense now! Sort of :P

Interestingly enough, this whole thing was part of what my last dealer
replaced about 4-5 months ago. I wonder if they cut some corners here
