Default 94 Prelude h23a

Hi all,
This will be my first post to this group =). My question is, I just got
my front seal done a month ago. Now every so often when I'm idling or
stopped at a red light, with the blower motor on, I catch a whiff of oil. my
friend said (he's never owned a Honda, don't even know if he's driven one)
that it may be my pcv valve. Can anyone with greater knowledge than my
friend or I give me some insight?

Thanx all
Paul

Anything dripping out of it while parked overnight? Have you looked at
the engine to see if there are any leaks? Check the valve cover area
where oil might leak on to the hot exhaust manifold. Oil pressure sender
might be leaking. It's above the oil filter. bob

If they changed the oil at the same time, it's probably just the oil
they slopped on your exhaust pipe. Happens all the time. Look with a
flashlight, after dark, hot engine.

It doesn't seem to be leaving any spots anywhere. I haven't actually done a
visual inspection yet. I'll check it out tomorrow, it's just been so dang
cold around here lately!
