No, but a hot motor is a hot motor. It'* perfectly fine to wait until it'* cooled down so you don't get burned on anything when you are leaning in and working on it.

As long as the engine isn't so hot it will burn you while back there, that should not be a problem.

Make sure you note the O-ring and don't lose it or forget to put it back when replacing the valve. Do you know how to check your PCV?

Edit: sheesh. to slow again...lol.

You're in Jacksonville? Maybe we can hook you up with another Southeast member for a quick look-see.

Shake your PCV valve. Does it move around inside and make a rattling sound?

RE: the oil on your frame...to follow up with what willwren is asking...can you see anywhere that looks like the oil might be coming from?

Do you have a digital camera?
