Quite some time ago I did the emissions delete, got rid of the SAI pump, combi valve and all other lines. I had put a hose on the crankcase breather, and routed it out to the atmosphere down next to the tranny. Today it started dripping oil out of this tube. It's been running like this for at least a year with no issues. I noticed the drip when pulling down my driveway, and there was a drop every few inches. It only drips when the car is running, any ideas what would cause oil to drip from the crankcase breather? I'm thinking maybe a bad seal somewhere inside the block, or something related?

I think that is pretty normal, the PCV system will expel some oil. That is the purpose of those oil catch cans, to catch that stuff. Being a little overfull of oil can have an affect, though.

Thanks Walky. I just had an oil change on it. I had my brother change the oil yesterday. I just checked the level, its about a quart overfilled. I am going to drain a quart or so out.
