No sign of sludge or anything like that at all. Perhaps my use of synthetic oil and regular cleanings of the air filter helped it keep clean all this time. My car now has 122000 miles. Still in great condition.
I guess using the right lube and cleaning helps a lot in maintaining and prolonging the life of the engine.
buy a new pcv they are under 30$ and compare them....
