Quick question, How do you get the orifice out?
I Don't want to break it. Do you have to release a plastic clip? or just pull.

The hose that connects to the orrice has a clip, andyou should be able to pinch it and pull out and revealing the actual orifice.

I was able to remove the orifice with some pliars pulling up with a jiggle back and forth motion. Its in there pretty good so it make take a few yanks.

Also, get it properly seated and flush when putting back in. Mine didnt want to go back in very easily.

Got it out, put a little grease on the larger part and it went right back in easy.

Went to the gas station and put 3 quarts of oil in, she started running better, but today there are still these fumes coming out. I hope my engine isn't on it's last leg. Any insight would help!
One other thing I didn't see mentioned in this thread, many times the dipstick will give a false reading on these engines if it has been driven recently. It is best to check the oil level when the engine has been off for awhile.

so for those with the breather cap, it is recommended to still do this and drill the hole bigger?? I was confused for a minute and thought this was part of the house that gets capped off when you have a breather, but I think I was wrong and this orifice is on the other hose right?? passenger side? I have had no problems with oil leaks or oil consumption but I mean it cant hurt to drill the hole bigger to prevent any clogging.

Yes its on the pass rear valve cover, its best to take it out and see if it shows signs of clogging.
