Great info Tracey! Can you post a picture or someone post a picture exactly where this is located on a 2011 V6? Would like to drill this out before seeing this with my breather cap. Also how far deep are we drilling?

And this clogging PCV system was the resort to a club members car bottom end to blow open because the pressure had nowhere to go. AND he was stock 100%! Also recall a few months ago ( I think it was Baylor or Smoke1LT) someone before stating that their dip stick was smoking and kept popping out. After switching to the breather problem was solved. That's why a catch can and breather is a good buy for those modding. I just need picture also where this is located to handle it today while I'm off.
The breather is there to allow the engine to pull air in, not to relieve pressure...it will allow pressure to vent if it gets too high (mine was leaking oil)...I'll try to get mine drill out this weekend (damn weather sucks)

I guess being heavy handed on a stepper bit is out of the question?

Not my set-up, but it's at the rear of the passenger-side valve cover: (RED circle)

Is this just a 2010 and 11 LLT v6 problem or does the 2012 LFX V6 have the same issue?

It is all, but usually over time and the V8's dont have much issue unless forced induction or a big NA build. The picture of the LFX shows the location in the rear of the passenger side valve cover. You can easliy remove it by twisting and pulling up with a plyers or vace grip. Then you will see one hole in the top, two in the bottom.

So all V6's will eventually have a problem with this even without a catchcan and breather?
I am not one that likes modding the engine from the way it comes from the factoryin fear one of these could end up doing more harm than good. Putting the catch can on was even a struggle for me. I don't have a breather on mine because I still have the stock intake setup.

Yes....the tiny holes get restricted from gunk buildup over time.

After talking to Tracy and cleaning/expanding the holes - I would recommend to ANYONE that checking this every other oil change is a good idea. You can easily clean it out with brake cleaner.

What is the purpose of that barb? Is it a check valve type thing or is it just a thing used to connect the tube with the valve cover? I just want to knowits true purpose and if drilling out the holes won't affect something else like letting even more oil through to the catch can.
