Is this true

My SC has what I would call a lot of blow by, however when I took it to a mechanic (yes is knows and understands SC's, being he has two himself) and he told me not to worry, the way the car has been set up, its going to appear that way and that what I was seeing is NOT actual blow by, and if I set the car back up to the factory set up I would never see it . 92 SC and runs like a cat that been turpentined.

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber and dumber every year?

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5.
I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

Well I'm old school, 350's 396's, 427's, 454's, 351M's 351W's and 302's and back in the day when a little oil smoke was coming out of the vale cover oil hole, it was blow by. Now I'm not a SAE mechanic but I have put an engine or two together and it looks like blow by to me. So I'm asking, is what he told me true, and do I just need to get a book on SC engines to learn the nuances of them?

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber and dumber every year?

It depends how much vapor you are seeing there, but some is normal. Are you burning oil or losing compression/power? If not, don't worry about it.

It seems to have a lot of power and the oil appears to be at the correct level inbetween oil changes. It doesn't seem to be losing oil, is what I'm treing to say. It just looks like a lot of blow by. IMO.

Well its hard to say without seeing the car, but look at it this way. If it is blowby, the solution is a complete engine rebuild. If the car runs well, has plenty of power, and is not using oil or making any weird noises, then there's no reason to go through all that work.

Well, that's what I wanted to know. I was looking for a second opinion and I appear to have one now. Thanks.

Both PCV Valves should come in on the Cold Air side.

You may just be seeing a change in the weather. Less residue when its warmer.
