I believe one of the guys asked the question, I have been wondering but there is no answer. (Unless my dumb butt missed it). Instead of deleting the PCV hose on left side could one just add a Catch can to prevent oil from entering the intake thus preventing build up?

Can you tell me where I can get the plugs from? When I try to look them up I only seem to find then overseas.

So I got the same situation as described by all users, a lot of oil consumed by the N12 motor, as I read the caps 0361S4 would do the trick, but I did not find the information regarding this particular engine, all the info is about the turbo version (N14) *hope I did understand it right*.

So the question is if anyone has installed the caps on the N12 engine, did you have any problems, @Czar I understand that you are the specialist in this domain does it have the second PCV valve also? Hope you are still active on the forum.

Not sure if the N12 has the PCV like the N14 engines, but I wouldn't recommend deleting the PCV as it's needed for proper engine running.

If the car is consuming oil, it could be for lots of other reasons. Check the valve cover and if it has the PCV system try replacing the valave cover or buy the PCV repair kit.

Google "N12 PCV membrane".
