    I have an oil leak in both throttle bodies on my 456. The oil drips down onto the manifolds and smokes badly. Also getting some blow-by out the exhaust. Any ideas what is causing this? Attached is a picture.

    Thanks!

    Do a compression and leak down on your engine when it's at operating temperature. That looks to me like a blowby problem, or a clogged P.C.V. system. I would have it looked at ASAP. Are you using more oil then normal?

    Compression and leakdown are fine. I'm thinking PCV valve problem. There are two PSV valves correct? Both electronic?

    Car has not been consuming oil up until now.

    Thanks!
