That would be the PCV orifice inside the camshaft cover. P1101 is the code that one throws per bulletin. Unfortunately, P1101 can be a lot of things. As can P2097. I don't usually lean toward carbon buildup on the valves as a fix since it hasn't translated from hypothesis to solution yet in gen9. But... this is the best candidate I have seen for carbon cleaning considering that code combo. Google "intake carbon cleaning service" and your nearest large city. You will get results for a lot of different services saying "intake valve carbon clean" "carbon cleaning" "fuel system service" "Fuel injection service" etc. You have to look at what the service provides. You do not want something dumped in the tank. You want to see references to Direct Injection, GDI, TDI and carbon removal from intake valves. You can narrow down by google review rating and friends and family recommendations if possible. The best shop for intake valve cleaning around me specializes in Euro cars and will do some modern domestics.Thanks man I sure will after looking at several posts on this forum it sounds like the valve cover might be plugged. After this heavy thunderstorm passes I'll take a few photos
Need clarity on that. On top of the black appearance cover or under the appearance cover/above the camshaft/valve cover? Around the spark plugs?I do have oil on the top of the cover where the cap goes and im sure when I change it I don't spill it could that be a more serious problem?
Possible. Excessive crankcase pressure usually a comes from the clogged PCV orifice in the camshaft cover or more rare but worse - bad piston ring(s). There are about a dozen forum owners that have had the pcv clog. I haven't read a mention of a squeak or squeal when it occurs in the 1.5. However, the hybrid 1.8 can get a similar issue and they frequently report a squeak sound.I'll take a closer look and see. Would excessive crankcase pressure make a squeaky sound at times during idle? Kinda sounds like a belt or a pulley only real problem I've had with this car was the vacuum pump part #(1268-4050)
