I took off the pvc valve and tubing to my 99 pontiac grand am v6 for a month. My friend says I should change my oil because there could be water in my oil? Is this true?How can I tell that there is water in my oil? And what should I do? Finally have new valve and tubing.

Do you
have the same problem?

Why did you remove the pcv and did you plug the port?

Running that long with a massive vacuum leak may have brought moisture into the system. I would repair this asap before you damage the motor further.
