My crankcase has pressurized, I know it is pretty bad, however I would like to know if any one knows the probable cause(s).

Hi there,

You may have a blocked PCV valve, but the excess pressure in the crankcase may be due to ring leakage, you will need to do a leak down test to see how bad things are.
