Could it be the PVC problem or something else?
2003 6i with only 64,000 miles. I can't believe it is having any problems but I checked my oil a few days ago and there was hardly any oil on the dipstick. Changed it around 62,000 (actually about 4 to 5 months ago) and I know I should have checked it more often but it always slips my mind. Put 2 quarts in and showed it was full on the dipstick. I also noticed my mileage has gone down because I am getting less miles per tank than I usually get. Filter is clean and no smoke. Is this the PCV issue or could it be something else? I also noticed over the past few months if I don't let the car warm up long enough in the morning there is some surging (like tapping the gas repetitively) when I go a little uphill (slight hill close to my house). After that there are no problems and if I let it warm up for long enough it doesn't happen.
Can anyone offer some advice to both of the problems? I am almost certain that the oil problem is the PCV issue but I wanted some more opinions.
