I do have a minor oil leak from somewhere but haven't investigated yet. I just picked up a valve cover gasket and oil filter housing gasket the other day thinking they were my problem, but this car spent most of it's life in Michigan and has 200k so all signs are pointing this way! Also, my dipstick gets oil all over it all the way up to the top, so I'm suspecting a plugged hose down there, but I never lose oil between changes. Does this sound right to anyone?

thanks
It might be one of your Oil Separator hose, maybe its clogged,
