The part you are referring to is called a "Flame Trap" - it is part of the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system. When it fails it causes too much suction in the crankcase, usually resulting in a nasty squeal or howl at idle that goes away when you remove the oil filler cap. Replacing it requires removing the intake manifold. My dealer quoted $450.00 for the job ($100 for parts and 3 hours labor).
Under the intake manifold!
the oil dipstick is located between the exhaust manifold
You can tell when a manifold tuning valve is bad when oil is leaking through it. You also can tell by inserting the dipstick into the valve and seeing if oil comes out through the dipstick.
replacing the fittings
Not likely. In fact, the backyard mechanics' test for a blown head gasket is to drip some oil from the dipstick onto the (hot) manifold. If it bubbles, there's water in the crankcase. Another sign is white smoke in the exhaust.
The PCV valve is located in the camshaft cover,in the crankcase breather chamber or in the hose which connects the crankcase breather chamber to the intake manifold
To find the positive crankcase ventilation valve, look on the right bank of the engine. The valve is located beneath the intake manifold.
Positive Crankcase Ventilation Answer 2: The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system reduces hydrocarbon emissions by scavenging crankcase vapors. It does this by circulating fresh air from the air cleaner through the crankcase, where it mixes with blow-by gases and is then rerouted through a PCV valve to the intake manifold. - Haynes Repair Manual #36071
No, but your crankcase should be vented anyway. If your getting coolant in the crankcase it is getting in from a bad head gasket or cracked head or bad intake manifold gaskets. If you don't fix it soon your engine will be toast.

If there is oil coming from the exhaust manifold it generally indicates a bad valve stem seal or a worn out engine. (too much crankcase pressure)
A Pachner move is any of a set of ways of replacing a triangulation of a piecewise linear manifold by a different triangulation of a homoeomorphic manifold.
By replacing the whole gasket.
Under the intake manifold next to the orange dipstick tube. on the 1.8t that is.
do i need to change the manifold when replacing thermostat
Possibly a hose is broken or disconnected on the crankcase ventilation system?Intake Manifold?
air leak to inlet manifold check small hoses the back of the inlet manifold if the hose is blocked with carbon clean it or replace and clean crankcase breather all of it.
On the drivers side of the engine near the exhaust manifold.
i am replacing the starter on olds 1995 aurora
Cracked intake manifold...
A bistellar flip is another term for a Pachner move, any of a set of ways of replacing a triangulation of a piecewise linear manifold by a different triangulation of a homeomorphic manifold.
That is a very COMMON PROBLEM WITH those engines. You need to replace the intake manifold gaskets to fix that problem.
For the 6 speed transmission the dipstick is located behind the radiator support, to the left of the air cleaner box. The dipstick is a round yellow plastic towards the bottom of the transmission. The exhaust manifold is slightly above it, so be careful not to burn yourself.
