Should the PCV valve rattle? I took mine off to "inspect" it because im getting alot of oil blow by, and it rattles. If you look down inside the valve and shake it you can see stuff moving around as well. Just wondering if this is normal if the valve is really shot. Any feedback is appreciated!

Yes, it should rattle. Its a check ball that only allows pressure to go one way. if it did not rattle, that means it bad. One solution for oil consumption through the pcv is to convert the pcv system to the ls6 style. Another way is a catch can. Mine used some oil through there, but it was not bad and I know that is normal for most ls motors.
