Guys. His cars are fuel injected so it's not possible that anything added to the fuel is building up in the throttle body. I'm pretty sure it's the pcv valve sucking in vapourized oil and it's building up. Get a catch can. Problem solved. To clean

I have no idea why some people would not drain the oil once a year and change it. Oil is 12 dollars a jug, even if you have an oil burner drain it once a year and start again.
