do you have a breather cap on the passenger side?  you need to take air in on the passenger side.

 

if you just have a hose going directly to the pcv then its probably sucking up oil like a straw.  you should put a T inline with a small opening to allow some fresh air in.  you want to keep the air inlet small so you still suck crank case gasses, you can run it to the air cleaner which would be best.

 

also dont forget when you pull a bunch of stuff off you get oil and grease spread around, it might just need a good washing.

If any part of the PCV system vents to the atmosphere, you are likely to get nasty oil smells.

 

Or, as was pointed out, it could just be burn-off from parts that got oil on them.

my passenger side is ran to the air breather so i should "T" it off at the pcv valve and run it into my air breather?
