Saved some money on CCV being proactive

So my oil sep. Hoses were fine but I noticed some oil on the valve cover cover. I replaced the oil fill cap. Still noticed it. Pressure tested and it was slightly higher then recommended. Anyway I decided to look for a choke point in the system before failure and save my cvv valve and vcg and what not. I pulled the dipstick tube where the oil reenters the crankcase and it was totally blocked. I used brake Cleaner and an E string (low e) to clear it and now the systems pressure is normal and only cost an oring.
