Must be something wrong with the Positive Crankcase Ventilation PCV system, may the new valve is stuck.

Agree with ron1004....your positive crankcase ventilation system, or 'foul air system' is plugged someplace. Remember, everytime a piston goes downward in your block it is creating pressure in the crankcase. This pressure needs to go some place. PCV was developed to take care of this, as was bay to bay breathing between cylinder bank pairs. For some reason your system seems to be plugged up......
