Oil leak normal? See pics...

Mom's 2002 6 cyl Taurus is leaking oil from the hose involving her PCV valve. Was wondering if the amount of oil leak pictured here is normal...





Thanks for the help!

I would think it was more oil fumes with engine breathing rather than oil leak and nothing serious with that year of Taurus .Would be advisable to check / replace PCV valve and hoses if needed and should help matters .

Agree with R.S. the elbow going into intake is probably dried out. The dealer should have or be able to get one including the PVC valve. I would recommend replacing and will resolve the issue.
