Oil in throttle body?

Was giving my engine bay a nice clean yesterday and decided to pull out my airbox and give it a good going over, when i pulled off the hose to the tb there was a small trickle of oil, there was also very little in the tube? I am confused how did oil get all the way back there, all i can think is that there is valve that is not closing correctly but really no idea, i do know i have a sticky valve you can hear it just. ideas?

Have a look at this link for the other day.


Seems it could PCV valve, but do you have an oiled filter?

Hope it helps you out.
