Re: V6 Crankcase breather drain
It connects to a small (and very inacessible!) pipe on the top of the oil pump drive blanking plate. I'm trying to remember how I got at this last time I did the job...but can't! You might have to remove the dog-bone bracket or maybe the power steering fluid reservoir & drip tray.
If this pipe has come off, you will get an uncontrolled air leak and the symptoms you describe most likely.
