You should try to run your car hot to burn off any moisture in the oil/CCV system.
I have an oil pan heater to help pre-warm the car every morning.
Thanks for the heads up, was just reading some CCV stories. Some claim driving the vehicle once or every two weeks for 30mins should be good to vaporise the moisture in the system? I live in a condo with no receptacle near my parking spot, while the underground parking is not heated, it is significantly warmer than outside. I guess i will have to take some long drives.
