is it leaking where the dip stick goes into the motor or at the top where you stick the dip stick in the tube?

1.check the pcv to make sure it is working
2.replace the dip stick tube assy.

miss fire at high speed could be a coil problem, ecu or..... does the check motor light come on?

Thanks for the feedback.The leak is straight out of the top of the tube assembly where the dip slides in.i took the stick out and tied a latex glove and it blew up after a couple of miles. and yea checked PVC seemed ok it drew a vacumn as expected.tube assembly is in good shape as is the dip stick it self.Kinda leaning towards a blow by what do you think.

Did it start all of a sudden? Sounds like it could be cracked piston or ring. time for a compression check. Does yours have the PCV system or ventilation with a hose to the aircleaner and a tube running to the intake? If the latter you might want to check your aircleaner for oil too.
