slugging in modern fuel injected engines is extremely rare regardless of mileage or pvc performance.the pvc valve uses engine vacuum to draw in crankcase gases that build up during the combustion process.theses gases are drawn into the combustion chambers to be re burned.the valve is designed to close should the engine backfire which could ignite the gases  what color is this slug?if it is milky or grayish/white.this cold be the water pump leaking coolant into the oil.the pump is driven by the timing chain.if it leaks externally it will run down the block strait into the oil.
