Not like your car's gonna explode after 3 weeks. . . .
A BOV is like when you have a cold.
You sneeze, the car sneezes, too. You can do everything you normally do when you don't have a cold, just not as well. Same for the car. Your cold will eventually cause boogers and snotz, a BOV will do the same (just fouling the plugs).
A cold won't kill you, but it will make you feel like crap.
Rich oil =
