    Is this the stock BPV or is it an aftermarket BOV? If it is aftermarket and your not running over 20-25 PSI my suggestion is to get rid of it and reinstall a stock BPV.. However from what your saying it seems like it might be inproperly adjusted..what kind of BOV do you have? How many miles are on the vehicle? what other modifications are done to the vehicle? Have you done any recent maintaince on the vehicle? Are you having any other driving problems...idle, performance etc etc....

    i have a short ram intake and and aftermarket bov by turbo xs, the car has 72k and it has no problems running or idling and i am not not running over 20 psi. the only recent maintenence was i put in new spark plugs, but it started acting up before i changed them.

    Does the noise kind of sound like a flutter like a compressor surge?...So you dont notice ANY performance or driveability problems? Car is hitting target boost?...If this was the case with my vehicle I would install the stock BPV and prob call it a day..

    If its a hybrid or VTA it probably needs to be cleaned and oiled.
