I have a SS-V with the L98 engine

I was cleaning the throttle body and the air intake and I noticed that the Intake Manifold was loaded with oil inside.

I have been losing oil every couple of thousand KM.

Is this a PCV issue?
Is there a fix for it?

TIA

U can spray upper engine cleaner into the intake with the car running to clean the crap out of the inlet manifold
