Engines eating the oil vapor from the crank case is a good thing. It helps the enviroment by reducing polution and the oil lubricates the valve stems and the top end of the cylinders. It also keeps the crankcase clean. Sounds like everything is normal. Dont fool with it. The hesitation problem is not related to the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system.
