Yeah its normal. That is why they need replaced because they get all gunked up. If you shake the old one and it rattles it was still working, if it doesnt it was bad. This the reason a lot of V8 guys buy catch cans for their rigs, but it really isnt necessary for our wimpy engines
Another easy and quick thing you should think about doing is cleaning out your throttle body. The correct way is to take it completely off, but I just wiped it out as best I could with it on...
