The yellow gunk is a mix of water and oil. It is likely from mostly short trips where the engine isn't getting hot enough to get rid of the condensation that develops in cooler weather. Try wiping the yellow gunk off and take a highway cruise to get it dried out. Then see if the gunk comes back right away.

By the way, is the PCV valve clean and in good shape?

It is on the passenger side of the throttle body on top of the intake manifold. It is a twist on/off.
