Blowing oil out the breather

Recommended Posts

I have had this happen a couple of times now and it's getting to be a pain. What happens is the breather filter is always wet with oil and it runs out and down all over every thing. I did about a mile of 58 mph, 6000 rpm and then put it on the trailer and notice it had dropped oil all over under the engine. Earlier in the ride I came down some hills and worked the engine in compression and was getting clouds light blue smoke. I'm worried that I may need a ring job because of the blow by and smoke. And earlier, oil had been sucked into the manifold. To protect the manifold from getting filled up with oil again, the tube that goes from the valve cover to the manifold has a bottle in the line with vac coming off the top and line from the valve cover going to the bottom of the bottle. To protect my frame from getting oiled, I plan to run a hose from the breather down and out, maybe through another catch bottle.

Any ideas or suggestions? Please.

Take the oil fill cap off and see if there is blow by coming out. Take the cap off and tape a rag over the opening. Take it for a drive and see if anything comes out, bottom & top. Sounds like blow by! Could also be valve stem seals. Run a compression test!

On my 09 they have the hose from the valve cover going directly into the air intake hose past the air filter.see photo

That's interesting, no separator, just dump it into the intake manifold ahead of the butterfly valve. I think that would make for a lot of smoke on mine. Can you take another photo from the seats looking backwards. 2680519580104110397omcpWr_th.jpg

This was taken Oct 08, It happened again Sat 04-17-10, so it's been a problem all along. Think I can get any warranty on it???? :)

Thanks

that picture i put the link to shows it pretty good,you can see the black hose going from the valve cover to the chrome intake tube.The small hose goes from the valve cover to the intake manifold.

This probably probably stems from their poor air filter. It sounds like a ring job to me snowbird

Have you had any luck with this? Do you have a compression problem?

I haven't done anything about this yet, haven't checked my compression, don't have a tester, just a few weird things to contain any oil that blows by.

I'll get around to working on it sooner or later and will post what ever I find out.
