Why is there oil coming out of my valve cover breather?

The engine creates crankcase pressure and it has to vent. So it will carry the oil vapor in the gases that try to escape the engine. With the PCV valve, the oil vapor will get drawn back into the intake manifold and the breather will be the clean air inlet.

What does a breather do on valve cover?

The thought behind the breather is that you are supposed to get more fresh air flow down into the crankcase from the valve cover. This increases the cycle of oil vapor flow out of the crankcase. The added fresh air displaces the oil vapors in the crankcase with the assistance from the IM vacuum sucking it out.

How do I get rid of Blowby?

Engine blowby can be reduced by following 2 steps : Step 1 Simply add FTC Decarbonizer in with the diesel . Step 2 Use Flushing Oil Concentrate when completing an oil change. “To fix engine blow by, FTC Decarbonizer is added to the diesel at each fill, and you literally just drive the engine clean!

What causes pressure in valve cover?

Powerful spikes in crankcase pressure are a classic sign of a blown head gasket, or a cracked engine block. ... Leaking exhaust valve seals will also contribute to spikes in crankcase pressure, which are particularly noticeable because the valves are just below the oil filler cap.

Do valve covers need breathers?

Yes you do need something to vent the crankcase pressure or you'll start noticing stuff like blown out intake end seals, leaky rear main seal, dipstick blown out of the tube, etc... A hi-performance engine has more crankcase pressure so more "breather" is needed.

How do you clean valve cover breathers?

so you have the breather thats attached to the oil cap... to clean 99% of reusable filters, dawn soapy water, twirl it in the water for a minute. then do the same in the clean water. let dry. brakecleaner will clean it and it will dry faster, but it might do damage.

How do I stop the oil coming out of my valve cover breather?

If you put a valve in both sides, you block crankcase ventilation and cause excessive pressure or vacuum in the engine. You can expect lots of oil leaks and gasket failures. Make sure you have the PCV valve facing the correct direction. And, if that isn't the problem, try a new valve.

Do valve covers add horsepower?

As the name implies, a valve cover is just a cover; its function is to protect the innards from the outside elements. It has no direct impact on engine performance unless the original valve cover was damaged or cracked to begin with.

Can I replace my PCV valve with a breather?

You can replace the breather on the passenger side. That's not a big deal. That's all that hose to the air cleaner does is draw in air. You do want to keep the PCV valve.

How can crankcase Blowby be controlled?

The results obtained clearly show that the blowby emissions can be effectively controlled with the help of PCV system. However, the cross-section area of the PCV pipe has to be adjusted according to the amount of blowby gases and the inflow of ventilating air through the breather.

What is excessive Blowby?

When you combine a large cylinder bore, high cylinder pressure through turbocharging, many hours of use and marginal maintenance, excessive blowby is the result. The leakage of any combustion gases, air, or pressure into the engine's crankcase is considered blowby.

How do I know if my engine has Blowby?

However, one of the tell-tale signs of excessive blow-by is white smoke billowing from the oil-fill tube or opening on a valve cover. To check this, set the oil-filler cap upside down on the tube or opening. If it immediately blows off, there definitely is too much crankcase pressure.
