XF, oil in air cleaner?

Hey all,

Oil is coming up from the rocker cover into my air cleaner, on my 4.1L, Carby XF
Is this a serious or common problem?
What is the cause and is it hard to fix?

Thanks

Re: XF, oil in air cleaner?

This often happens when the engine has a lot of blow-by (piston rings,etc getting worn and too much gas passing the rings). Try doing a compression test and see how it comes up.
