oil in plenum

hi

when i had the rear of the car up on ramps checking the exhaust, and also building myself a cold air box i noticed oil coming out the front of the throttle body, there was enough of it ho make a stream and drip out onto the ground for as long as i was working there (couple hours)

the car seems to be running great though, the pod filter sounds wicked , car revs out heaps easier as well. its a shame i cant mount it at the front of the car though

what do ya reckon

Rings, valve stem seals maybe

thanks

Ok

G'day Red,

This is normal operation in all EA to ED series of vehicles fitted with the MPI manifold.The oil comes from the breather which is the big long hose at the back of the rocker cover this travels down to the throttle body onto a brass fitting.Due to the throttle body being the lowest point, the oil comes out as a vapour into the hose but by the time it gets to the throttle body its a liquid and thus contaminants the pleumn.All that is needed is that everytime you service your car, clean out your intake hose and throttle body.In the worse case it could be 'blow by' if there is alot of oil constinantly.Keep a eye on it and it should only put about a T spoon over 6 months.

Hope this helps.

Cya Lukey.

Overoiled reusable pods and filters can also cause this....and ruin the MAF sensor and interfere with the throttle plate.
