I found out with my old 94 Ranger 2.3L that the oil breather does not have a filter element, which causes oil to "naturally" (as Ford puts it) accumulate in the throttle body and air intake hose. You can get an inline breather element at any parts store for a few bucks and install it on the breather line without harming anything, and this will stop. Cheers.

Might want to change o2 sensor's, If they are not sending the right single its tell the computer to dump fuel. 1988 was using a fuel density system.
(1989 came out with Mass air flow system)
Check this
I think it might have a TFI module that's not working right. Located under distributor. Its gray and about 4" long and if equip, you need a 4 or 5.5 mm tool to unbolt it. This was a common thing back in the 80's. Its been so long I can't remember if the 4.9 straight 6 had it or not.
T- Thick
F- Film

SOURCE: fuel pump

Hi I am Vortash you do seem to be having a few problems with this one , and it does sound a little like the fuel pump and ther is an easy way to check you are getting adequate pressure from the pump .. without a pressure meter .. take a small balloon ( you know the type hard to blow small and can cause you to bust a blood vessel trying to inflate them ideal for this ) place it over the end of the fuel pipe and tape it on tight .. remove the lead from the ignition coil so the vehicle will not start .. crank the vehicle and watch the ballon if it starts to inflate then the Pressure is fine . now dont forget this ballon will now be full of gasoline when you remove it so dont break it and have a bowl or. bucket handy .. and when you take it off also remember there is going to be a good deal of pressure in it ?.
Ok so if the ballon inflated the pump is ok if id didnt insist the garage do a fuel pressure test .
I have a cousin who works for Ford here in the UK it is 2.40 am in the morning here now so I will ask him tomorow or later today lol as I have heard of a fault like this before and it was not the fuel system but i want to check with him first .. Regards Vortash

Why does my 2004 Lincoln ls v6 sputter at 50 to 60 mph

Hi,I have a 2004 as we'll,bought it used about 6 months ago,he said he had new valve cover gaskets replaced,our vehicles are know to have leaky gaskets,the mechanic that did the job,didn't put one of the hoses back on right,it put in it in a bind,and cause it to crack and leak,I found one on ebay for about 50 bucks,if you open your hood,to the left are 2 hoses,right at the end is where it cracked and started sucking air,the other end goes around the engine and connects to the pvc valve on the back side,I also replaced the pvc,but the old one was still good,with the leak,it cause the engine to not have any power,also if you look on both sides down on engine,is it leaking oil,if so then the valve cover gaskets are leaking,their's a good you tube video showing you how to do it,plus changing the plugs you have to remove the intake to get to them,whoever came up with this design needs a spanking,lol,let me know if your hose is bad,I will show you where to get a new one,your check engine light may come on,mine did.

1988 Lancer, 5 speed, 4G15 engine. Blow by hose fills the aircleaner with oil.\r\nHave replaced PVC valve, measured & honed bore, replaced rings, vacumed checked valves, replaced valve stem seals....

This problem is usually the result of worn rings but since you already did that, then check the passage that the PCV valve is connected to. It might be clogged, causing a restriction. If that isn't it, then drill a hole at least a quarter inch in size in the top of an old valve cover filler cap and install it. Drive the vehicle and see if things improve. If they do, then check to make sure that you have the correct PCV valve installed.

I have a 2003 BMW 325i. We had the oil changed and had discovered a drop of oil under the car the day before. The repair shop replaced our oil pan plug because it was cracked. Today we have 5 or 6 drops...

It could well be a PVC valve. The PVC plumbing on e46s is not one of BMW's best designs, and it needs to be cleaned out every 100k miles if not sooner.
Not likely a rear main. I have never seen a failed rear main seal on a 6 Cyl BMW.

Are you sure it is not power steering fluid? I would be surprised if a 2003 were not leaking a little power steering fluid by now if the hoses have not already been replaced.
Another common oil leak is the hose that feeds oil to the VANOS.
If the leak is toward the rear of the engine, I would look for a valve cover gasket leak.
The service engine soon light is almost certainly unrelated to the oil leak.

2001 F350 4 wheel drive. I think the brake hose is bad. I have the hose but was wondering the right way to change it myself

Is there a brake fluid leak? If you already have the hose, you obviously know where the leak is, so to make this easier, spray the connections with penetrating oil (like wd-40) and let it sit overnight. If you have the time, spray it several times over a couple of days to give it time to penetrate the rust. Invest in a set of brake line wrenches, they are designed just for this, and will not strip the connection fittings like a regular wrench. After the line is replaced, you will have to bleed the system at the wheel where the line was replaced. Spray the bleeder valve at that wheel w/ penetrating oil also to aid in opening the bleeder valve.

2002 saturn sl1 pcv valve

The PVC valve is located in the valve cover (top "cover" of the engine, near the oil filler cap) On DOHCs, it is immediatly to the right. On SOHCs, it a few inches to the left.The PVC valve is held to the valve cover with a rubber grommet type seat.

1. Remove the hose that connectes the throttle body unit to the PVC valve.
2. Using your hands, remove the PVC valve from the rubber seat. Wiggle it back and forth, then pull it straight out.
3. You can either clean this with carb cleaner, or simply replace it with a new one (<$5 at most auto stores)
4. Put the PVC valve back into the rubber seat and replace the hose

First turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. Then use some pliers to carefully remove the plastic retaining clips that hold the splash guard in place in the right front wheel-well. You should now be able to see the oil filter (incidentally this is how you access the oil filter). Remove the oil filter. You should now be able to see the PCV valve and its hose which connects to the intake manifold. Use pliers and loosen/slide the retaining clip up the hose a couple of inches (this will alow the PCV valve to rotate as you unscrew it). Use a "stubby" open wrench to unscrew the PCV valve. With the PCV valve removed from the crankcase it is now easier to remove it from the hose. Reverse the process with a new PVC valve and you are finished. Appoximate time 30- 45 minutes.
