Oil on throttle body.

I took off my throttle body today and when I looked at it, the side that attaches to the intake manifold had oil on it. Mainly on the butterfly valves. What does this mean?!

You need an oil can catcher. The pcv tube begins sucking oil mist from the valve train. You then burn it through the intake, the catch can allows the oil droplets to be trapped and not go into your intake. You empty it when you change your oil, AM has some for a little over $100. It's a 90 second install.

I put it on my 5 sp. I'm NA and still get oil in it. It's a great fix.

Thanks, meant to type "stock", not "stick" car, but looks like you knew what I meant. So just driver's side or both?

You just need one, it goes on the drivers side, mine is the JLT black can, AM has them. It has the hose already attached, you just unhook the old hose and the can and hose replaces the entire piece. The JLT has the oem connectors on it.

Not sure about that, but this installs on the pcv side (drivers side). AM has plenty of pics, I don't have one of mine in my phone.
