oil intake valve slightly loose?

I installed a jlt oil separator a couple thousand miles back and i love it. Works great. It seems the lower intake where it attaches has a slight amount of play to it. Is that normal? Not the oil separator, but the actual piece that it attaches to.

Keep me posted on the fit and how much the oil separator collects. I just ordered one yesterday and it'll be delivered next Monday - can't wait. Curious if it's supposed to have any play at all at it's connections. You could contact JLT and see what they say at www.jlttruecoldair.com.

That "piece" is the PCV valve. It has some play, as it is meant to twist out and be replaced if needed. This valve opens at low RPM to allow the crankcase pressure to escape from this point, and to the intake to be "reburned". This is where you want the container to capture the oil mist (passenger side). Don't need one on the drivers side, as this is where the engine "draws" air into the crankcase; it comes from a filtered connection at the air box cleaner (or CAI tube).

I empty my JLT catch can every 1,000 miles. Its only half full but i don't want any of the oil it has collected bouncing around and maybe getting sucked into the engine. Just saying..............

Thanks Bucko, very familiar with the PCV valve and what you said makes perfect sense.

No worries. There has been some confusion with catch cans, and which side(s) require them. I thought I'd explain on this post, as to help anyone who searches (lol) about them.

I really don't get why they sell a drivers side catch can, as it is a total waste. That side is the fresh air "draw" side....no oil will be caught from the airbox tube!

Yeah, AM only has one available for the passenger side of the V6. They don't have one available for the driver's side. Makes perfect sense and JLT confirms this setup for the V6. I believe the V8 is a different story as I've seen the oil separator installed on both sides.

I've seen them installed on both sides for the v8, but from what I've seen from people with both the drivers side catches none-hardly any at all

The positive crankcase ventilation system works the same on V8's and V6's. No different. Folks buy the drivers side because they don't know how the system works, and the sellers profit on that.
