black carbon in throttle body? oil smell?

So I noticed first a strong odor on hard acceleration then pretty much now its all the time and I looked into the throttle body and it is really black looks like its coated in burn oil, any thoughts?

Clean it and get a oil separater to stop the oil from going into the TB

JLT sells a great kit with oem connections. You will mainly need the passenger side separator that's where most of the blow back circulates through the TB and intake mani.

Yeah that's on the to do list but should I be getting a lot of blow by with only 15000 miles on it?

When was the last oil change, who did it, and what kind of oil was it? I'm thinking If its old oil, it could have broken down. Eccessive heat can also break down the oil.

Pretty common with these engines. Ford should just start putting oil separators in them stock.

IDK I don't think having blow by at 15k miles is good. I have no blow by at all on my 01GT with 150k miles. I know its a diferent engine and I do use high milage oil.

I don't have any smoke out the back but the smell is pretty strong, reminds me of loose rings

So an update I changed the oil to 5w20 amsoil and no more smell at any rpms I guess 3000 miles is the max for royal purple my driving style is kinda tough so I guess that plays into it too but still...

Royal purple is a true synthetic and I also driver very hard and not going to change oil till about 6-7k. It's useless to use true synthetic oils and change at 3k amsoil and RP are the only oils I will use.
