Funny, I drive mine like a bat outta hell and they haven't dripped/sprayed oil anywhere. What conditions are you talking about?

Yes over time they will get oiled up but all you need to do is wash them. Not that big of a deal.

I put about 1500 miles on my car every year so it will be years before I need to deal with it.

Haha mine are close to getting washed but I do a lot more driving than you. I probably do that many miles in a month now haha.

I find it easier to clean the less it's driven.

I'm feeling the same way about my BLACK mustang. PITA to keep clean but looks killer when it is.

I'm curious about the conditions as well. I probably put roughly 1500 on mine a month

You would have to ask JPC about that, they are the ones that stated they had issues. I would imagine that sustained loads and high RPMs would do it, or anything else that would cause the oil to get really hot and vaporize. I would also imagine the kind of oil used would affect this threshold, say 5w50 would be much less likely than 5w20.

Just opened mine up again to check after 4000 miles and had a little oil after all. They must work.

They trap some but not all of the oil.

I wonder where the idea came from that the oil from the engine would create problems?
I remember when cars only had a filter on one valve cover. They would fill up with oil and dirt and make a mess on the valve cover if they were not replaced or cleaned. When they went to pvc valves and sucked into the air filter, I saw some cars that had excessive oil consumption plug the air filter or get into the carburetor and make a mess. But things back then (about the time they invented dirt) weren't the same as now days.
I don't doubt there could be a problem, but is it that bad of a problem that you need to spend $60-$150 to fix? I used to race 65 Mustangs back in the day and never had any problems. Are the new horses that much more particular or is there a mountain being made out of a mole hill? I'm just asking cuz I just got a '14 GT and if there is a real problem, I think now is the time to fix it.
Thanks for any input.

I don't run one, but I'd chalk that up to bad install/maint.

Agreed. I've only been running mine for a couple months. But it's not coming off unless I take it off or it breaks

Both are acceptable for replacement of the passenger side of the engines breather tube to intake manifold. The oil seperator makes it easy to remove, drain the oil mist collected, and re-install. Pricey though. The breather filters are cheaper, but require cleaning; more often when long or high sprited driving is done.

How the "system" works is quite simple: The passenger side is the "intake" side; fresh air is drawn into the crankcase from this side, so it does not require a catch can; either leave the factory tube in place (draws fresh air from the air filter box), or place a small filter as most do for looks on the drivers side cylinder cover, and cap the tube inlet at the air box nipple.
The passenger side is the "outlet"; the crankcase fumes (and oil mist) exit on this side during low RPM (high vacuumn) through the PCV valve, through the tube and routed into the upper intake manifold to be burned off. It is this line that routes the oil mist into the upper intake, causing the oil to collect on the intake valves, and eventually cause deposits. Since the tube connects to the upper intake (connection is forward of the Throttle Position Sensor), the TPS is not affected.

It's this oil mist getting to the valves that folks want to capture. By using a catch can on the passenger side (absolutely no need for one on the drivers side; this is the fresh air intake side for the crankcase breathing system), the oil mist is captured in the can, and therefore does not get into the intake. A filter on the drivers side will also work (don't forget to cap the nipple at the upper intake side); you'll just need to clean this filter, as it attaches to the PCV, and at high vacumn, the PCV opens and the oil mist will be captured by this filter.

Some are lazy and don't clean the passenger side filter often enough. This is why oil can get onto the passenger side engine area, and cause a smelly oil burning condition during long idle, such as in traffic conditions.

The Auto manufactures use the existing arrangement because it was certified and approved by the Feds way back when; it also foes not require any maintenance by the average driver. However, it does allow for oil mist to enter the intake, and eventually causes oil deposites on the top of the intake valves.

[QUOTE=nosympathy;1633990]Breathers for smog reasons but the seperators could be used. Good question to ask Ford haha.

I'm surprised that there isn't a FRPP separator.
