It's purpose is to collect oil so you can drink it - it gets you really messed up! So bad you'd probably have to go to the hospital - lol just kiddin - don't drink it - lolmexillis wrote:what is the purpose of this device? And what do u do with the oil it collects?
All you need is hose and clamps. I have to say it works. I drain it about every 700 miles. I havent measured the consumption but the PCV system pulls some oil. I have a new engine and before I installed this I got blue smoke again. After install nada. Ive put a catch can on all 4 of my vehicles and all pull oil.dvan wrote:New2Import,
What parts if any did you need to get besides the oil sep its self (link below)? Looks easy enough, is there any instructions to follow?
The hose just needs to be structurally sound to resist collapsing since it will be under vacuum. It also needs to resist oil so that it doesn't swell or turn to mush.iwantyourcar wrote:I am putting the order in today for the jegs, My M45 is eating a little over a quart of oil over 1k miles. The car runs great other than this issue.
I also tossed in a can of Bg44k today.
did you use the fuel line hoses suggested by jegs, along with the clamps? I think I read somewhere to get specific oil line hoses.
What is a good or reasonable interval to (a) clean and then (b) replace the PCV valve?Q45tech wrote:Same thing with failure to clean or replace PCV valve at reasonable intervals
Please also take detailed before-and-after pictures of where you tap in (and specifically what is meant by "tap" in this context! Do you have to cut existing tubing? Rubber? Metal? Other? Or simply move some tubing from one connector to another?)New2Import wrote:You only need one. Find the line that they both feed to the TB and tap in there. Make sure when you install that the line from the valve covers goes IN and Out to the TB. To test have someone WOT while you look at it and you will see the vapors.
Follow the hose in the pic above. No cutting at all. You just remove the tube going into the TB and install the separator in between the TB and the point to where both tubes from the each valve cover meet. Very simple.szhosain wrote:

Details, please!! I am also interested in doing this change to my Y34 and am far more of a novice at things like this than I would like ... so detailed pictures will help a lot!
In for results and better picsmexillis wrote:bumping this up. I just put one in on my car and I could tell oil passes through and into the TB. I will post pics on my collection when I put some mileage on it.
