Hi - thinking about buying an older Ford F-150/250 truck - 88 to 92
vintage - and they all seem to be leaking/blowing oil out of the top of
the block/valve cover gasket and the hose that leads from the driver's
side valve cover to the air filter box. Someone said that there is a
screen on the back of the passenger side of the block (under the PCV
valve?) that gets clogged up and is the cause of the oil problems. Does
anyone have any specific knowlege of this problem, the screen I am
referring to, and suggested ways to access the screen and clear it?
Thanks in advance!
what about on a 5.8 liter engine? that seems to be what I see for sale
out there - and those are the engines that seem to be blowing oil out
Do the 5.8 liter engines have a screen below the PCV valve? I don't
know how I would get it out of the head, as it is on the back side of
the passenger side of the block, and there is hardly any room to pull
out the PCV valve, much less the grommet and the screen
