Oil in Intake tube before Turbo

Here is the thing. I took my intake apart today to see what kind of tube I needed to install my NAPA filter and I noticed there is oil in the intake. The first part of the tube from the filter to the turbo is clean but after the little vent tube that sticks in there from the valve cover there is oil and with it some dirt that got caught by it. My question is, is that normal? What does the valve cover vent tube do? Is there supposed to be oil coming out from it? I am just trying to find out if I have an issue somewhere that I need to adress?

Thanks

It will be a bit sticky, but there shouldn't be pooling oil around it. What you ought to do is while you have the intake off, start the truck and look to see how much stuff is being sucked out of the valve cover breather. Another thing you can do is take the breather apart and clean it. When they get really filthy, the oil vapor that is supposed to condense and get returned to the valve cover ends up condensing further up the line and gets into the intake pipe.

good luck

Thanks guys! This is the fastest forum ever, 2 replies in less than 5 minutes!

There is no oil pooling, sorry about not being clear. But it is a little sticky in there and my S&B filter must have let more dirt through that I would have liked. But that is why it going away!

I will give that breather tube a cleaning when I get time.

Thanks again!

I would be reluctant about re-routing the CCV. I like the idea of having a negative crank case pressure. keeps the seals working right, and your rings sealing.

From the article: Welcome to guzzle's CCV mod web page

About the IH T444e, I have one of those too, and it doesn't actually vent to atmosphere. I forget what exactly it does, but I know it is some sort of closed loop type system. As far as I know, venting to atmo is illegal except for off-road use (ie tractors, stationary engines, etc). Not that I really care, but I know that Ford and IH wouldn't make anything that would violate the law.
