Exclamation oil in intercooler

Alright guys was going through my stock things i took off the truck and go figure i grabed the intercooler!! I twisted it and BOOM oil came out. It left a pretty nice size puddle for me to clean up!!

But foreal guy is this ok? Truck had 130000 mikes when i replaced it with a sperco.

Also i know oil is shot through the intake and pushed all the way to motor

I also took off my cold air side intercooler pipe and it had oil too... drips of it

Not uncommon. I emptied mine yesterday and got a few drips. It's from our ccv.

My good buddy dumped 2-3 qts out when he emptied his.

Yea its common. I would highly recommend a CCV mod to keep that from happening.

There is a line going from the oil fill to you intake. That is your crank case vent. You can plug the hole in your intake and re route the line from the oil fill out of the engine bay under the truck. The CCV blows an Oily mist into the intake, thus putting oil in the intercooler.

Man you guys beat me to it!

+1 for the CCV mod!

Lots of guys do an open system. I like my closed system tho.

I used to have the CCV mod but I took it off because I got tired of the smoke. I need a closed system but am scared of back pressure.
