Another Air Oil Separator!

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

MY 3.6 litre swap is done, car is running(Thanks for all your help Holyoak). Have been doing some breaking in driving over the past few weeks and have blown two air oil seperators. The first one lasted about 250 miles and the second lasted maybe 30 miles. Any past experiences from anybody to remedy this? Both times it happened was the same condition. Making a down shift between 4-4500 RPMS and poof it lets go. So frustrating and embarassing when that Batman smoke screen happens!

Any Ideas?

I know it's "required" for emissions, but can it be disabled, like by filling the top of it (where the vacuum line connects to the manifold) with epoxy, and drilling a hole near the top to still allow crankcase fumes to vent? Has to be better than spraying oil all over the place. I'd think the 3.6L AOS would work fine with the 3.6L, though. What are you doing to those poor AOSs??
