massive blowby

ok, I know I either got a cracked piston, or a set of rings that have went south. Now I can't keep emptying a catch can everyday, so will the following work, till I can get the motor rebuilt.

Splice my blowby line into the turbo oil drain return tube that goes back into the pan? An install a breather element, by the top of the blowby line, to allow gases to escape, but let the blowby of oil return to the pan???

Is this do-able??

Re: massive blowby

Yes,do exactly that and it will work. More of a band-aid but it might get you by for a bit.

Re: massive blowby

Having gasoline/water mixed oil back into the oil pan in a unheathy engine is not such a good idea, unless you like the bearings to go out prematurely too.

Re: massive blowby

I have always ran a catch can to breather set up and piped it back into the oil pan. But as stated with an unhealthy motor that may not be the best option. I would suggest fixing the car before it gets terrible and takes other pieces out with it like a turbo or stop driving the car altogether. If its pushing that much oil personally I wouldn't drive it...

Re: massive blowby

sometimes not driving it isnt an option, i get that and have been there myself, with saying that i used to build a replacement engine to take place of the hurt one because most of the time when you keep running them while they are hurt, they wear the cylinder more in the area where the ring land is broke creating a groove or oval cylinder, neither can be fixed in the car when that happens. if you need to drive it, i'd get another engine and start the rebuild process, yea it costs more but really not much considering what your gaining out of it versus trying to correct the damage to the engine that's in the car right now and the down time is less because you can drive it till your done the rebuild as long as you keep up on the oil and not beat it to death.

oil leak? what oil leak?Oh,that's just SWEAT from ALL the HORSEPOWER this T3 makes...... YEA RIGHT.:rolleyes:

Re: massive blowby

yeah exactly, when i found out looking at it blow that much oil outta the tube, i took the WG line off the solenoid that doesnt work, and just spliced it into the manifold vac line, so its only doing 6psi, instead of frigging 20. And i changed my driving habits, i take it real easy on this motor now. Im hoping it will hold together with the band-aid that JACKSON said would work, thanks bud, ill be doing that this weekend, till i can save up enough, then im gonna baby it to FWDP, drop it off and have them rebuild the entire motor, and put some goodies in this 525, help it along to. Or i might just update the trans alltogether.

sucks when you only got the one car, i hiope to just find a shitbox beater to drive, while my car is in the shop, soon as i band-aid this thing this weekend, ill post up close pics, so you all can see what i did, on my project log.

Re: massive blowby

just so you know, there isnt enough goodies in the world to put in to that 525 to make it worth keeping in there.

Re: massive blowby

The blow by's gasoline and moisture will destroy the bearings of the turbo in a short amount of time, then it will kill the main bearings as well.

If you really want this engine to last as long as possible. Dump the catch can every morning and pour fresh new oil to replace. Change the oil every 2000 miles or less.

I'm done with your threads, good luck with your next n/a car.

Exactly! I have a small spline 568 I will sell you and you will be lightyears ahead instead of trying to make a 525 worthy of staying together lol
