Re: Glass jar on Engine

if there's nothing but the jar , the lines and a check valve on the engine side I'd presume that's the intent

Re: Glass jar on Engine

I'm presuming that's not an Olds and that's not a jar of their "rocket fluid"

Re: Glass jar on Engine

Well, it's the anemic and totally asstastic 2.7 in the LH platform, so I'd venture to guess it's something to do with a modified PCV or catch can setup.

Re: Glass jar on Engine

maybe an attempt at automotive genetic modification

hey if all it takes is a jar of R/T or SVT juice and an I-V tube .. it would sure save us all a lot of work if you can get that to happen..

Re: Glass jar on Engine

Good guess but no, it's the totally reliable, economical, powerful and misunderstood 2.7 with a normal PCV.

It's been perfectly reliable for well over 300K and I'm hoping the jar might get me to 500K with no extra expense.

Thanks
Randy

PS: Think guys think, obviously it's not something one sees every day.

Some sort of air filter using motor oil?

I had a '56 Chevy pick up way back when in which the air filter consisted of an assembly with motor oil that filtered the air...

Maybe it's a tip from the Red Green Show using Canadian Whiskey.

If you can't drive drunk at least your car can!

But I don't see any duct tape...

Re: Glass jar on Engine

It looks a lot like a home-brew catch can to me.

One side inlet to the intake breather, one side connected to the valve cover.

That's my guess.
