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

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. :smile2:

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..

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...

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.

I had a small trans leak that was bugging me.

I even had the pump resealed but still a small leak, left a spot after driving.

I put a hose fitting in the bottom of the trans bellhousing and sealed the dust shield.

The rest you can see, works great, no more trans fluid spots on the ground

Very cool watching the fluid swirling around the jar when the Engine is running.!!

I empty the jar contents into the trans whenever it gets about 1/2 full.

Thanks
Randy
