OK I'm feeling a little dumb here. How do you get it out?
I Don't want to break it. Do you have to release a plastic clip? or just pull.

I first pulled off the hose, it just snaps on, then I took my Vice Grips and got a hold of the silver barbed thing near where it goes into the valve cover and pulled up on it.

OK thanks, I'll try it when the engine is warm, its 49 Deg here.
Did the dealer drill yours out?

twist it back and forth before pulling up. It presses right back in.

I drilled my orifice today! I can see how it gets clogged, the holes were small to begin with.

Drove the car around for about 15 minutes or so and my oil pressure is at 30-34 at crusing speeds of 35-55mph. At acceleration it does go up, and at WOT it does get into the peak 70 mark. Is this ok?

I put the RX oil breather back on and plugged the hole where the oem pcv drivers side tube is coming from (what is that called again?).

I think I am having the same problem, any suggestion?

Hi Guys,

I have been wondering around the forum and a fellow member shared me the link to this thread.

I have found oil in my engine bay as well. A reply from a my thread said could be a blockage within the PCV system. I will be honest, I dont know much about car engine, pcv, etc. but if someone can explain to me a little, I can figure it out.

May I know if I am sharing the same problem with you guys?... You may look at the pictures. It's grainy iphone pic but you can get the idea.

I hope someone can help me with this problem.

BTW, I live in the Macau and Camaro's are "import only" cars here. We have no Chevy dealership and/or service center. So, I have to depend on myself when doing simple maintaince and trying to avoid local autoshops as they would charge me more for the reason that the car is not common (at least in where i live).

Here's the link to my original thread http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=258759

Thank you so much.

Vincent

No that would be the wrong side, look on the passenger rear valve cover, the orifice fitting is there with a hose attached. Remove it and check for a clog, clean the metal orifice out with carb spray.

Removed mine and it is clean, throttle plate is clean and dry also.
Must have broken my engine in right as it is not breathing much oil past the rings. Didn't want to drill the orifice holes out 7/64 so I just did the next drill size under that. I'll monitor it at the next oil change and see how it goes.

Where are you getting the idea of plugging the drivers side tube? Sounds like trouble to me.

If you have the breather drivers side tube NEEDS to be removed and plugged.

Vicent,

Your leak is at the other end of the PVC line so yes there could be a chance you orifice (or whatever is called) is clogged, creating a backup.

Anyone have the part number of this barb? I would like to get a spare unaltered to swap out if I need to take it in for warranty work.

I thought of the same thing, seems like any parts store should have it but I can't seem to find it. Maybe have to call the dealer parts dept.
Hope this doesn't cause more oil usage.

I don't blame you, no one has produced a service bulletin yet which leads you
to believe its a problem with THEIR breather setup.

Actually, there are others who have leaks on the factory clean side - those not even running a breather.

This leak is not due to the breather.

Vicent who posted earlier is not running a breather and has the PVC leak.

Thanks for the suggestion. Last night, I managed to remove the orifice and took me just around 15 minutes including the drilling.

The holes of that thing are really tiny. Really oiled up when i took it off but im still not so sure if it's really clogged because i blew air in the other end of the orifice with no restriction or whatsoever. I did the same with the hose that's connected to the CAI and the part where the oil is leaking. Air can flow through but a little restricted, I assume it's because of that "can-like" thing in the middle of the hose. How do you call that "thing", by the way?

Anyways, I still cleaned the orifice and ported the holes. let's see if there's any development after 1 week.

Thanks again

just installed my catch can and breather set up this weekend....unfortunately i didnt have a drill so i was unable to port the orifice....I plan on doing that real soon. I also wanted to mention that the bracket that was sent was way to small to mount to the radiator and if i did mount it then the can would not fit because the fan shroud is in the way....whats up with the small bracket? it doesnt look like any of ther others ive seen??? SO i mounted the small bracket to another bracket in the area...see pics...this install took me about 2 hrs....yea go ahead laugh, i had a hard time mounting the bracket and also cutting the plastic tube with a razor blade wasnt easy. and so on and so on. I did find the rubber nipples in the box and pulling out the old tube and capping them off was the easiest thing. i screwed on the breather cap and went for a ride...ALL IS GOOD!! hopefully i wont run into any problems....i just need to port that orifice and i should be in good shape.

Is that a throttle body spacer? Also how did you get your breather filter to be black, mine is white. Looks nice.
