Re: oil in breather

Hey-Yes It is the rings...its called 'blowby'. Its created in the lose of combustion normally maintained in the upper cylendar area. Even though it feels like you have gobbs of power left... you are still pushing down on your throttle alittle more than you should have to because of the lost combustion(power). I know its sad news..but I had to tell you...I take it you have a 258/straight 6?...its a common problem over 80,000 miles on these motors...even thogh I have seen some with 180,000 with no problems...yes happy jeepin'!
