oily gunk around my breather

I have a 95 305 with 116000 miles on it.It seems to have good power but in the last 3000 miles I've noticed an oily residue on my breather assembly starting at the tube that runs from the exaust manifold "I think" to my breather assy.Is this the blow by It seems to run the same as always so I think the compression is good .can anybody help a teenager out.

Re: oily gunk around my breather

there are breather tubes on the valve covers that go into the throttle body extension or the element housing. i'm assuming that's what you're talking about. the residue is normal, just wipe it off and it'll be fine.

i don't think you're talking about the heat riser tube from the exhaust manifold to the element housing, are you? if so, then it might be triggering that little wax thingy that i have no idea what it does....let me find a picture...

edit - check out this thread...is this it? http://bbs.off-road.com/wwwthreads//...00&Old=3months

Re: oily gunk around my breather

well, the heat riser tube goes from the manifold to the hole in the bottom of the element housing....which incidentally is where that little arrow is pointing to in that pic.

did you read that thread up there?

Hey Shorts, it opens and closes that flap in that duct. It looks like you've taken out the flap?? (I have) If you did, make sure you cap the hole on the underside of the duct, so you aren't sucking in hot air from under the hood. That is, if you havn't already capped it. See Ya' Brian.

Its full of wax and when it gets hot it moves the flap that takes the warm air from the engine and moves it into the intake. Mine is connected by a rod to that flap. Hasn't worked in 5 years.

jwb has it. it is there to let warm air in when the vehicles starts to help with ignition. i think to help warm up the engine a little too. but i could be wrong on that part
