I removed my intake manifold already, I removed my thermostat. I broke oil filter housing connection. I see oil in tubes going from oil separator to air intake. oil is air piping. From what I read oil separator hoses need to be replaced.

Not a difficult task, definitely need a car hoist or a set of car jacks to slide underneath.

Here's a good video on the removal.


Good luck!

Do I need to remove axle ? Would removing both one bolt free up plate to get access to oil separator
