Default pcv/flame trap options

Just wondering if anyone has done or heard of modifying the current flame trap system to something simpler such as a hose to a catch can or something simpler. I'm beginning to leak oil, have 950000 miles, and will be servicing this system soon along with replacing leaking seals. Just not looking forward to shelling out 300-450 $ for the components. Excuse the pun but please don't flame me for this question. It just seems to be a fairly complicated system requiring alot of labor to service. Thanks Anthony

Its unlikely that you need to spend anywhere like $400 in parts. $25 is more like it. Two seals for the PCV box and an inlet manifold gasket. All you are doing is replacing the seals and making sure the tank all the pipes are clean...

I believe some people have done an external PCV jobbie with the 5cylinders..

The kit I have seen from IPD is $277. Are you saying I can simply clean the system? If so where can I source the grommets you mentioned. Sorry about the price misquote, I must have included the labor or something. Anyway sure appreciate your help on this. Tony

The entire kit is $227 including all the pipes and whatnot, but theres no reason why you can't clean them all out. Basically theres one aluminum pipe that goes from the top of the PCV tank to the "atmospheric" side of the turbo plumbing. Theres an electronic "digerredoo" (I think its called a PTC valve) there that needs to be clear too. The other two pipes that trail along with the PCV pipe are just cooling system pipe, no need to clean them. Theres a small (Like 3mm) vacuum pipe that goes from the inlet manifold to the top of the PCV tank, this needs to be clear too. Other than that, clean out the PCV box with your favourite solvent(s) and put it back together.

Part #s for the PCV oil seals are 30713120 (top seal), 8653339 (bottom seal), and 9458535 (inlet manifold gasket). You can get them from FCP Groton, AutohausAZ or eeuroparts.com.

okay so i think yall have it all wrong parts should not be more than $75. all u need is the oil trap and two seals that go to the block.also u must remove the crank case hose on the intake and clean it. that should fix your problem easier said then done but the t6 is really the easy oil trap to replace.
