Re: 5.7 drinking oil :/

Re: 5.7 drinking oil :/

LOL, remmy! I don't really think there is a "backwards", as there is a big open space at the top where the hole is and that oil will find its way around and into the intake, no matter which way it is installed. I've run them this way on both my Hemi vehicles, the LX for going on 8 years and never had a problem. Like I say though, I was just trying to slow the flow up a little. From what others say, I get about as much in the can as everyone else does. One other thing, you should be able to get that valve almost anywhere. I went through the same thing, and no one had a listing for either my LX or the WK. It is listed under under 04-05 Dodge Ram Pickup with the Hemi. Go figure!! The Napa part no. (Echlin) is, 2-9516. Good luck, and hope you resolve the issue.

Re: 5.7 drinking oil :/

Blue smoke = engine oil is leaking directly into the combustion chamber, and pcv blowthrough would not cause this. My guess is either valve stem seals or piston rings were not done /installed properly by the rebuilder. I'd confront the rebuilder about the problem.
