Default breather filters

Ok I just put in 2 breather filters on my 99 Rs, can I put a 3rd one wher the other hose connects to the intake? it would be the one that is connected to the pcv valve hose. Thanks

It's nobody's job to respond to your post... quit being an ass. You'll get more help in the long run by not whining about getting it fast enough and in the method you desire it. You can put breathers on any of the vent lines, as they are just that- vents. They usually go back into the intake for emissions reasons, but they are essentially just going back into a really big vent in the stock setup.

Umm...last time I checked I never said it was anyones job to respond. I was just stating how much help everyone was giving me. I've had plenty of posts where I have needed help and no one ever respods. And yes I do need it fast because my car burns 1.5 quarts of oil every 1k miles and my warrenty is up in less then 3k miles so you can see the urgency. I've taken my car to the subaru dealer and they said that my intake is sucking too much air and is causing it to burn all the oil. There is oil in my throttle body so I figure if I can eliminate all the hoses going to my intake then as long as oil isn't spilling out of the breather filters then there is no way they can explain oil getting into the throttle body without something internal being messed up. Does that sound like a good idea? I've also posted before about mod friendly dealers and got no responses that's why I'm a little edgy. I don't know about you but I can't afford to tear apart my motor or have it blow on me. Warrenty work is the only way or I'm screwed.
Someone actually found some act that protects people who mod thier cars and how a dealer can't void a warrenty due to aftermarket parts unless they say that they will void it. One way they do that is say they don't cover aftermarket parts making it sound like they void the warrenty but what they really mean is they don't cover the aftermarket part if that breaks. Dealers are verry shady and I hate mine . I also was running synthetic and swiched back to regular hoping that it won't seap through seals or something. I don't know my life sucks.

1. You'll catch more flies with honey... Sorry I don't know much about vent breathers. You might want to try searching, this forum has been around for like 5 years now in its various states, I'm sure it's been covered once or twice... Check in the technical archives.

2. I'm not sure you understand that thing about "aftermarket parts not voiding your warranty." Look it up, go find the actual legal act. If I remember, it says that your entire warranty isn't void just because you're modified things that aren't related to the part that failed.

For instance: You install aftermarket seats and harnesses, and later your engine (which has NO mods) has problems. Your warranty is still intact because the seats don't affect the engine.

If you've modified your engine (maybe by installing aftermarket intake or even K&N air filter), then if your engine fails, the dealer can justifiably say that you've voided the warranty for that repair.

Different dealers will put up with different degrees of crap, sounds like yours are tightwads. Or maybe your "people skills" are lacking? Or maybe both?

Again, I say, nobody has to respond. If they don't, it sucks, but don't go pissing about when they don't. Your response of "Awsome!!! you guys are a huge help" clearly shows you are pissed because people haven't responded... it's nobody's job to I say again. I try to help out whenever I can- the only reason I responded was because someone else someday will search for a similar subject as yours, find this thread, and find it helpful. I didn't respond because you whined about it.

It doesn't matter what oil you're using, have been using, will be using, or how many breathers you add/remove from your car. It should not be burning one and a half quarts of oil every 1,000 miles, and which vent line it's coming in through really won't matter. The oil is getting into your throttle body through the crankcase breather lines- they recirculate into the air intake tract to burn off the oil/vapors (emissions related thing ). If you are burning that much oil and have that much in your intake, I'd start guessing that you are getting oil blowby. That being the case, your oiling rings are not holding the oil in anymore, or the piston rings are letting it by and they shouldn't. In any event, a 1.5 quart of oil per 1k mile problem is almost certainly going to involve tearing down the motor. I can't really afford that either myself, but it's better than ruining the whole engine, which would be far more costly. The dealers aren't out to screw you on your warranty- only SOA can do that. SOA pays the warranty claim if it's legitimate. If SOA won't pay the claim, someone has to pay the dealership, which would end up being you. The dealership doesn't really care where the money comes from (you or SOA) just that they get paid .

Thanks for the input. The reason I put on the breathers is to see if oil is comming out of those locations. I took off the intake and cleaned it out, no oil is comming from the breathers and there is no resude in the only tube connected to the intake so I proved my point so when I go back they can't say it's because of my lines that oil is getting in there. I wrote to soa and the said to go to another dealer and get a second opinion. My friends told me that when they were following me and I gunned it when it got higher in rpm's that there would be a lot of crap comming out of my exhaust (blow by). When I even mentioned that I was getting blow by to the service manager he said that he's never heard anything about that from an Rs and insisted I had the lines hooked up wrong. I'm also gonna see if my friend can do a leak down test then when they do it make sure that they aren't lying aobut the numbers. Again I'm sorry I was being bitter but when my car is hurting I'm hurting too.
