2.5ns breather cap ?

My exmod is equipped with the 2.5na diesel. When I got it, the breather cap had a hose running off it to the left side of the engine. It blew a ton of oil out of the hose and onto my diff while driving home from the border after I got it imported.



Looking into it, I see the hose is supposed to run to the right side of the engine into what looks like a filter then down into the pan. What the heck is this part and should oil flowing through the breather cap be a huge concern if it's obviously supposed to run back into the engine?

It should go to the air intake box.

Some folks install an Air/Oil Separators.

I think the military put centrifugal filters on them to keep them from breathing their own oil and running away.

Wish I had another option but right now I just want to get it back on the road. Goal is to put some cash aside for a repower in a year or so.

Looking at the picture Your diaphragm pluming is wrong, The side port on the diaphragm goes to the cyclone below. The other port in the middle of the diaphragm routes to the intake manifold. I had the same issue when I bought my 110. It was consuming it's own oil supply. I found a picture of another 2.5 NA and saw the diaphragm routing was different. I tried the other way no more problem. The cyclone should route down to the oil pan for return.

The photo is from withams. Mine had none of that plumbing, just a hose running from the breather cap to the floor.

How much blow by is acceptable before you start thinking rebuild or replacement?
