Fusion 1.4 2003 Pcv Breather Hose Filter

2 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

I am new to the forums and could do with a little advice. I was replacing the panel air filter with a new panel one, when i noticed another small sponge filter in the housing that was shot to pieces. I believe this is the crank case breather hose filter. My question is, has anyone ever replaced this foam filter with one of those upgrade breather filters ? ( like the small k&n style things) And is there a reason why it got so bad, and smelt a little bit like petrol?

Any advice would be good. . many thanks

Hi

That little filter collects the oil from the breather hose.

It performs a duty but it is pretty useless.

Imagine if your engine decided to exhale loads of oil it would cover the paper air filter and clog it.

A Catch tank would be more advisable
