    Default Throttle body full of oil - 1.9

    Took it off to today to clean it out and noticed the circuit board area was full of oil. Drained it off and cleaned it with carb cleaner. Solder joints seem OK.
    Is there a gasket kit to service these with a view to stopping the oil getting in there?

    Not sure about gaskets cos i re used the same one, but i find that if i'm going on a long run now & again say 200 miles or more round trip if i vent to atmos it helps clean out the oil residue in the inter cooler & keeps the inlet & throttle body a lot cleaner.

    Have a look with a magnifying glass at the joints, done a friends one and could only see the dry joint with it

    How did you do that? Using a small pipe drilled into the side? I'm thinking of doing that myself

    Joints are good. Ironically I think the oil has protected them

    All you do is part the vent pipe at the back left of the engine, attach a length of garden hose into the rubber end & run the garden hose to the front & drop down in the front left side, then part the other end of the same pipe at the front of the engine by the dipstick & bung with a large bolt,
    This was my first attempt as you can see at the front pipe i never had a bolt big enough so i used a piece of 15mm copper pipe with one end flattened over,(use the original pipe clip to hold in place), The other end is the pipe coming out of the oil separator that joins the metal pipe that runs across the top of the engine. Just found another pic where to part rear pipe.

    although i removed the valve idea shown in that post & just had a pipe venting to the floor.

    And that stops the Throttle body PCB gunking up with oil?
    How odd. Hell of a fix, I'll give it a try this weekend.
    Thanks!

    In plain terms, the oil separator at the rear of the engine pics up oil from the sump & is sucked up & is carried straight into the throttle body! on its way it goes through the intercooler & leaves a layer/deposit in the bottom (hence you will see an amount on here with blown intercoolers always gone in the bottom) & there's always oil in there being sucked through the system. Part the rubber/steel pipe at the rear of the engine at the position ringed in the post/link/pic, leave the metal pipe open, then follow the metal pipe towards the dipstick & part there blanking the rubber pipe by the dipstick & leaving the metal pipe open (this is now not connected to anything at both ends), depending how bad your system is oil contaminated it may take a week or so to clear. (another pic of a bung/bolt somone else used at the front).
