Oil in intake

Anybody know why I have oil in the air snorkel tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body on my '01 lightning? Could this be a crankcase ventalation problem?

Its usually crank case ventilation. Sometimes piston blow-by is the root cause.

Next time you change the oil, try not to top it off and see if the problem stops. Adding a crankcase breather cap will help keep oil out of the intake, but then you'll need a custom chip burned for it.

Someone (JeffsLightning) has posted some pic of oil filter similar to what is used on an air compressor, splice into the vent line.
