I know about the pcv valve but there must be a filter too, it's in the ownersmanual and at www.fram.com you can find one too. (the ba8113 from fram or the fa-1068 from motorcraft <1993 ownersguide page 330> its al little round metal tube-like thingie.. :rolleyes:

There is a filter, and that is the correct one. It is located beneith the PCV valve and seems like a PITA to get to...I did mine when the engine was out of the car. Take a flashlight and mirror and take a peek down there. A wire screen holds the mesh element in place (top and bottom).

A plugged filter will help lead to having oil in the TB, MAF and intake tract...

thanks guys!!!

i found it!!! thanks man!
I got it out by putting a big screw in it and then pull the thing out.
10 min. work.
it was soooo dirty! (see it at: http://www.dtronics.net/ba_old.jpg )
fordusa parts are hard to get here in holland, i had to wait 2 months for this filter...
(FRAM) motorcraft would take even longer!

thanks everybody!

Yea...that looks about right :) I ended up cleaning mine and reusing it. It's amazing what a little carb cleaner and brake parts cleaner will do...

Anyway, glad you got it taken care of...

you could have missed it i guess, it is down in under where the PCV fits. I have seen them clog up and cause problems. It's funny, i don't know if the design changed, or if it was just a fluke...but i think that the 94-95 Mustang 5.0's (same intake as an MN12) had less problems with the filter clogging up. I have replaced lots of them on pre-93 5.0L's (in mustangs) but none on an SN95. Strange...

You should have it and it is needed. In fact, I believe every Ford engine has some type if PCV filter somewhere. Replace the grommit if you need to...the filter element is way down in there...

I swear i don't have it.. And i even looked in there, when i had the intake off a ways back when doing the head job.. Maybe it's just Really badly covered with crap..

Cuase i had the PVC valve and Gromet out at the same time.. Maybe i should try poking in there with an extra long screw and see what i come up with...

Also not all fords, my '66 comet does (289) ;)
