    Hey guys question I have a 2003 jeep liberty 3.7 2WD 193,423 MLS. I replaced all the sensors and pcv and breathers. But as the old IAT is covered in oil after a hour drive. I don't have the baffle in the oil fill which I did order. I was wondering if placing a catch can would help keeping oil being sucked into the intake manifold. Any thoughts???

    It'll be in a little holder on the right side. What brand PCV did you use? Aftermarket ones are very hit and miss.

    My Sponge Bob is now green. I cut him out of a lawn mower air filter. Just thought I'd mention the idea in case someone is missing theirs. I only had to replace mine because someone had used what looked like fiberglass insulation.

    My 02 did not. Breathers ran into the big resonator box sitting in front of the TB.
