Oil in the air filter.....

I have an 83 Dodge D150 pickup with a slant six 225 c.i. engine, auto trans, 2 bbl carb and 2wd. My air filter has quite a bit of oil in it. How did it get there? Is it an easy fix to cure this from happening?

Check your pcv valve, hirsch; could be stuck causing excess back-pressure in the engine forcing oil into the air filter housing. Engine may be in need of rings, too.

TYVM Towguy!!!! Hope its the pcv valve. I cannot afford a ring job, and the truck isn't worth it. However I did buy an 85 Dodge with the same engine. When I finally get it home, my roommmate and I might do a slow engine rebuild, and transplant it into the 83.

Surprised anything that old up there in the snow belt still has a body!

P.S. You could also have an obstructed hose, so make sure the hose(s) are clear.

It has a few rust holes in the bed and one or two in the cab. The frame is good, unlike my old Mazda B2000 which I believe had a frame constructed of Maxwell Hose coffee cans
