Im actually not new with cars, however, i have no idea where a breather goes or what it does. I cant seem to find anything online regarding this...help me. And if any of you have pics of your engines w/breathers it would help a lot also.l<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

A breather is used to vent the crankcase pressure. Do too emission regulations and the invention of the PCV, the open air crankcase vent died. It is normally located at the high point of the engine.

I would reccomend you shove it in the back of your tool kit and never use it.

If you don't know where it goes, or what it does, you have no business installing it.

Sorry to sound like a jerk, but I don't wanna see anyone install the wrong part in the wrong place, and then end up with a damaged car/engine/tranny/etc...

Please, go out and buy "modern engine tuning" by A. Graham Bell" or "performance 4 stroke tuning" by A graham bell.

The 2 books are almost identical, but the "performance" book has much more "performance" information, and the "modern" book has more descriptive terms, more pictures and diagrams, and is a much better "learning" book.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

If you're looking at your motor from the drivers side of the car, there is a small rubber hose that goes into your intake tube by the throttle body. Disconect the hose from your intake tube, but leave it connected to the valve cover. You put your little breather filter on the end of the hose, screw the clamp so it holds it on, but not to tight otherwise you'll pinch the hose. Then get a small screw that will fit tightly into the hole of your intake tube. Hope this helps ya some <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanx alot guys, esp racecar dude. I appreciated it. and trust me, i know all about installing things wrong. i had to learn the hard way on my old car. Im really not engine dumb, i just mostly deal with electrical/audio systems. and my boo boo was over torquing the intake manifold and slightly cracking the gasket. Poor nissan was chocking for a while then just died..... But once again, thanx for your help<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
