Just curious as to how many Kms before people are changing their filter or can it be cleaned?
I have only been draining the oil every oil change 5000km. And last change, I cleaned the filter only by using paper towel to wrap around it then gently squeeze to soak out the oil. It has done about 50,000km since fitting the provent. I bought a spare when I got it but still have it sitting in the back as a spare.Just curious as to how many Kms before people are changing their filter or can it be cleaned?
I have been wondering about this too. Mine has been in for about 90k. I have washed the element out with petrol twice. Its still collecting oil, but I am also about to replace my front crank seal as its leaking heaps. Wondering if I might have a bit too much resistance in the crank vent causing the leak? Maybe petrol has mucked up the filter? I do get a little oil in the outlet of the prevent, but have for years. Looks like a new pro vent filter is about $80?Just curious as to how many Kms before people are changing their filter or can it be cleaned?
Because the new filter has a sort of sponge medium with fibre paper wrapped around it, it will hold quite a bit of oil before it becomes saturated and drains into the base of the provent. So yes that is right, you will not see any oil collect for a while, till the filter saturates and starts draining into the base.I fitted a replacment after about 15000km and prior I was getting about 40ml per 1000km. Now that the new one is in I'm getting very little to nothing. A bit strange. Not sure what to think. When I first put the provent in it took a while to start getting any oil in the drain pipe also.
