Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the JLT 3.0 Black Oil Separator for the passenger side of all 2011 and newer 2.7, 3.5, 5.0, and 6.2L F-150s. In this video, I'll be going over the benefits and functionality that the JLT Oil Separator has for your engine, as well as all the materials and construction. I'll top the video off with the install, which, I'll let you know up front here, will get a 1 out of 3 wrenches on our difficulty meter, because it is a literal direct bolt-on mod that you can do in minutes. The JLT 3.0 passenger side black oil separator will be for any 2011 or new 2.7, 3.5, 5.0, or 6.2L F-150 owner, who might be looking to pick up a part to reduce or eliminate engine sludge from bogging down the engine and reduce blow-by. Now, blow-by is just essentially crankcase exhaust gasses that escape back into the intake manifold, or in the case of forced induction, your supercharger.The JLT has been providing us with oil separators for a pretty long time now, and now this is the 3.0 version, which, unlike the other versions, has a three ounce capacity for the oil catch can, and that's actually almost double some of the previous generations. In addition to that, it also has, instead of a Motorcraft prefilter from Ford, it comes with a half inch thick, one-sixteenths aluminum filter with a honeycomb track. And, of course, it comes with a steel filter here. Now, this steel screen you see on the top here has a honeycomb finish, and all of which is completed by the three-ounce catch can. This stuff is really coming with a lot of pros to really help remove engine sludge to improve your performance, get it back to being so much more healthy, reduce blow-by, all of which really doesn't come with any cons. JLT has been manufacturing these right here in the U.S. out of a solid block of billet aluminum, very, very durable stuff here. And it comes with a black powder-coated finish or your choice of a polished or satin finish. Now, on the bottom here, it's got kind of a knurled texture for really good grip while you're pulling this off. And it also comes with rubber o-ring seals on the inside to make sure it has a leak-free finish.Now, although it might sound like it comes with a high price tag, right around the $140 mark, you wanna keep in mind that this is one of those items that really has no negative aspect to adding this on. It's a very simple mod with a relatively reasonable price if you think about the benefits it comes with here at $140. Now in addition to that, it just helps you reduce that engine sludge, the blow-by, all the things that can really bog down and prevent your engine from performing at maximum potential here. So, with this, a very simple install, in my personal opinion, I think this is a well worth it part.As far as the installation goes here, this is something that is extremely, extremely simple. It will be a direct bolt-on replacement, and it has the exact same fittings as your factory hoses. So, the hoses should look pretty much like this, and the factory location is on the passenger side. You'll just unclamp those from the position on each side and replace them with the JLT, very straightforward. Again, five minutes at the absolute maximum, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.Just to quickly wrap things up here, if you are the owner of a 2011 or new F-150, whether it's a 2.7, 3.5, 5.0, or 6.2, you might be interested in removing engine sludge from bogging down the performance aspect and also reducing blow-by. If that sounds like something you're interested in, the JLT 3.0 Black Oil Separator for the passenger side is available right here at americanmuscle.com.
Keeps Oil Separate.
Heavy use can cause a great deal of oil to vent through the crankcase vent. Your engine’s PCV system feeds this waste oil back into the intake system for burning in the cylinders. However, the oil can dilute fuel and lower octane. The JLT V3.0 Black Oil Separator catches the oil fumes from the crankcase vent, storing them for occasional safe disposal. The oil separator keeps your fuel pure, ensuring maximum performance in your F-150.Version 3.0.
JLT improved on the designed of its old Oil Separator with the introduction of the new and improved Version 3.0. The first big change you will notice is that the Version 3.0 Separator has a larger 3 oz. capacity, that is almost double that of its previous model. Another important difference is the filter media. Older JLT Separators used a Ford Motorcraft pre-filter, but now JLT uses a 1/2" thick 1/16th" aluminum honeycomb filter with a mesh stainless steel screen to trap even more fine oil vapors than before. That helps prevent them from gumming up your engine.Superior Quality.
