      Video Review & Installation

      Justin: The J&L Passenger Side Oil Separator that we have here today is gonna be a great way for 2011 and newer EcoBoost or 5-Liter owners looking to keep those intakes and valves a little bit cleaner over the long run. Now, the J&L will pack an American-made build consisting of a 3-ounce billet aluminum container and silver, along with all of your factory style lines and fittings, but right around that high $100 price point. Install is gonna be a complete piece of cake here, guys, so figure a soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and at least 10 minutes, maybe a little bit more to complete from start to finish. But either way, hang with me for a bit and we'll show you how it's done later in the video.So, in short, your truck has what is called a PCV system or positive crankcase ventilation. Now, the purpose of this system is to regulate and remove the fumes and oily vapors caused during combustion from the engine crankcase and to alleviate crankcase pressure, which could otherwise cause oil leaks or seal damage. Now, because laws mandate the PCV system be sealed, the engine does have to use vacuum to draw these vapors out of the crankcase and then plumb them back into the intake track where they're to be burned off during the next combustion cycle, and so on. Now, while this all sounds good, in theory, a lot of times these oily vapors end up kind of coating or leaving a residue in the intake manifold and on the back side of your intake valves, which can lead to what is called valve coking, especially in the absence of a port injector, and that is the case with the early EcoBoost trucks.Now, I know this is all a bit confusing, so if you'd like a complete breakdown as to why installing an oil separator is a great idea along with how exactly they work, check out our "What's Up With That All Things Oil Separator" video back at our AmericanTrucks Ford YouTube channel. We give a nice detailed breakdown along with some experiments to just show you how these things work. But let's get back into the J&L here, guys, and again, using a combination of what is a stainless steel mesh and aluminum honeycomb up top, it's basically going to allow those oily vapors produced during combustion to pass through the separator where it's going to isolate all that junk and then collect it or catch it down in the canister here below.Now, this is still going to allow that fresh clean air to pass through the PCV system uninterrupted so you're not really gonna mess with anything in that regard, and shouldn't be throwing any check engine lights or anything like that. Now, J&L does claim that you should empty this junk every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, but it's been my experience, especially with my EcoBoost Raptor, that this guy tends to fill up pretty quick depending on your condition. So, probably not a bad idea to check your canister a little bit more often, just to make sure it's empty at all times and make sure you're emptying it responsibly. Now, as far as you're construction is concerned, well, again, guys, you're looking at a very simple design from J&L which, by the way, is formerly JLT, one of the most trusted names in the catch can or oil separator game, they changed things up they're called J&L now, but it's the same quality and construction that you guys know from their previous products.Now, again, billet aluminum material for the canister itself. In this case, they finished it off in an anodized satin finish, which is gonna give you that kind of matte silver look, but just a quick heads up here, guys, J&L does also offer this in a black finish as well, a little bit more stealthy under the hood. Now, the truck-specific kit does also include your factory-style hoses and fittings, which is gonna make for a very simple install. And again, the entire kit has been made right here in the U.S.A. But switching gears, let's get into the install, and again, because you're getting the factory-style lines and fittings, expect a very simple plug-and-play job, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Site calls this one about 10 minutes to get in place from start to finish. And yes, that's probably true, but don't beat yourself up if it takes you a little bit longer to mount the bracket and then get everything plugged in. But now we do wanna give you a better idea of just how this job will go down on your EcoBoost or 5-liter truck at home. So, without further ado, check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown now.Man: Tools required for this install include, a ratchet, a clip removal tool, a Phillips head screwdriver, a 10-millimeter wrench, and a 10-millimeter socket. In addition to the previous tools, you'll also need a drill and a 1/4-inch drill bit if you would like to drill a second hole, it is recommended by the manufacturer, but not required, but we'll get into that more in the install.What's up, guys? Today, we're gonna be installing an oil separator on our F-150, so let's get right to it. So, to install our oil separator, we're gonna have to disconnect our PCV line and then also disconnect this harness from the clip into the battery tray. So, to disconnect our harness on the battery tray, I'm just gonna get in there with a clip remover tool, just pop that right out of place. So, to disconnect our PCV line, on the other side of this blue tab there's gonna be a smaller tab that we can push up on, and disconnect our line. And comes off just like that.So, now we can go ahead and install our bracket for our oil separator. Now, the manufacturer does recommend that you drill out the second hole. The first one's gonna go in the hole from the harness that we disconnected. It's not a required step from the manufacturer, but they do recommend it. But that being said, we will not be drilling that second hole just for demonstration purposes, but you would drill a second hole right into your battery tray where the first one is.So, now we can install our bracket. So, we can line up our first hole and then run it straight along the battery tray. And where our second hole meets up, we can mark with a Sharpie or grease marker, and then we can drill our hole through there so we can use our second set of hardware. So, now with our bracket bolted down, we can go ahead and mount our oil separator to it. Now, we're gonna go ahead and make sure that both of the labels are facing the same way, and then we can take our Phillips head screws and screw this down. And now we can go ahead and connect our lines, slide that over the top, and then just push it in, and you'll hear that click, and then the same thing on the other side.So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the J&L 3.0 Oil Separator in Satin/Clear Anodized for your Passenger Side of the 2011 to current 2.7-Liter, 3.5-Liter EcoBoost, and 5-Liter F-150. Thank you for watching. And remember for all things F-150, keep it right here at americantrucks.com.

      Description

      Fuel and Oil Don't Mix. Crankcase pressures can force oil into the combustion chambers through the PCV circuit. The J&L solution is to catch the oil in the flow before it can make it into the cylinders, where it might dilute fuel and decrease octane levels. The J&L oil separator prevents the oil fumes in your engine's crankcase vent flow from entering the intake tract.

      Version 3.0. J&L improved on the designed of their old Oil Separator with the introduction of their new and improved Version 3.0. The first big change you will notice is that the Version 3.0 Separator has a larger 3 ounce capacity, which is almost double that of their previous model. Another important difference is the filter media. Older J&L Separators used a Ford Motorcraft pre-filter, but now J&L 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 to prevent them from gumming up your engine.

      Superior Quality. Proudly manufactured right here in the USA, this J&L Oil Separator Company Air/Oil Separator is CNC-machined from a solid block of billet aluminum for superior strength. Designed with a rubber o-ring, this Separator will maintain a tight leak-free seal. The base features a knurled texture, so that it can easily be gripped for removal during routine oil changes. J&L then completes their Catch Can in a durable clear anodized satin finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

      Easy Straight Forward Installation. J&L designed their Separator to be an easy straight forward install that can be completed in under 30 minutes using basic hand tools. The included PCV silicone hoses feature pre-attached stock-style quick-disconnect fittings making J&L's Catch Can a true plug-n-play upgrade. All the necessary brackets and hardware are included with no cutting or extra modifications required.
