Blowby Gas System Inspection
Be certain that all the hoses are routed without being flat-
tened or kinked, and are connected correctly to the oil
reserve tank and right air cleaner base.
If they are not, correct them.
Inspect the breather hoses [A], breather pipe [B] (left-front
view), and the air cleaner drain hose for damage or signs
of deterioration. Squeeze the hoses. These hoses should
not be hard and brittle, nor should be soft or swollen.
Replace any damaged hoses.
Check that the hoses are securely connected.
The air cleaner drain hose is provided beneath the lower
air cleaner duct, and catches the water or oil from the
bottom of the right air cleaner housing. Usually water or
oil does not collect at the bottom of the housing. In the
event that rain water is drawn in through the air cleaner,
or if engine oil is blown back, drain the housing.
Remove the left air cleaner housing (see Fuel System
Remove the drain plug [B] from the air cleaner drain hose
[A] to drain the water or breather oil when changing en-
gine oil (see Periodic Maintenance Chart).
Install the plug to its original position.
Be sure to reinstall the plug in the drain hose after
draining. Oil on tires will make them slippery and
can cause an accident and injry.
