      Hi to everyone.

      I've changed my oil with new PCV breather box(Oil filter housing or Oil separator or..whatever it's called) few weeks ago, and drove for about 300 miles now.
      But I see this.
      (sorry about the images. you can view them from

      https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...QAJAOnmg1huPc3)

      It seems that the plastic (cover, is it?) on top of the aluminum body is not well sealed.
      Is this normal or do I need to ask FCP for a replacement?
      Haven't seen any reports that this PCV breather box is very easy to make oil leaks, just've seen everything related to clogging, diaphragm..


      Believe me I didn't spill any oil when filling.

      Looks like its leaking. I would warranty that for another.

      I had thought they only failed with the tell-tail squealing. However, mine started leaking a while before it started squealing.

      It stopped leaking then.. I wonder why and nobody around me knows the answer, so I'll just have to check regularly and see if it goes worse.

      Mine doesn't squeal, it's a new one I've replaced. Still doesn't squeal after adding more mileage(+900).
