Mystery Fuel Injector Harness Part
I have an 86 Bronco. It has developed an ENORMOUS amount of pressure and smoke in the crank case. So much so that if the hose between the oil cap and the breather comes off the engine smokes like it's on fire at every stop sign.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? It isn't running great, but it does seem to idle fine. Hasn't had any top end for some time, and the problem is noticibly worse when the weather is hot. It's fairly cool down here now, so I'm able to get up to 65 or 70 MPH. When the weather is warm 50MPH is about all I can get. Someone told me that there's some sort of ventilation filter on the back side of the block, nearest the firewall, that I need to pull out and clean. I could use some direction here. I'm not even sure what to google to find out what he was talking about.
My next problem. After checking the oil the other day the hose between the oil cap and the breather came off. While I was reconnecting it I found what appeared to be a loose connector that seemed to be part of the harness for the fuel injection. On closer inspection it seems to be a plug from the harness with whatever it was plugged into broken off inside the plug. This plug seems to be bundled with one of the injectors wires on the driver's side, just under the hose between the oil cap and breather. Can anyone help me identify what this is? I'm thinking this might be part of my over all trouble.
Thanks in advance for any help.
