Wet CAC boots

I have about 72,000 on a 06 6.0. The CAC tube boots are starting to get messy. I'm assuming that the oil has got to them and they are weeping with boost pressure. What is the best source for replacements? Have no other weeps or leaks and just hate to have a mess for such a simple issue.

Bumpy, look at doing the CCV re-route, get rid of all that crap going back into your engine!! This CCV mod is difficult only if you overthink it. Vent it to the outside and be done.

I agree with ccv reroute. Just did mine and can see the emission coming out of it alot. That would really help them boots stay clean as well as your inner cooler. Easy mod you could do in about an hour.

You know, I did something similar to an inline 6 gas I had years ago due to the air filter constantly getting soaked with oil. Although I'm by no means a tree hugger I'm not sure I want to just dump that on the ground. Or all over the undercarriage.

Sorry, no clamps

We do sell clamps from time to time; However, with these particular boots I usually don't sell clamps.

wet cac boots

I posted about this at another time in regards to the BD CCV filter. This is a device which says it will remove the oil from the blow by and recirculate only air and you would have a catch can for the oil which is drainable. The main problem some of us would have is to locate it in another position if you also have a coolant filter installed.

Bumpy,

Don't buy those silicone boots. I'm on my second set (yes the last set were the updated ones from the dealer) and they are now leaking. I'm 100% stock. I just ordered replacement boots from dieselsite.com, which are NOT silicone. A little pricey, but I don't care. The updated boot from Ford started leaking after 8 months. They also sell a wire clamp that goes on the pipe to help with blowoff.

The crankcase vents to the intake therefore there will always be a source of oil. Replacing the stock boots does not do any good because they will just saturate again.

If they are replaced with something that is not permeable the oil will just collect there.

I personally just wipe mine down every now and then. I could not justify spending any money on that item. Once I kept after it the wet spot on my bell housing went away as well.

I think I'm going to just remove clean, inspect for cracks and if all is good re-install. I can't really justify the $$$$ for it to happen again regaurdless. It has taken 72,ooo to get to this however, so if it becomes a constant issue right after cleaning I may just get a new set............ took 3 years to get this way first time around.
What would be a good cleaner? Dish soap perhaps?

I just take a rag to mine. Dish soap is a great degreaser and would work. I noticed mine after I was under my truck for an oil change and saw that the bell housing was wet(~18,000 miles). Took it to the dealer and they put dye in it. I did some looking around on my own and found drips forming under the CAC boots. I reacted the same way you did. I did some reading on it and came to the conclusion I posted above. I bounced it off of a few techs. One in particular said sometimes they replace them at the dealer he works at just to make the customer happy but acknowledged that they will again become saturated and drip.
