    I looking at changing fluid in my rear soon and I noticed my vent has been puking out gear oil. I have done lots of searching about replacements. I'm thinking about ordering the turkey baster, I would love a catch can but I can't spend $100 on one right now. Has anybody just made something? Like a hose and filter? I know the turkey baster doesn't do well on lowered cars

    I bought a hose barb nipple, attached a 3/8" hose, ran it up alongside the fuel fill line and placed a fuel filter at the end. Some people just run a hose up there and make a few loops. Your fluid will never get high enough to reach most of the catch cans that are sold.

    For some, the turkey baster is enough. But if you track it, the exhaust might melt it. I understand ford has another option, which is a hose that goes over the pumpkin... that might be a better fix than the baster.
