1992 yj

i have a 1992 yj 4.0

the problem is that the air filter is getting soaked in oil.

there is even oil dripping out of the hose that connects the TB and air box.

anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

Cheers

i'm thinking the same thing..yer crankcase is either building up too much pressure and/or your pcv/ccv isn't working properly.
if the ventilation system is working properly then you may want to look at your compression and see if there is blow-by
