Not on the v8. the dipstick goes straight into the sump without any other "attachments" (read tubes).



V8 CCV design is actually a cyclone, a different design than i6. It has no diaphragm.



The vacuum is created different.



Also, if ingestion occurs, the cylinder bank that gets it should be all disabled, not only 3 cylinders. Why is the 4th healthy?
