Default T25 1.9 TD Oil from breather pipe

Iíve recently brought a 1.9TD converted T25, and its seems oil is coming out the breather pipe and dripping on the axel, thus covering everything in oil, including the back of the van due to its brick aerodynamics.....

My local garage said itís just because the engine is slightly leaning over ( to make it fit the engine bay) and theyíre not sure what to suggest apart from moving the breather pipe a bit to stop it blowing out so much.

Is this a common problem, or has the conversion just been bodged, anyone know if itís an easy fix, or a good garage that could sort it or anyone in the TN postcode area that knows what theyíre doing want to do it for some cash ?

Or have a brought a piece of s**t problem do you think ?

Would £500 get an engine change if I have, either sticking with diesel or going aircooled.

cant you put the end of the breather into a catch pot / bottle and empty it as required...instead of it covering the rear of your van?

Temporary fix !!!!

Check your oil level first.

The AAZ or 1Z dip sticks will be wrong due to the T25 sump which "should" of been used so get a new oil filter and put in 4.5 ltrs of oil then mark the dip stick, if this has already been done then the check where the breather pipe is going.

On a standard set up AAZ (ie not in a T25) the oil breather system goes from the bottom of the right hand side of the engine to the top rocker cover then to the inlet pipe.
