You will gain nothing by putting a catch can of your car it will cause running problems as modern engines don't like the oil breather being vented to the atmosphere It will also cause you problems when the car goes for an MOT.

If you are that concerned about dirty oil being in your engine the best thing to do is change it more often.

Oil catch cans do not vent to atmosphere they actually condense the oil vapour into a liquid that catches in the bottom of the can thus reduce the oil vapour entering the air intake system. As such no effect whatsoever on mot test or any problems either in fact the opposite

Depends on the type used actually. If you look about on line there is a lot of places selling what is a small box with a filter than vents to the atmosphere.

To put one an a road car is a waste of time its the sort of thing used on race cars and thus require more maintenance than what is already there.

Even if it vented to atmosphere it wouldn't cause any damage at all!! It would be an mot fail though and potentially/likely vent carbon monoxide into the drivers cabin but no harm to the engine or its running.

A decent catch can vents back into the air intake and saves your engine from the sludge. No matter how much you change the oil there will be sludge build up from the oil in the air intake system and that causes inefficiency and potential problems with turbos, intercooler etc etc.

There are many a thread on here about the benefits

So whats it going to fail mot on? Lol

Emissions as the engine will not idle at the correct Rpm for a start.

Why bother mucking about with things that are more likely to cause problems than prevent any?

Regular oil and filter changes are the most important factors in extending engine life and if you are worried about oil contamination your time and money would be better spent in carrying these out more frequently.

I wouldnt bother myself but certain engines inc petrol ones do actually benefit from a properly fitted non venting catch can. Ive seen evidence from a non ford make.

Whether the 1,0 ecoboost is going to suffer the same way , only time will tell,

I would consider fitting one to any direct injection petrol engine, in view of the inlet valve carbon contamination that seems to be a potential issue with this design.

Especially with turbo varients, no fuel in inlet tracts to keep carbon build up at bay, ford in us have such issues allegedly with an engine type we dont see here.

hello ,

In the hose before the turbo , (see attached photo ) there is a element (white originally ) which seems to serve as a filter for oil vapors , with the Km it becomes yellow-brown , so oil enters the admission ! over many kms , it seems obvious that the engine suffer harmful contamination, if it is at the level of the valves and the intercooler , for me Oil Catch Can be very useful .

Hello :)

have you mounted , like me ,

a Mountune High flow secondary induction hose for mk7 1.0 T ecoboost ?

YES ?

then look inside , you will see the color of the oil deposit ,

I have induction hose black and yellow inside ! :cry:

worrying for the rest of the engine : valves , intercooler ...

short with an oil catch Can , it's clean . :rolleyes:
