    Re: Oil Catch Can

    The purpose of the catch can is to minimise oil vapour finding its way from the sump air space back into the intake. Once in the intake, the oil vapour can (and will) add to the carbon build-up.

    Re: Catch Can vs vent to atmosphere

    Nothing prevents you from doing it, except your conscience. It is exactly like removing the CAT, EGR and throwing your rubbish out the window.

    Re: Ford 3,2 manual vs auto

    Does the Ford auto transmission have a dipstick?
    If so, and if the oil is the correct colour and clean and not smelly and if it drives fine, then why not.

    Re: Towing in 4th

    With a manual box you really should target the direct drive gear for heavy towing. It used to be 4th gear, but the 6 speed boxes may be different.

    I think when this Covid thing is over, I'll pop in to see you on my way to attend an F1 race again. Then we can drink a few warm beers and strip my rental car's dash, just for old time's sake.

    Very normal. You are experiencing the lock-up clutch in the torque converter doing exactly what it is supposed to do. That drop in revs is the clutch locking up.

    Re: Price of new Pajero SWB (2007 - 2011)

    A car with a logical sequence of services can not have a turned back odometer.
    A diesel turbo that doesn't have an acceptable service record is a really big risk.
