    When you start increasing the boost, you can often track the oil mousse as it starts leaking at any joint or connection, especially at the intake manifold onto the head. As the mousse can foul spark plugs in a SIC motore, it is a good idea to catch it before it hits the combustion chamber. As it is another chore to clean, I'd avoid it for as long as possible.

    Anyone else have experience with the Provent catch can?
    I have one fitted to my Ford Ranger 2.2 also bought from Western Filters.
    It does take awhile before it starts collecting oil but this also depends on how much oil vapour your engine produces.
    My old 2006 Isuzu KB breathed heavy and collected a fair amount of oil between services.
    I have only drained about 200ml since fitting the Provent to my Ford after about 25000km.

    Rather screw the top off and check the filter inside and you should see some oily wetness beginning to form.

    Provent is likely one of the best on the market.
    That coalescing filter works better than these empty cavity/baffle design ones that people try to flog especially the Autostyle types with zero baffling!
    It takes proper design and engineering to make a proper one, not just a can with two pipe fittings welded on...

    Update:

    I did check inside the can. The filter element has already some good amounts of "moisture" to it.

    When I installed it, it was bone dry.

    I have a Provent style catch can in my Pajero. It catches heaps of oil. It might be silly but did you install the filter element and the hoses the correct way round.

    I have added a photo in case anyone with a Pajero wonders how put in the catch can with a snorkle.

    Have the Provent 200 on 2.2 Puma 110 - also ordered from Australia - with some extra filters. Does catch small amounts - but read later that the Puma/Ford engine also has some some way of minimising oil vapour escaping?

    I think there is a confusion with oil catch cans connected to the EGR, and fuel filters to catch water?

    iCerMax makes fuel conditioning units and has a unit for cars that separates water from diesel (not a filter it only separates the two).

    Ek dink nie die onderwerp gaan oor enige van die 2 bo genoem nie.

    This is not about EGR or Water Seperation.

    Catch Can simply filters the oil from the blow by/crank case inside the engine. And keeps it out of air coming into the engine/turbo.

    I have one from Motorcade installed. Before I overhauled engine (including rings) I would get a fair amount of oil in it at every service. After averhaul I get none.

    Usually it runs from the head breather to the catch can, back to the air intake, between the airfilter and the turbo.

    Yip.
    Any connection after the turbo will inflate the sump.
