Thumbs up Catch can is a must!

So just in case there are those members/owners out there that have not invested in a catch can, all I can say is wow and glad that I installed one after emptying it out today!

I installed it on my SRT8 on 8/7/12 with 54,424 miles and emptied it out today at 57,672 miles and the whole thing was almost full! Imagine all that going back into the intake manifold!

Wow. I usually get about that much when I dump it... but not in 3K miles. Seems like a lot to me. ??

But as you said - you now have that much oil NOT in your manifold. And that's always a good thing.





.... going out to check my can now ... can't wait for the winter foamy oil in the can ...

It did seem a lot to me as well but do you think it filled up faster since it's my daily driver and most of my driving is within city with quite a good amount of idling at stops/red lights/traffic?

Uhhhh... I don't know. I've heard it's bad to consistently get a lot of oil in the can, and then I've also heard that it really doesn't mean that much. I'm not educated on it enough to know... but I do know that I enjoy dumping oil that was planning on going into my manifold.

But I do think that's a lot. I can't remember exactly when I last dumped my can but it was easily at least 3K miles ago. I'd guess more like 6K to 7K miles. So I just went and pulled my can right now... looks to me that's about half as much oil over twice as many miles...

EDIT: And by the way, I do the exact same type of driving that you do...

6.1L vs. 5.7L would explain some of the difference.

Did you really just go outside and empty it out and take pictures within the last 20 minutes? lol

One other difference is average ambient temps and engine running temp.

Hmm well TX temperatures and weather can be really wild. One day it will be blazing hot and the next it's cold and windy so who knows.

Yes I did. I have a rule - when I see someone on here showing their can contents and I haven't emptied my can in awhile, I gotta go do it immediately. One time someone posted their can and I literally had forgotten that I had a can until that moment. Went outside and sure enough, it was full to the rim.

Well, on my 5.7 I run a 180 tstat with fans at 185/195. And in OH right now it's been in the 50's I'd say on average for most of the miles on this can dump. If that helps our research study here.

Yeah, but what's cold to you? It's 28 here right now. No dog walk tonight.

Convinced! Need to get my theme under my hood in order so I can start there. Already pulled my Tb and manifold off and had to deep clean due to poor throttle response and hesitation.
