Installation of an Oil Catch Can
Hot-rod cars require extra components for extra safety and performance. If you have a car modified for speed,it needs an oil catch can installed. This can is designed to filter out the oil vapors from the crankcase,keeping your fuel's octane rating high and reducing any detonation risk. The exact installation varies depending on a number of factors,especially whether or not you installed a PCV system in your engine.
Things You'll Need
Steel wool
Oil catch can
Wrench
Screwdriver
Vacuum lines
Instructions
1. Fill the can with a small portion of steel wool if you're using a can that isn't internally baffled. The wool will function as a filter for the oil vapors as they pass through the can.
2. Depressurize the car's fuel system. In most cases,remove the fuel pump relay from the fuse box then run the engine until it stalls.
3. Choose a location in the engine compartment to mount the oil catch can. This depends greatly on the type and orientation of your engine,but there may be a good location on the frame rail autel.
4. Fasten the oil catch can to your mounting location within the engine compartment using the can's included bracket and its screws/bolts.
5. Disconnect the oil return line connecting the intake manifold to the PVC valve using a wrench on its fittings autel maxisys pro.
6. Connect the oil catch can to the PVC valve using a new vacuum line. Connect the can to the intake manifold with another vacuum line.
