What does a Quality Oil Fumes Catch Can do?
Firstly, if you have a modern CRDi Diesel then you need an Oil Fumes Catch Can.
It will catch better than 98% of all oiley fumes entering the inlet manifold of your Diesel.
With no more oil fumes in the inlet manifold system, dirts and carbons also entering the inlet system cant stick.
"Get Rid of the Oil Fumes....Problem Solved"
GETTING A CATCH CAN, KEEPING DIESELS IN TUNE
Are technologies implemented to reduce emissions causing damage to your modern diesel engine? Oil Catch Can can fix this.
In order to comply with emission laws put in place to protect the environment, pretty much all modern diesel engines will have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and some will have an EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation). Although this technology has been implemented to decrease emissions, they can also be detrimental to your modern diesel.
The EGR can cause your engine to choke up through the build-up of soft carbons, due to an oily wet inlet manifold. However, this can easily be fixed through installation of a Crankcase Oil Fumes Filter (or Catch Can). The use of a Catch Can will drastically reduce the oily fumes that allow these carbons to continually build up in the inlet manifold. If left unattended, this gunk build-up will virtually choke your diesel to death. Once this filter system is installed, I advise you then have the inlet manifold system decoked.
The complexity of engines now would lead me to use cleaning systems rather than pulling apart much of the engine to physically clean out what is generally oily, soft gunk build-up. As diesel experts, we offer this service, but if you are not close to us, there definitely would be a diesel workshop near you also doing this.
After this nothing beats regular engine oil changes. For example, in a lot of motorhomes we see service intervals as long as 20,000km being recommended. Attractive for the car dealer selling you your rig, but it’s definitely not in your engine’s best interest to run contaminated oil this long. Change your engine oil at intervals no longer than 10,000km or less.
