Default Value in installing Oil Catch Can

Excuse my ignorance on this among other things, but I welcome any comment on the details associated with the installation of an Oil Catch Can on my recently purchased diesel 2009 NT

Hi all, i have no idea what to look for when purchasing a catch-can or what is a reasonable price. Can anyone recommend good brands and prices for the NT please?

I have read the ProVent link above and that's very helpful thanks.

They super easy to install, correct?.

thanks.

Fit the egr unit first. After this then fit the provent unit. Simple to install. Buy the kit that suits your vehicle. . I bought my kit from Western Filters. Cannot remember price..

[QUOTE=Dicko1;500128]Fit the egr unit first.

x2

If more than 150k i'd be inclined to clean inlet manifold and not bother with catch can.

If around 100k and not wanting to reset tappets until 150k or so I'd be inclined to fit a catch can and clean inlet manifold at the same time as tappet adjustment. The catchcan should slow down additional accumulation of sludge. I'm taking this option.

My reasoning behind not fitting catch can when you have cleaned the inlet manifold is that without the recirculated gas the oil should not turn to black sludge but create a film on the inlet manifold with excess being delivered to cylinders.

I don't run a catch can myself, but choose wisely if you decide to go down this path. From what I read (when I considered fitting one), if the catch can blocks, doesn't have some sort of vent / pressure relief or is an inadequate size you can end up causing more issues than you are trying to avoid.

That is why you buy a top model...provent. MAKE sure you do not use smaller diameter than factory hoses either. As I have posted on here before. My oil stays very clean indeed.. This will translate that my manifold will also be clean.
