Oil Catch Can Install.Need Help.

Was installing an oil catch can on my 2010 taco and need to see where the PCV is located on the truck. I know it should have a hose running from the intake manifold to a valve cover. I found a location where to mount the catch can, just to need to make sure I've found the right place to tap into. I've included some pics, maybe someone out there can lead me in the right direction. The last pic shows where I think the PCV valve is located. Its the left side of the engine, with the engine cover removed.

Thanks, what size of hose did you use. I got some 3/8 inch fuel injection hose I can use to run from the intake manifold to the catch can then back to the valve cover. Also just curious, how did you run the hoses since you have a s.c?

The valve covers hold in the oil vapors feomthw engine the Pcv valve in the covers enter the supercharger so any oil vapors from the engine will go into the intercooler, so I put a catch can to minimize the amount of oil
being put into the air going into the intercooler. Many s/c guys have them

Thanks for the info. I didn't pick up on the fact you had a super charger. Saw a tube vid on that f---- in cool. Had a diesel at work leak oil (turbo seal) into intercooler and then did not shut down. Ran until it ran out of oil and found it hours later siezed.

Not just for FI but NA also benifits from the catch can. Keeps all that sludge out of the engine.

So i just finished installing the catch can. I had a universal one laying around, bought it on Ebay. Pretty simple. Check out the pics, also check out the one where i circled the two points from which I tapped into. One of them is on the intake manifold, the other is on the valve cover. I just pinched the clamps at each point removed the hose, then ran 3/8 inch fuel injection hose from the manifold to the catch can, then another piece of hose from the catch can to the PCV valve located on the valve cover. IF anyone has any questions just send me a PM. If you're wondering the total cost was about 30 dollars. The catch can was about 20 and the pieces of hose and a few clamps another 10 dollars. Then again this is just an estimate I had all these things in my tool box.

I used this bolt located under the brake fluid reseivor. The catch can came with a bracket, so i attached the bracket to the catch can then took the nut off the bolt. This is the same bolt that holds the brake fluid resevior to the booster, i then slipped the bracket into the bolt and then screwed the nut back in. I hope you can see what i did in the attacheed pic. BTW this ebay can is quality, made out of aluminum and beautifully assembled.

This catch can seems a little better than the one I have cause it has the drain plug on the side. Mine has it on the bottom, which means I'm going to have to unbolt the can to drain the oil. Not a big deal, but may upgrade to this one in the future. Nonetheless its 24 dollars.
Hey guys heres another link to another catch can http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JDM-G...Q5fAccessories
Also what i did with my catch can is I opened the can, and stuffed it with a pot scrubber which I bought at Wal MArt in the dishwashing soap section. I think the brand of the pot scrubber was "ChoreBoy" I then put a silicone bead around the top of the can to ensure a tight seal and closed the lid. The pot scrubber gives more of a surface area from which the vapors going through can attach to. This should trap more waste. Remember steam distillation from Chemistry. Also used the pot scrubber cause it doesn't have loose bits unlike steel wool, which may make their way into the engine..
Here's one in black, except might have to get a little creative when installing where I installed my nonetheless:

I know, bringing a thread back from the dead...

Question for the NA guys with a catch can. Over time, how much oil/waste/etc have your cans collected? How often have you cleared them or needed to?

One issue with that question is that every engine is different.

Roger, totally understood.

I figured everyone would have a different answer. I was interested in seeing what the folks who have done the mod would say and what type of driving they do.

It's like asking "How do you like your nitto grapplers (or insert part/mod)?" Every truck and every driver are different... So...roger, totally understood.

Thanks for the input though.

Personally when I get one I will check every time I fill up. My friend's 6.0 GTO(known for losing oil) was about 1/2 full at every oil change.

Reason why I brought the thread back from the dead was because I saw on another forum a CRV owner was trying to get the best mpg he could. He added a DIY catch can using an air compressor air/moisture separator. I had a buddy do the same on his SCed new model mustang and he says it definitely helps.

Cheap mod but if it helps keep a clean engine by cleaning the air recirculated back into the intake and potentially help gas mileage...why not. To each there own. Hope some tacoma owners with catch cans can chime in.
