    FYI- I’ve owned a few bikes where there wasn’t an actual ‘can’ or container; just a wide-ish, rubber hose with a removable plug in the end instead. The hose is usually routed down towards the rear/bottom of the engine so i’d just pull the plug and drain them every service.

    Hey Everyone,
    So someone asked me what to do if you have a manual transmission because where I mounted the can (for my automatic), those holes are used by the clutch reservoir on the manual transmission. I came up with an idea to bring the bracket out.

    Here is the video if can help anyone else in addition to the person that contacted me.

    Thanks everyone and have a great day!!!!!

    Three years old, 35k miles, my truck. Never had the intake tube off, always replaced the air filter with OEM at 12k.

    This oil left a trail into the throttle body and tb flapper.

    This is the residual stuff that a proper catch can will collect before it goes into the intake and the throttle body.

    Could I get some words to go along with these pics please? I'm getting ready to install one of these and need to know how and where the hoses hook up. I think these pics might answer my question but I'd rather be sure. Thanks. :bananadead:

    I'm not using a JLT can so "J side" and "T side" don't mean anything. My can is marked "In" and "Out". And it didn't come with instructions. :bananadead:

    If you have oil there pre throttle body, you have bigger problems. Air flows INTO that hole as the air pressure is higher pre throttle body vs post. About the only thing i could think of that would cause oil there is simply some oil vapors rising up the breather tube when the hot motor is shut down.

    Needless to say a catch can wont stop oil from collecting there... thats not even the tube you would be putting it on.

    The blow-by travels from the valve cover into the can, gets filtered and out of the can into the intake manifold. If you use the JLT instructions as reference the “T” should be your “In” and the “J” should be your “Out”. Unless whoever made your can didn’t intend those markings to be the direction of the gases.

    I made a catch can for my power steering reservoir on my cars because the vent hole always leaves a film on the cap for whatever reason.

    The catch can is simple two tubes in a can. One goes almost to the bottom, you stuff some filter material in there like 00 steel wool or something to give a surface to stick to the oil. Then the second tube is just through the top and the air goes down the big tube, through the filter material, and out the top. Usually the top just vents to the air. This one looks like it goes back into the intake.

    The catch can just keeps the intake cleaner. The PCV valves or whatever else that will be failing after a decade without a catch can will survive longer. The intake will look cleaner. Catch cans are essentially just emissions delete devices as the oil vapor is burned off for emissions reasons.

    That being said, if you don't keep your vehicle forever then who cares? In the BMW world the complicated oil vinturi things clog up and cause all kinds of issues around 120k and they are not inexpensive to replace or easy to get to. I have been deleting most of the emissions related stuff from the engines as they get older and I service more things. The heater hoses to the intake manifold and everything that gets the engine hot faster can go. It does extremely little for emissions. The air pump that blows air into your exhaust manifold for 20 seconds on a cold start can go. Just about everything but the cats can go.

    Catch cans make sense if you have a prima-donna BMW with individual throttle bodies, but the Yota will probably run to 300k before a rebuild and then you can delete all the extra emissions crap when you replace the cats with new ones.
