Catch Can Treasure

Installed a Berger catch can 5k miles ago, and thought I'd share what ended up inside since the last oil change... about an ounce of liquid oil, and some yummy sludge on the bottom.

Poured a 5L jug of LiquiMoly ACEA-C3 5W-30, and filled the rest of the way with Pennzoil Euro 5W-30. Replaced the Korean oil filter with a new one

Re: Catch Can Treasure

Interesting Maybe?

No idea what we're looking at. No idea what the implications are. No idea where the catch can mounts in the big picture of a diesel engine. No idea if this is good bad or otherwise. Assuming that you are posting with the intent of being helpful and providing useful info to other owners, some more context and objective analysis would be really useful.

Thanks and look forward to learning more about how you're bettering your Jeep diesel experience from your catch can installation.

Re: Catch Can Treasure

Why are you mixing brands of engine oil?

Re: Catch Can Treasure

I see the Berger cans are for BMW's. Which kit did you use and what, if any, extra hoses and parts did you use for the installation. Some pic's would be really useful

Re: Catch Can Treasure

this is the back story. Halfway in the thread the BMS can turns out to be the best option (so far).

Yikes, was this your first oil change? How many miles on your ED so far? I've had mine installed for about the same length of time, but started at 15k and haven't seen anything like this. Amount of oil caught is roughly the same though.

No reason, I had some Pennzoil left over from the 2x 6 packs I bought before

For plumbing, I used the factory hose from the crankcase, and the J shaped hose that came in the box to go to the intake. I had to use a 2 inch piece of the other included hose as a spacer. This is the N54 kit, which includes enough hose to mount above the driver's side power box. http://r.ebay.com/rgJsP7

Thanks leon! Yup, this thread branches off that discussion. A read through that should answer most questions.

Nope, my second. I've been keeping 5k oil changes, tire rotations, etc. The first change I put in 8.5 qts of Pennzoil Euro. Current odo is just over 10k.

Re: Catch Can Treasure

If you overfill these Diesels they will blow off the extra oil and possibly cause harm to the engine/turbo. This Vehicle should only take 8qts. That is draining it overnight and completely drying out the filter cavity(less oil if you don't wait that long.) Save the 1/2 qt, you don't need to add that much.

Noted. 8 qts usually puts me right between min and max, that's why I've added the extra 1/2 qt. I'll keep it at 8 next time. Thanks!

Just keep an eye on those dealer techs. I do my own oil changes, so I know that when I took my Jeep in for the timing chain cover gasket fix it had 8 quarts of oil onboard. When I got it back I immediately changed my oil and drained over 9 quarts from the vehicle in a steady stream of oil from the drain.

My guess is they added the oil back, immediately checked the dipstick, saw it read low (like it will at first), and "topped it off".

Either that or my Jeep has miraculous oil synthesis capabilities.

Is anyone using the catch can experiencing any improved or diminished fuel economy by having it installed? Or should it not be affecting the fuel economy at all?
