Catch Can Filling

Postby cmonteiro1 » Mon May 19, 2014 12:42 am

Been a while since I've posted but wanted to get some feedback from the pros. I'm finding my catch can is filling up with oil very quickly and I wanted to check on what the potential causes could be so I could start my process of elimination.

Thanks for any feedback.

When I had that issue, it was because I had blown ringlands. The pressure will escape from the cylinders and into the crankcase. Presure pushed out lots of oil out the vent tube and into my catch can. So I recommend a compression test on ur cylinders
