500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

JLT air oil separator Catch Can was installed when car had 100 miles on it. I had one of these on my last car after I replaced the stock intake manifold for the Ford Racing Intake Manifold with the shorter runners. The stock intake dripped oil for days. The oil comes from the PCV connection from your passenger side to the intake manifold. The oil gets sucked into your intake manifold and gums up the throttle body, intake manifold, valvetrain and builds up lots of carbon inside your motor.

The pics above show what I caught in 400 miles of driving around town mostly and about 100 miles on the highway.

If the price of one of these is out of your budget you can make one from lots of items at Home Depot, Lowes or even a hardware store for probably 20 bucks.

The hose connected to the intake manifold. It leads down to a can that say JLT on top. Connects to passenger side valve cover. JLT sells the kit and it is plug and play. All you do is click the tabs to take the stock hose off and replace with the unit you see here. My 8 year old did the swap, it's that easy.

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

Nah they would not void the warranty for that and it can go back to stock in 2 min. I have seen dealers put them on cars as dealer add ons at Chevy dealers on Camaros. JLT can costs about 100 bucks. I got one at a substantial discount through a friend or I would have made it. I made one for my last car and eventually got one from a friend. If you do a search on google for diy air oil separator catch can mustang s197 you will see lots of articles and pics with part numbers. Or you can even find kits on ebay. The JLT is nice though because it made using the stock hoses and check valves which I personally like.

Couldn't find one for a six on AM, but here it is on JLT: http://jlttruecoldair.com/ZenCart/in...482srncgiqqf30

It seems like this is something more for a GT than a six, but it sure does seem like a good idea. Is there a downside other than the cost of the part?

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

AM carries it for the 3.7 as well but I don't know if they have the best pricing or not. No downside to running these. You can put one on any motor that has a pvc system which is every car that is in the USA since the mid to late 70's. Prior to that they just ran breathers on the valve covers or hoses that ventilated to under the car and it would just spit out the oil. Some companies have these installed on cars right from the factory. My brother has a 2010 Camaro and it came with a canister that has a huge filter in it it that is a throw away assembly and you get a new one on major service intervals. He swapped it for a catch can though because it will pay for itself in just one visit to the dealer as the replacement part is what he paid for a catch can off of ebay and used fuel line hoses and some elbow connections he had laying around.

All this does is keep the oil that gets past the baffles inside the valve covers and oil that is heated up to a vapor contained before it goes back into the intake to burn. Normally it would be returned to the intake to burn through the PCV (Pollution Control Valve) system which drips the oil through the intake. This system works for pollution as it doesnt allow the oil to drip out of the motor onto the road. The downside to a PCV system is that it creates a lot of carbon build up and sludge inside the engine. Great for the enviroment / Bad for engine life.

I have taken apart an intake on a Subaru that was having throttle lag and was just very sluggish when you needed to put your foot to the floor and the throttle body and intake was all gummy from sludge that built up from the PCV return that was ahead of the throttle body. It took a lot to get it clean. The intake manifold was just as bad. In reality a catch can would have kept that engine performing like it did when it was new. Once it was clean a catch can was installed and it never needed to be addressed again. The car was only a ear old at the time too.

Instead of returning the oil back to the intake to get burned you are are collecting it to recycle when you do your oil change. A much more efficient system to prolong engine life.

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

This thing is stupid retarded expensive for what it is. I highly suggest you guys wanting one (honestly you should) to google making an oil catch can and make your own. They're just a container for letting the oil drip out of the line and the gasses to still pass through.

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

Actually their is a filter and a baffle in it too. So it does a much better job of catching oil than just a can with two hoses in it. I could take a pic of the top portion underside if you want to see it for reference in building one Sanguin. LMK.

That said, I have built them before using fuel line, A compressor water/air separator, a steel scrunchy used to clean pots (As a baffle filter) and a few elbows and hose clamps. All for under 30 bucks. If I didnt get this one for close to that I would not have bought it. I have the stock PCV hose and connectors and could build one out of that for under 20 bucks... This one looks nicer for sure though with its billet aluminum casing and stock appearance.

YW.

Lots of companies make these. JLT is the nicest looking one IMO but they all do a good job as long as they have a baffle and filter inside. OR like I said, make it.

I think PVC stands for positive crank case ventilation

PCV, and you're right. PVC is a type of plastic.

Looks nice and clean. The one thing that I like about the JLT over all the others, making one is that it has a stock appearance.

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

New on here but I have a question. After going to American Muscle, I found the following entry about the JLT Air Oil Separator Catch Can.

"... doesn't belong - and cause damage. Premium Quality Kit. This high quality kit includes the JLT Oil Separator, which features billet aluminum construction with a satin anodized finish for superior style ...

Looks like American Muscle is trying to get rid of any LIABILITY issues. This WARNING is on the first twelve items that came up.

Re: 500 miles on car. I recommend you do this ASAP if you haven't yet

Did you read it from the beginning? This is what it says...

JLT Performance Satin JLT Oil Separator - Passenger Side (07-12 GT500)

Reduce Sludge. In your Mustang's engine, crankcase exhaust is re-circulated back through your PCV system and intake, taking with it large amounts of oil vapors. This JLT Oil Separator kit installs in your PCV line to filter out oil before it can get into your engine's intake - where it doesn't belong - and cause damage. Premium Quality Kit. This high quality kit includes the JLT Oil Separator, which features billet aluminum construction with a satin anodized finish for superior style and durability. The 2 oz. tank base is easily removed for draining during oil changes, and is designed with a o-ring for a leak-free seal. Plus, JLT added a Ford Motorcraft metal mesh PCV pre-filter to prevent any oil from getting back into your intake. Easy Installation. This complete kit includes a factory PCV line that has already been modified with the necessary fittings and attached to the separator for a true plug-and-play installation. Application. This JLT Oil Separator kit is designed for 2007 to 2012 Mustang GT500s. Designed for direct installation on the passenger's side only (same side as the PCV valve).

What you posted was part of the entire paragraph...

Anyone know any Canadian dealers that would carry this or is it something I need to order online?
