JLT Oil Catch Can for 2015/2016 GT

Hello everyone,

So I installed a JLT Oil Catch Can on my 5.0 around 200 miles. Now I have 1,500 miles and decided to open it to see if it needed emptied. And there is like.....no oil in it. lol

Is this normal? I know the car is new and all but I figured it would catch something. Unless these cars are that much more improved? On my 2014 3.7, I would get a bunch of oil every 1,000 miles.

Nope, something's up

That is not normal. If you installed it correctly there should be oil in it the next day. It is not possible that your engine doesn't have oil vapors accumulating under that valve cover. They are going some where. Is the hose plugged?

JLT Oil Catch Can for 2015/2016 GT

Is it leaking? Is your car an auto?

Check the driver side hose, I'll bet there is oil in that one.

I have the catch can on my passengers side and after 200 miles there was a little in there.

JLT said they are making the drivers side soon.

Mine is an auto and just checked it again. The catch can is working.

JLT Oil Catch Can for 2015/2016 GT

It is installed and each side/clamp is secure. This is the passenger side catch can and my car is a manual.

There is a very light coating of oil at the bottom of the catch can. But nothing to really dump out.

Check to see if they have any plugs in yours.

Engine shouldn't matter auto or standard.

Mine works just fine, they don't have drivers side available yet.

Plugs? Like being clogged?

Some times when I buy things they have plastic clips or plugs so dust and stuff don't get in the tubes type of deal.

I took off the catch can and I don't see any items that need to be removed. There was a few droplets of oil covering the bottom so that tells me SOMETHING is moving through it.

I ran a pretty good amount of water through it and did not find any leaks or anything and it seems to flow ok throughout it. So maybe the car is not moving much oil at this time?

I sure hope you dried that thing out good. You don't want it sucking in water/ condensation and putting that in your intake 😱

My JLT catch can on the passenger side (A6 3.55's 5.0) has been in a little over 3,000 miles, and was installed at about 7,000 miles. I've emptied it every 1,000 miles, and each time there was about 3/4 of an inch of oil in it.
I would say something odd is going on with yours if it is catching no oil, or even nearly none.
For those here who have one of these on both sides.............does the driver's side catch can collect as much as the passenger side does?
Is it worth getting both?
EDIT:
JLT does not offer a driver's side separator for our engine..............odd.........maybe they will soon?

Some guys have modded their plumbing to allow the can to service both sides of the engine. I'm not entirely sure this is needed on the 6G. I will go out a trace the path of the Drivers side hose tonight. But I do know that there should be more than a film of oil in a properly installed catch can after over a 1000 miles.

Okay after looking at my 5.0 I know now that the Drivers side is an intake for the fresh air to enter the top of the engine. The tube runs to the valve cover from the air intake, there is no vacuum there because it's on the outside of the Throttle body. So no need for a second catch can.

Road Dog..............nice to have someone here who is technically proficient. The lines must be different than the 2010-2014 engine, huh? They do offer driver's side separators for those engines.
VERY nice to know we don't need one ---- thanks!

I have a JLT that is working. I've had it for about a year. I see that there's two types of filters that can be installed on the JLT. I have the silver mesh type. Does anybody use the cylinder screen? Should I switch to the cylinder version?

Hey everyone,

So I removed the catch can and looked into the port/connection on the passenger side of the engine/valve cover and saw this inside. Not sure if this is some sort of check valve or something else.

On my 2014, I don't remember that being there.

I tried to get a normal picture and tried to use Flash to try and make it as noticeable as possible.

Well, whatever that little black valve thing is, it seems to be attached to whatever is in there. I tried looking around and I can't find any pictures, videos, or threads of anyone mentioning it. So I wonder if it is new? Unless someone can pop off their catch can and look inside the passenger side engine connection to confirm with me.

that is a valve mechanism, it is a one way system.

Drove another 300 miles and now the catch can is picking up a decent amount of oil.

So all set here.

Zombie just to give you a comparison I've been logging the amount of oil in mine (JLT on passenger side only).

1091 miles, 2 mL
2280 miles, 2 mL
4650 miles, 4 mL

On my 2015 GT with auto trans I installed the JLT Oil Separator on the passenger side at 100 miles. The first time I checked it at about 2,000 miles it was about one third full.
