Default BEWARE whom ever has catch can cold weather

To all who have an Oil catch can that live in colder climates.

I checked my catch can yesterday to find a white soupie mess in it.
now before anybody jumps to conclusions it is not in my engine only the catch can. In the colder climates the warm oil and empty space above it will tend to condensate and cause water droplets to fall into the oil in the catch.

And without the can, the moisture would go,,,,,,,,,

=)

,,,go where it normally does, back into the intake.

Not a problem, just different looking than summertime.

The (cold) C can is only condensating the moisture from the crankcase gases/fumes. (water is also a by-product of combustion)

In summer, they never cool off enough to turn into water. In winter, when they hit the cold can, they do. Water mixes with the oil in the C can and it gets milky,,

No worries,,,

be sure to keep them empty too. If full, they can freeze and clog your line which will probably cause a big mess somewhere (wherever it finally vents, usually the dipstick).

During the Hemi Engineer chat a few weeks ago they said Mopar was looking at coming out with one. They said it is a good thing to use because it keeps the crankcase vaporized oil from going back into the intake.

Without one, there really is no major issue but the can does help keep things just that much cleaner inside the motor.

I wonder if we can't come up with a foam sleeve to go over the catch can to keep the cool outside air from the can . I'll have to see if I can't come up with something . Home Depot here I come .
