    My understanding of the 2.4/2.2 tdci engine is it does have a baffle oil separator within the rocker cover BUT the more complete version including filter is found on some Ford variants
    The filter goes where the beer holder in the rocker cover cap is on those variants

    Iíve fitted a provent, it drains to a hose with a bung

    I drain it each service and get less than 20mL of oil???

    I too have fitted a catchcan get the same amount(20ml per 10000km).

    Mine was a kit provided by Provent, time will tell if I've done the right thing or not.

    The HPD catch can isn't a good performer in actual comparison testing. In a shameless self-plug have a read of the linked article I wrote for Unsealed 4X4 using data from lab testing by Ben Mullins (Isuzurover on this forum) to see what catch cans do and how the cheap, expensive, plastic, metal, brand name and copycat catch cans perform against each other.

    Hi All,

    So I haven't fitted a catch-can.....My 2013 110 has done 145000km and has the same power as it always had. I doesn't do a lot of towing, but when it does it will do a 2000km single block(family holiday with boat) using wide throttle(EGR closed). Most of my travelling for daily driving is at 110km/h indicated(104km/h on the GPS), so maybe not a lot of exhaust gas being re-circulated?

    So my question.......

    Has anyone pulled a 2.2 Puma manifold off at similar km's without a catch can fitted and found a lot of soot buildup? I'd be really interested to see if the Puma separator is OK?

    Pictures would be a bonus!

    Not exactly your question but still relevant

    2.4 tdci EGR / Inlet Manifold clean + VCV Replacement

    This was my 2.4 at 70,000km

    My guess is your 2.2 at twice that distance your intake system will be even more clogged up?

    I donít have any leaking LRs. The current two are faultless.

    I refuse to accept even seeping oil and rectify immediately. My TD5s (2) and my V8 Comp spec D1 never had oil leaks for more than 2-3 days before being rectified.


    Sorry, probably an overreaction but Iím annoyed by the constant stereotypes and the amazing level of acceptance amongst some owners of sub-standard QA/QC or R&M.

    Mine doesn't leak oil either. It's just poor maintenance.
