oil catch can issues still!

Well after getting my car back the oil catch can is filling up even quicker than before! thus causing oil to be squirted out of the breather hole in the blower and there's heaps of oil all round the right side of the engine bay.
Anyone got any ideas as to what may be causing this?
Note: the car does have a little bit of blow by but no where near enough to be causing this.

Cheers, Dave.

Not knowing what happened to the car before....crankcase compression?? Stem seals?

Re: oil catch can issues still!

Another thing since i've got my car back is that it now requires a spring to hold the dipstick in cause apparently it was popping out, which i guess means there's pressure in the sump...???
i'll be ringing the place tomorrow and having a talk to them about it all.

Re: oil catch can issues still!

sounds like some prety serious blow by to me if it needs a spring to hold the dip stick in

Re: oil catch can issues still!

Vacuum hose, back one goes around and connects to inlet just behind the air filter, not the original Ford inlet elbow. The hole in the Ford inlet elbow needs to be blocked with a blower on. The front one goes into the inlet manifold I believe, see attched. Does that blower look familiar?

Re: oil catch can issues still!

catch can is currently located low down in the car (down in front of wheel arch) so i'm thinking about having a custom catch can made up and mounted near brake master cylinder (as it's about the only place one will fit) thus to have the oil catch can above the rocker cover like it should be. Do you think this will help solve the problem? Any other ideas?

Re: oil catch can issues still!

I reckon you should do a compression test.

Re: oil catch can issues still!

Sorry, there is no quick fix for this one. You have poor ring seal causing cylinder pressure to end up in the crankcase. Do a leakdown test to isolate any defective cylinders and bite the bullet and tear it down.

A quick yet illegal way to help is to use vacuum created by exhaust headers to extract crankcase pressure. This will of course put oil mist into the pipes and cause a slight blue smoking and off the scale emissions. I think Mr. Gasket makes a kit for this.
