Any help appreciated!! 😩
I have recently installed a Forge catch can. The one which utilizes the stock pcv. FMCTMK6...

After two days found that oil spot on my garage floor. Visual inspection showed an oil spill on the chain side. Alternator's belt and all the area there, along with the boost pipe and engine floor are covered with oil.

Anyone knows what could have happened?!

Has the actual can caught any oil? I would be tempted to check the pipes for any blocks or even the entry/exit points of the can. If there is a blockage somewhere it could be the pressure is forcing the oil out of the rubber sleeves covering the pipe ends. Or has the can got a point in which to empty the oil collected and is this open?

It's brand new. 2 days old.
I removed it and nothing was blocked.
Seems the blocking rear exit of pcv doesn't work right...

For anyone else, translation is:


George I decided to leave the pcv valve without oil catch can. It does not do as crazy a job as they advertise it .. it is poppies.

Wont you still need the pcv to work as normal?

How else will the crankcase get vented?

Isn't the can just somewhere for the oil to condense out into?

I don't understand the price either, but I'm probably missing something.
