Hello from North Carolina

Recommended Posts

My name is Travis, and I'm from North Carolina. I curently own a 2009 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab 5.3L 4x4. Not my first forum, just had enough of the other forum I was on. Anyways the past year I have owned my used 09 silverado and currently have 103,000 miles on it. I am experiencing oil consumption and have delt with GM, the oil consumption test, and mechanics and people in general. Since I was only burning the acceptable 1 qt every 2000 miles nothing was never done last year. Currently I cant go a week without burning a quart. I have a intune tuner

(runs in V8 all the time) and checked the compression ( its normal ) and I am finally to the solution I am at now.


What do you all think about an oil catch can. I found a hose which is dumping oil into my intake. Its something to do with emissions where it is only suppost to be redirecting gases blown by the piston back into the intake and burned. Well mine is redirecting oil. I am thinking about an oil catch can installed on this line would be a solution.

It can't hurt, it is a popular modification with the camaro guys, the 1LE pkg even comes with a catch can.


I have been thinking of adding one to my car (not so much my truck)


What brand are you looking at?

Reporting in on oil consumption. Out of all the things done to stop oil consumption this method worked the best. I just cut the PVC hose, sealed off the intake, and put a water bottle on the end of the hose coming out of the valve cover and after 4.5 hours on the interstate not one drop of oil burned and also better gas mileage
