Another catch can question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Looking into getting a catch can on my 2018 5.3 1500, trying to spend less than 100$ on one, (and brand suggestions welcome) but my main question is, say you forget to empty it? Is it now a small jar of oil and water waiting to get slurped up into the intake when you hit a big bump? I like the idea of the cans but can't factor out the potential goof up.

Don't forget, this is the internet, if you don't spent 200 dollar on a can than it won't be a catch can. I'm still trying to figure this out myself. 


This, just like if you don't have a catch can your truck will run like crap in 30k miles and the valves will be blocked by 50% and mpg as well as power will be half when new...

I tend to agree with both of you, I figured it's cheap insurance but why spend more than 100$ on one.


You may as well stuff a beer can with steel wool, punch to holes in it and call it a day. Why half ass it half the way, half ass it the whole way.
