  1. Gen2 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    Time for install: 45 minutes Tools required: this can be a case by case depending on where you plan on installing. You’ll need; (2) 9/16ths brass 90 degree connectors (2) 9/16ths straight hose connectors (8) possible hose clamps (I used 2) (2) 28469 hoses from Napa (what I used, they have a 90...

    a few weeks ago i helped a neighbor with her cruze. the wastegate actuator was full of oil, the throttle body was full of oil, the charge pipes were full of oil and the intercooler also had oil. reading this forum it seems like several others have this problem also. racer X has this Sonic Catch...

    How do I install a oil catch can
  4. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Pulled the air box lid off yesterday to eyeball the air filter. Anyways, had to remove the clamp on the turbo side to get the lid off and noticed oil I side the intake tract. Actually pooled inturbo inlet (see picture I attached). I'm guessing this is from the pcv valve puking. Pulled the...

    Here is a new post on Cruzetalk.com related to an oil Catch Can on the 1.4T. [removed off-topic sentence]. I am making no claims about the benefits at this point, so my goal is to figure this out with real world personal experience using my time and capital. I am designing custom machined...

    I epoxied the hole in the intake manifold where the junk orange "check valve" is supposed to be, and figured an oil catch can couldn't hurt, just to make sure nothing was getting fed to my turbo. Here are the pics of the install.

    With all this valve cover talk i remembered a very important point. Ebay catch cans do not have the required flow volume that our PCV system requires. With this said if you install a restrictive catch can onto a healthy cruze you can blow out the Orange PCV change valve, then it will...

    I want to put a catch can on my 15 Cruze LTZ 1.4t. I run one on my Camaro ZL1 and I am always surprised at the amount of oil I drain out of it monthly. My questions are: 1. How should this catch can be routed? A diagram showing what lines go where would be a HUGE help. 2. What catch can is...

    So i just replaced my BKR7E's for the fourth time in 3 months. Dealer claims to be oil catch can causing the problem, Anyone else foul out spark plugs with oil? I don't have much for mods other than the BKR7E, Oil Catch can, Catless DP and custom 2-1/2 Exhaust. Oil only makes it up the 1st...

    I recently put a catch can on my 1.4, but seem to be having and issue. When I'm doing hard pulls, the car smokes during shift changes. Was wondering if any one else had this issue or if I'm the only one.
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    As stated in the title my oil from the catch can has a small hint of gas to it. I smelled my dipstick and cant pick up the smell. If this stupid phone would let me upload pictures i would post a picture of what came out. Is it normal? I suppose i should mention only mods im running is a catless...

    so this is a picture of the oil catch can that I tig welded out of aluminum in a class I took for school. It is not my first try. It is my forth design. It attatches to the motor mount that sits in front of the water pump so It should flex with the engine and not break any hoses. It has a two...

  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I've seen so many different opinions on this topic having to do with our Cruzes, but no on has really stated whether or not it is a good idea to install one. I know a few of the members are running them in the cars. Basically I'm just trying to figure out if ota worth my time and do I need to...
  16. Gen1 Diesel How-To & DIY Library
    I've spent some time with the stock intake, looking for ways to improve on its hokey design. As an emission requirement, valve train blow-by gasses must be recirculated back into the intake system. But this carries aerated oil particles that will accumulate and form a varnish as they are...

  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I installed my catch can way back when ever. I've gotten 700+ miles on the car with it on there. Drove to vegas and back and many other places. No issues. I go away for a week to seattle and when I come back, the **** car is puking oil everywhere! Crap. Long story short, the catch can is the...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Thought I'd put up some info even though it isn't on the cruze (yet) since some members are seeing oil in their charge pipes. Basically what happens is there is a Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve that allows vapors in the crank case (where your oil sits) to be vented back into the...
