    Smile oil catch tank

    got my catch tank today and got it fitted straight away as i just got the car back from garage after having a new inlet manifold , timing belt and water pump fitted.Decided to fit the tank in a closed system loop first to see if it made any difference.

    Is that hose going to stand up to the heat of the engine?

    I've ordered a catch tank for my 2.2dti. I've also ordered some blue silicone hose so should stand up to the heat.

    How did you attach the bracket to the bulkhead? Did you just drill into it? I may put mine on the battery box as I was abit worried about drilling into the bulkhead and hitting something behind!

    you need to be careful that with the length of those hoses and the tank being higher that the vapour doesn't condense before getting to the tank and just runs back... maybe not an issue now but could cause probs in the winter if it freezes.
