Can any of you shed some light on my problem?
I may have an issue with my gti180's breather setup.Yesterday whilst on an event. My best deduction as to what happened is the engine filled the catch tank, and then chucked about a litre of oil out of the top of the catch tank (oil everywhere,smoke, the works).
I am trying to get to the bottom of why it has happened, the catch tank is plumbed up as follows. Two inlet manifold breathers blanked off, cam cover breather and the breather on the side of the head connected together and plumbed into a catch tank. The catch tank then returns to the sump.
I am thinking have misunderstood how the breather setup works on this engine. Or maybe it was something stupid like overfilled with oil (although i still wouldn't expect it to lose containment in such a big way!)
All advice appreciated.
