Installing one will give you a CEL unless you make some fairly heavy mods with it.

There’s a dude on YouTube with a channel who’s done it on a Ram with the EcoDiesel , I think his channel has EcoDiesel in it. I highly encourage you to search around and check it out

I started this way back in June after talking with a friend who had installed a catch can on his Colorado. Since then I have put 5K miles on my Jeep and I have not had to add any oil. So what would a catch can catch?

I did not. I don't see why you would, you're simply splicing this into the middle. It doesn't impede the vacuum going through it.
Can you post a picture of how and where you mounted? What other parts you had to buy and if you are collecting any oil with it?

It has taken me this long to get back to everyone because frankly it has been a frustrating failure. Right after my last post it threw a code and I have been working on it since. I cleared the code and tried a bunch of things to make this work without a code. I used larger fittings and hoses, I tried smaller, nothing works consistently.

One code says its open like the old elephant hose used on the CRD Liberties and the other says there is a restriction needing service.

The link below describes the situation and what I think is the cure but I will have to change my approach and give it another go this winter. The link is from an older Ram 1500 but he explains it all very well.

Dumb question, but what does an "oil catch can" do and what' the advantage?
An oil catch can catches oil keeping it from being reintroduced into the engine in the incoming air.

I have one of these I got for free but I haven’t put it on. Parker is sure proud of their product. The only cool thing about the Parker one is the bottom valve is a check valve so when the truck shuts off any oil it catches can drain back into the crank case.

These engines are so efficient I don’t think this is necessary. Maybe on my 12v Cummins because it vents directly to the atmosphere but even it doesn’t use oil after 279k.

These can handle a lot of CFM.
