Q: Oil catch can for an Accord V6

asked by on June 07, 2016

Are oil catch cans good? Should I get one for my Accord V6?

I doubt that it is a GDI car. If it’s gasoline directed injection, then yes go ahead. Put one on, it is a good idea. You don’t need it for a regular Honda - it doesn’t really need it - but if you have a gasoline directed injection engine and oil catch cans, this can keep oil from getting into the PCV system and then building up carbon on the intake valve.
