Hey, guys. It's Sara with americantrucks.com and today we have a review and install of the JLT V3.0 Satin Oil Separator fitting your '14 through '18 5.3 liter Chevy Silverado 1500s. Now this driver side catch can decreases the amount of blowby that's introduced back into your intake. Now if you're not sure what blowby is, it's the mixture of combustion gases that are left over that get pushed past your piston down to your crankcase and eventually get reintroduced to your intake. This can result in an oily substance covering your whole intake tract as well as your valves. Now to prevent this, you can introduce a catch can which traps this mixture inside the can and doesn't reintroduce it to your truck.This catch can works in line with your PCV system by filtering the blowby vapors and trapping the oily substance in the can and reintroducing the cleaned air into your truck's engine. This can can hold up to three ounces and JLT recommends checking it every 2,000 to 3,000 miles. This catch can is constructed from billet aluminum with a satin finish and features a stainless steel mesh and honeycomb aluminum filter. This is for the Silverado owner who's looking to protect their truck from blowby buildup on their intake and valves and is looking for a convenient way to trap it and remove it from their system.Coming in at around a $140, this is a budget friendly way to protect your investment. Now there are lower priced options available but they often only include the can leaving you to construct the hoses for yourself. But if you're looking for ease of install, this JLT kit comes with factory style connectors making this install completely plug and play.I'm giving this install one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It features a direct bolt up install and can be done within one hour. With that said, let's jump right into our install.For this install we used an impact gun, a Philips head screwdriver, a ratchet, a small extension, 13 millimeter socket and an 8 millimeter socket. All right, so the first step in our uninstall is to remove the two hoses at the back of this part of the intake so that we can remove it. Remove the PCV on each side.Next up, using an eight millimeter socket or flathead screwdriver loosen the clamp at the throttle body. Repeat that with the clamp going to the airbox. Now you can remove the intake. Next up, we're gonna remove the PCV line that is just below the throttle body. Press down on the gray tab, the same as the others, and remove it. Next up, we're gonna remove the other side of that line that's right behind the valve cover underneath this wiring harness. Remove the line completely. With a 13 millimeter socket, remove the bolt at the back of the firewall that's bracing the front of your truck.All right, so we have our catch can and bracket here. And we're gonna line up our bracket to the threaded holes on the top of our catch can. Grab the two screws that they've included and get this mounted up. Grab a Philips head screwdriver and tighten these down. Line up the catch can to the bolt that you just removed. And reinstall it.So you're gonna run the shorter hose on the inside to the intake manifold just behind the valve cover. Snap it into place. Route the longer hose underneath this wiring harness and connect it just underneath the throttle body. Snap it into place.Now you can reinstall your intake box. Make sure you're sliding it over the metal tab on the passenger side and line up all your hoses. Once the tube is in place, grab your eight millimeter socket and tighten this down. Repeat that for the throttle body. Reconnect each of these hoses from the valve cover to the back of your intake.Emptying your catch can is fairly simple. You can unbolt it from here or you can just grab the bottom of the can and unscrew it and empty it from here. Once it's empty, you just thread the bottom back on.All right. That's gonna do it for the review and install of our catch can. Remember, for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.

Maintain an Optimally Running Engine. Keep your Silverado’s engine running optimally with the JLT V3.0 Driver Side Satin Oil Separator. This oil separator is designed to trap and collect the vaporized oil that is inadvertently vented back into your intake by your truck’s positive crankcase ventilator (PCV) valving system. This oil separator prevents the build-up of engine sludge, which can dilute your gasoline, lowering its octane rating, ultimately affecting engine performance.
Unique Design. The JLT V3.0 Driver Side Black Oil Separator features a unique filtration system consisting of a fine stainless steel mesh and an aluminum honeycomb filter. The stainless steel mesh traps oil vapors and releases them once oil gets too heavy. The oil then proceeds to the honeycomb aluminum filter where it further condenses until it settles to the bottom of the catch can. The oil separator’s catch can comes with a 3-ounce capacity, requiring emptying every 3,000 miles or so.
Solid Aluminum Build Quality. The JLT V3.0 Driver Side Satin Oil Separator is crafted from solid billet aluminum, wherein it’s CNC-milled, resulting in a strong 1-piece component. This oil separator includes an O-ring to prevent leaks, while a knurled base makes opening the can easier, even when surfaces are oily. Finally, this oil separator is finished in natural satin for a sleek look.
Simple, No-Mod Installation. The JLT V3.0 Driver Side Satin Oil Separator installs directly on preexisting locations in your Silverado. This separator uses hoses that have a push-lock system that secures without the need for clamps. Standard hand tools are all you need for installation, and no modifications are required.
