Diesel engine oil catch can.

Ok, I've got a 159 1.9JTDm(remapped for EGR delete, but DPF still present) and have noticed a small amount of what looks like blue smoke for about 1-2 seconds after start. I'm assuming that oil is somehow collecting in the inlet system when I turn off and when I start it gets drawn into the cyclinders causing the blue smoke on start.

Has anyone had the same and/or fitted an oil catch can to the breather system which feeds into the air inlet pipe???

yep got the same on my stilo.
I already have a catch tank on there and made no difference to the start up smoke , but id rather have it on there than not as its helping to keep turbo, intercooler and manifold cleaner.
youll find more on catch tanks in tuning lounge
