Sorry, I couldn't get the pictures to load on my phone. That oil in the catch can looks like there is water in it. Check the dipstick, if it looks the same, then you have water in your oil.

What you see is a mixture of what is evacuated form your crankcase (another reason to NEVER defeat or delete the functions of your PCV system or this remains for the most part in your crankcase contaminating your engine oil, NEVER vent /defeat/delete these critical functions like some systems do) of oil, water, un-burnt fuel, and abrasive soot/carbon/ash particles.


When the outside air temps are below the 70's you will see more of the water and fuel, and below 45*F it will increase dramatically (as long as you have an effective catchcan, most ineffective ones only trap some oil mainly). seems normal from what i have read today

That's why I asked you what's your dipstick look like. What's the dipstick look like?

I think the catch can looks normal.

If the coolant goes down and the oil goes up you've got a real problem.
