It is placed inline between the PCV and where it dumps back into the intake. It condenses and collects oil mist before it dumps back into the intake. It helps reduce oil coking on intake valves and oil pooling in the intake, specially on DI and boosted motors.

Very interested in this. I have thought about it, but not actually looked into it yet.

I have one on my 16 Silverado and it collects about an ounce or so of oil every 2 oil changes. Some people get more some get less but the northern teir states with cold winters tend to pick up a lot of moisture as well during the winter.

We have a 2013 Terrain, 2.4 L, at 80K started dripping oil in driveway. I go on the internet, the motor has lots of problems, main one is PCV hose freezing up, building up crank case pressure, ultimately blowing out the rear main seal! I call my local GMC Dealer, sells only GMC since 1954, they don't have a clue, I'm the 1st to call with this problem? I next go to a large GM Dealer, Chevy, Caddy, & GMC! They tell me, our car is not in the "recall", it will cost $3100.- to do new pistons, rings, timing chain, & water pump! I take it to a local Chevy Dealer, they said my Transfer Case is leaking, $800.- for a $3.00 gasket? I go back to a 2.4L Ecotec Forum, a regular Joe says to remove the plugs, pour 4 oz. of Gumout with PEA, into each cylinder, let it sit over night, to dissolve the carbon on the rings! Turn over engine, forcing any Gumout out of cylinders, to prevent Hydro-Lock, & bending a rod? I also had him drill a 1/16 hole into the PCV, like the GM repair says to do? Next we installed new spark plugs, seeing they were out! I also had my Tech put on a K&N Cold Air System, (10 hp gain) & lastly He installed a Air & Oil Separator (catch can! All this for less than a $1000.-! It's been 3 months & I haven't had to add a drop of oil, in fact the A/O Separator has NO oil in it, seems the PEA in the Gumout, & the 1/16 drill hole in PCV, did the trick Car runs fine! At 5K, when new, I had every fluid switched to AMSOIL, auto trans purged, etc.! At 105K miles, I will do the Gumout again, & change all the AMSOIL, with New AMSOIL! Note; There are some nice 2.4 crate motors out there, I don't mean GM crate motors? This procedure worked for me! Good luck, to anybody with a 2.4, you're going to need it! Sincerely Bostoin Jim

There are recent threads and posts regarding this. Use Scroll down on the main forum page and you will see a few related threads. So many that it is now confusing rather than clarifying much.

Plus, in no time, I am sure some one will come along and offer sage advice (more or less) on how and where to install an oil separator.

If you find something, please post the link. I too have searched this forum, as well as doing an online search. There are some hits there for installing on a recent Camaro or ATS with the LTG 2.0 Turbo, but nothing for an Equinox/Terrain. The websites for the vendors that I looked at also do not list Equinox/Terrain.

2013 ATS Premium, 3.6 V6, White Diamond Tri-coat/Brownstone
1967 Camaro, 327, Butternut Yellow/Black
