TDI oil 'catch can'

OK a quick question for the TDI guys that I have not had the time to research myself--- the little black oil catch can (AKA oil seperator/crankcase breather) could it eventually "fill" up? If so, what would happen? Shots of straight oil into the turbo intake? Should this be something to check on every one of these 25yr old import trucks when they come in the door?

It has a filter in it that needs to be cleaned. You also have the option of fitting one like the Alloy one Allisport does which does not need to be cleaned.

It should have a hose that drains to the sump.

They do, and one to the air-cleaner housing, but they also have a metal gauze filter in them which will clog over time and needs cleaning.

It should not clog unless you are using crappy oil or there is something wrong with the engine.

I know it's not very "green" but i unplugged the hose for the oil vapor that goes to the air duct and route it to the ground. I have the alloy breather, works very well. There is a long thread about this specific topic, search "mann pro-vent".
