    I have big trouble with PCV OCC:
    at night it was cold -20C/-4F, in the morning I went on highway about 600 km, during the trip the temperature was a little warmer than the night, at the end of travel smelled strongly of burnt oil, and in the end lighted oil can, about half of the oil squeezed out through the plastic cover over the engine, the all engine has been oil, I add near 3 liters oil.
    At the service washed engine bottom, disconnect the OCC, changed the oil.
    Now all OK.

    PS/we have cold in winter -30C/-22F to -40C/-40F sometime.

    Anyone with catch cans in cold climate?

    The very reason I sold mine without ever installing. That's 7 months of the year here, pointless for use in Canada IMO.

    We put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator and put a nonflammable blanket on engine.
    I made a sound insulation on all sides, it was quieter and warmer.

    Ohh man now this is something that I got to watch...thanks for the heads up.
    Also Why is it that the PCV side always has more oil than that of the one where the battery is at. Every time I drain them out one is like full (PCV Side) the other has maybe a drip of oil (bat Side OCC) Makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong.

    Normal. Some members have only installed the one side due to this.

    I assure you, you're not doing anything wrong. Think of it this way.

    The catch can on the "PCV side" is where those heinous oily fumes that accumulate in the valve cover area are drawn into the intake manifold when vacuum is present (as apposed to boost, which is why there is a check valve in this line) and on into the cylinders to be burned.

    The catch can "where the battery is at" is on the Breather side of the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system where fresh air is drawn into the crank case from the intake after the air filter and prior to the compressor side of the turbo. By it's nature and function it sees far less oily vapor during normal engine operation than the other side.

    Here's a diagram from Saikou Michi Co. USA

    This is what comes out of my battery side OCC. It's more than usual since we've had more snow/moisture lately. I last emptied the can probably 2-2.5 weeks ago.

    ^^^

    Just drained both of mine today and I had about 1.5 times that in my intake OCC and only 1/4 that in the PCV side. However, 3-4 weeks ago when I drained them it was the other way around.

    Haven't had any issues with it freezing in the catch cans yet despite having a couple days near -5F to -10F.
