Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

I was wondering if the quality of the diesel fuel available make any difference, I am under the impression (please correct if wrong) that the european & Australian diesel fuel was of a higher quality, i.e makes less soot or something. I known Australia Diesel is now Sulphur free, we even have high performance diesel fuels available if you want to pay the extra 4 cents a litre, I have not heard of these of issue in Australia with the CRD's

Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

I finally found some time to install the ProVent 200 into my 2005 GC 3.0CRD.

Here are some pics of the setup I use. I had some coolant hoses laying around which, when treated with a heat gun, made a very tight fit on the ProVent. For my own piece of mind heavy duty zip ties finished the job.

Then I wanted to check the tranny fluid I realized I have no dipstick on the plug????

regards

Harald

Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

nice job! you may find those zip ties can't stand the heat. The DPF is right below your Provent, and the DPF puts off tremendous heat during a regen, something like 1300 degrees (internally). Some guys use screw clamps, I went with the Oeticker clamps cause they look a little cleaner.

I was told the tranny is a dealer serviceable item only, hence the lack of a dip stick........

the CRD equipped 300c owners in the UK use the Billet Tech style catch can because of limited underhood space. So it should work for the Jeep as well.

He suggested to bring it in, but of course, it should relatively dry as I cleaned it this weekend.
I'd love to know who in Calgary is doing this work. With 15,500 km's I'm still sitting on the fence on this mod but if you have a pro who you can vouch for I likely would have it installed.
My main concern is the reported incident of the filter assembly freezing up and plugging in cold climates due to condensation resulting in problems. In Calgary this is a very real possibility unless equiped with some form of heater etc.

The freeze-up happened to me last winter in Edmonton during a cold snap after a long run on the highway. So yeah I'd definitely keep that in mind if I were you. Personally I would go with the elephant hose mod and plug the hole in the intake.

Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

Interesting fourm. I am torn on what to do... I also live in Northern Alberta. What happens when these filter assemblies freeze up?

I would prefer not to do the elephant hose mod, but will if required.

My CRD has 75,000km on it.
