Re: Catch Can

I'm pretty sure the billett tech catch can couldn't handle the amount of blowby the CRDs produce. Those work better for Hemis and normally asperated gas engines. My CRD produced so much blowby that a...

Re: is the 2008 crd DIESEL cherokee any good

There are 2 threads currently going on in the WK section of jeepforum regarding this exact topic. One is titled "CRD vs. Hemi" and the other is something like "WK CRDs-How are they?" You'll get more...

Re: Biggest oil leak EVER!

x2. Not sure if I'm sold on your dealer's diagnosis. I'm a bit skeptical that blowby leaking from the air intake connection to the turbo inlet could have caused an oil puddle on the ground like you...

Re: Cold air intakes

If you do attempt a do-it-yourself CAI, make sure you have the ability to make a protective heat shield to protect the cone. Simply putting a cone filter on the end of the intake will end up just...

Re: Cold air intakes

Doesn't exist. Been looking for over a year. Kind of surprising since these are pretty common overseas.

Re: No power over 2000rpm

Just do searches for swirl motor, swirl system, crank case vent, CCV filter, CCV Mod, elephant hose mod, Provent, Racor, oil catch can, and you'll find all the info you need. This is a very common...

Re: Considering "elephant hose mod"

I was hoping that once I finally stopped adding to it, what had accumulated would eventually be recirculated and burned off.

No the breather hose gets in the way. I'll keep you posted on how this goes. Plan to check the intake in a week or so. I assume there's some oil still in the system that needs to run thru and be...

Re: CRD Oil Level Checking ??s

Mine's a 2008 but August 2007 production date. Wish my owner's manual stated that. Racor CCV4500-08 is the model I got. Most folks think the 4500 is overkill and that the 3500 is big enough. It is...

Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

That's what I've kind of figured out. As long as it can handle the amount of air volume passing thru, I don't think it really matters if it is a diesel specific air/oil separating system or one...

Re: Post your Provent/Racor setups

Great pics. Looks like a fair amount of oil though. A CCV filter system would really clean that up. The center and right pictures look like the area beneath the turbo intake is pretty varnished with...

No. The tolerances between the pipes that fit into each other were too big. No matter how hard I would crank down the clamps they wouldn't fully seal the pipes together and hold them rigid. Had to...
