I did not choose that path because I did not want to make in sharp turns in the hose path. It certainly could go that route.

my 2008 with 50,000 miles puffs out a hefty amount of smoke here and there. I was told the sensor thing that is hooked up between the ccv and intake was actually a heating unit to burn or vaporize the oil that went through it. So that would mean any smoke that comes through is a result of the sensor or Could be a a partially clogged ccv spurting more oil out. I have a extensive background with diesel engines, with my maintenance and mobil 1 I seriously doubt it is a major blow by issue. Also if blow by was that bad, there would be issues of losing oil, fuel contaminating the oil and It is not showing. I have seen mercedes diesel engines log 350,000 with no trouble.

EHM Smoking

I have had my EHM since Sept of last year. It rarely smokes and occasionally emits a smell. I DO have some smoke under certain conditions. If it is a hot day and I just did something that stresses the engine, like zipping up a steep grade, then I get a some smoking when I stand still and go to idle.

I have not yet seen any convincing evidence regarding that funny device. Some say it is a heater, some say it is a temperature sensor. I've seen lots of opinion about it but no hard evidence such as a document, part number with a name attached to it, etc. I left mine in place, so maybe it still functions.

Go to Sprinter Source forum. NCV3 section (2007 & newer Sprinters). Dig around. You will find the same issues there. Leaks from the intake tube. Orange seal. Black seal. Swirl motor & valve failures. Misdiagnosed oil leaks. It's all there... There are plenty of high mileage OM642s. Multiple there claiming well beyond 300k. But not without these issues. The swirl system is the weak link with this engine. Hopefully I've addressed that issue before it arrives. Reduced EGR and no blowby recirculation.

i just finished the EHM. really straight forward, but for the few minutes the jeep was idling after i finished, it was smoking, but temp is around freezing so i'm not sure if it's condensation or what. hope it works out and along with the new seal (changed about 10k km ago) prevents or at least prolongs potential swirl motor issues.

Awesome

So, getting my "swirl Motor" done this coming week. (Wen't at 178k km).

I've looked, but can someone please direct me how to trick the computer to think the swirl is working (swirl delete). Pics, links, or what-ever.

Does the "new" hose with the black gasket fix the oil getting into the swirl motor problem?

Thanks for all your input.

Cheers.

Just finished the EHM. Thanks Chirpz for your step by step detailed instructions. Soon I will do the gde tune, but hopefully I won't have the swirl motor failure until then.

Hmmm..... I just noticed that I have been using the EHM since June 2011. I still have not seen a single drop of oil dripped on the driveway.

The device between CCV and intake is a small heater to prevent CCV gases from freeze-up issues. It is just a warming device and does not get very hot. Condensation can be a problem with an EHM if it is exposed to cold air. If the pipe were to get a blockage in very cold weather it could lead to a blown crank seal due to block pressurization.

Not overfilling the oil should minimize the blow-by.

So if I live in Minneapolis MN, winter here could be an issue for the EHM?

I incorporated the heater into my EHM. Is it necessary?

I would like to know more about that little "heater" in the CCV. I've never heard a convincing argument about it.

If it truly is a heater, does it function while the car is turned OFF and is just sitting there in the cold.

If that is not the case, WHEN does it function. If you crank your engine it is too late for it to do any good because you would be producing pressure against a blocked hose that has not had time to thaw.

You certainly don't need it once the engine is warmed up. Also, there is no time for it to do anything between the time you turn the key and the engine fires. Try to imagine an instant heater. Have you ever tried to melt an ice cube with a propane torch.... it melts fast but still takes time.

If it functions when the car is turned OFF, that would make sense....sort of like a block heater for the CCV hose. But it would protect only a short segment of the hose. If you have a long cold spell and don't use your car...does your battery drain down? How many watts does it draw?

I realize freezing is a problem....but I'm a CCV Heater skeptic. I don't know what the thing is....... but the heater idea makes no sense to me.

May be someone has a part number that also has an identifying label. Something like "MB4198583 - CCV Heater" (I made that up) That would be convincing.

I'm not trying to make trouble here.... Just expressing my my questions and doubts. I'd really like to know for sure.

I left mine in place when I did the EHM but I'm not convinced it is a heater.
