I think I understand the Swirl Motor issue now. Is this correct? It's actually the leak at the mouth of the inlet to the turbo that is the root of the problem. It is the accumulation and POOLING of the leaked oil sitting on the OUTSIDE of the top of the engine between the cylinder banks that's the REAL issue. Does it then find it's way to the Swirl Motor as it runs around the outside of the engine? The oil vapor passing thru the CCV, thru the turbo and into the intake and intercooler (although not good either), is NOT the actual cause of the Swirl Motor failure. As long as I keep oil from leaking onto the top of the engine, I should be able to avoid this failure. And this is a design flaw inherent to the WK and other Chrysler applications and less of an issue on the Benzes with this same engine. Is there a picture of the swirl motor? I assume it's certainly not visible from the outside. Thanks for any dumbed-down explanations you can give. A bit of a novice wrench turner here.
