Oil fumes in the cabin - '08 CRD
Hi y’all, I’m new to the jeep CRD platform just picked up a 2008. I have had diesels for the past 15 years(VW). Noticed that oil vapor odor when engine is warm and idling for a long period of time so I’m going to try this simple mod to see how it works. First I removed the passenger w/wiper, then I removed the plastic air intake on the cowl. I flip it upside down and used duct tape block off the forward facing slots. I also blocked off a small section of the upper, inboard slots. The tape is on the inside of the cowl and can be seen in the picture as the tan area. Going to give it a try for a few months and report back.

The grommet where the electrical cabling goes into the cab can come loose and when that happens about all you can do is stuff a rag in the hole. If somebody has modified the crank venting that is likely the problem. Lastly, I think I bent the rear hatch in my rig a couple weeks ago. They are pretty flimsy where the flipper glass is located...I now have exhaust fumes coming into the vehicle after trying to force the hatch down onto a large box.
