I've already found the best solution

If I am correct... the swirl motor is an environmental idea.... it causes the air in your intake manifold to swirl around when you are idling thus preventing a tiny bit of pollution.
Two years ago, due to an accident in a freak snowstorm, my Jeep Grand Cherokee was declared a total loss by an insurance adjuster and I was given full-value for the vehicle, without having to pay the $3,000.00 to $4,000.00 to properly fixed this issue. I gladly accepted the offer and was thrilled to wipe my hands of Chrysler products, forever.

This was my second go around with this pathetic company, for which I will take full responsibility, given my horrible first experience. I will also never forgive Daimler Benz, for abandoning me after luring me into another terrible Chrysler experience.

This should have been a safety recall. I hope everyone stays safe and does not suffer harm, but - if they don't - Chrysler deserves to be sued and made to bleed red.

For those on this board, I thank you for your advice when I asked for it. I also wish you the best of luck. Unfortunately, I think that you are going to need it, or be forced to pay outrageous sums to make your Chrysler vehicles safe.

I have a sinking feeling that I am overly thrilled with a relatively cheap replacement of a part that MAY have caused a much more costly replacement of the swirl motor!

I am due to receive the new tube with better seal on Dec 4th and will install it soon after.

Codes currently kicked: P0101 mass air flow sensor MAF & P0088 High fuel pressure

Engine goes into limp mode with ETC light under heavy deceleration or modest acceleration in temperatures under 65 F / 18 C.

Are the codes I'm getting only cause by the compromised original orange seal, or is my swirl motor already done in? How will I be able to tell?

Don't panic.... its all pretty basic if you do your reading. I bought my 07 in 08 while we were on a long trip pulling a trailer....my former Jeep broke down badly and we coasted into a Jeep dealer after a 17 mile wild ride coastingdown a mountain with no engine. The 07 is my 1st diesel and I knew nothing about it at the time.

Love it.

Radcrd Unplug the swirl motor and see if limp mode goes away. If it does then the swirl motor is defective. You will get a CEL until you replace it or Tune it via GDE / Custom Spooling or use the resistor trick.

gemiller What model racor/provents are people using and where did everyone get them? I'm ordering the updated intake tube next week and likely a oil catch system at the same time.

Thanks for the number, I'll call asap. This should be a recall!

Anyone know how to start a class action lawsuit?

Why did you call yourself "support" and only have 1 post?

The number is for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA. If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.

That is "safety" issues, not crappy design issues.

whatever works for you I suppose.
I agree that the idea of dumping used motor oil down the intake of any engine cant do it any good. Then dain it on an electric motor, or throw it through an intake that has swril valves and expect it not to gum up either is not a design I would expect from the Germans.

And how exactly is it that burning old motor oil in the combustion chamber is better for the enviornment then dumping it down the exhaust?

Since there is a lot of moisture and condensation coming from the ccv, the heater will help melt it before the engine creates too much presure and blows oil though the dipstick. In theory.

Also explained once that it does that as well as keeping ice chucks from going into the turbo.
