Mercedes Oil Drip Pan | PCV Replacement DIY

Replace this part or your air intake manifold will die. I’m not kidding! This part wears thin with a groove line that allows oil to slip past after which it ends up in the air intake manifold and causes damage if not rectified quickly.

    The PCV valve and its diaphragm is the culprit, not the internal part in metal rubbing against the soft plastic diaphragm. Replacing the PCV valve it enough.
    But thank you for the reminder of reverse thread.

    Thanks so much for this video!! Question should I buy the oil separator as well? Or will the oil drip pan and the pcv be ok? Installing a new manifold and just taking precautions so it doesn't occur again.. thanks bro

    Great video, as usual. After this is done, is there any way to do at least some cleanup of the oil/carbon buildup in the intake manifold and intake valves without having to remove the intake manifold? I see videos of people dropping water through carburetors on warm engines to cleanup carbon in the intake; is there a comparable method for cars with fuel injection and MAF sensors that is safe and effective?Thank you again for a great job.

    Thanks for the great videos ! Question, Other then oil in the breather hose, are there any signs or systems or performance issues that would tell us these parts have failed?
