Anyone ever used the BD Diesel Crank Case Filter Kit? Having Trouble, please HELP!!!!

Has anyone out there ever installed or know of anyone who uses the BD Diesel Crank Case Filter kit? I have a 2006 6.0L F250 and Ive had the BD Crank Case Filter kit installed for about 6 weeks now. It seems to work great; its removing a lot of crank case vapor oil from my system. When i emptied the catch can, quite a bit of vapor oil drained out.

Now here's my problem....about 2 days ago I started to notice some whitish smoke coming out of the tailpipe when I accelerate, or when I'm idling. Also, I'm getting some pressure escaping through the oil dipstick shaft. Actually, some oil also squirts out when I get on the throttle. When I pulled the dip stick out with the truck running, it really started squirting out more, and I can see vapor escaping through the hole; basically backpressure escaping. This has never happened before!! I've been reading around and read that if too much crankcase pressure builds up, then these same symptoms can occur. Someone said that if the crankcase vent gets blocked this can also happen. I've checked all the tubes with this kit and nothing is kinked or blocked. When I remove the filter housing top, crankcase vapor escapes so I know its circulating properly. I can also drain vapor oil out of the catch can so I know that parts working properly and it is in fact filtering vapor oil. I wonder if the filter is causing too much restriction and the crankcase vent port isn't venting properly and causing a backup of crankcase pressure.

It's kind of suspect to me that 6 weeks after I install this kit (that's supposed to filter crank case vapors) I'm, experiencing the same symptoms of a blocked or restricted CCV, or other excess crank case pressure.

So, what do you guys think? Anyone heard of this before?

PLEASE help me with this so I don't end up causing some REAL damage to my truck.

Thankyou!!

Matt.

I see you've posted up on BD's site so I think you are on the right track in that regard.

I encourage you to get a sample of engine oil analyzed as well to check for coolant or fuel.

For sure something is off with your ccv setup. Blowing oil out of the dipstick tube is BAD. You are building way too much crank case pressure. (you probably realize that) That will blow the main seals out if not corrected. As far as having no compression across the board that is not good at all and pretty unusual. What is the dealer attributing that to? There seems to be more going on than just a blown head gasket.

Not just kinked but no loops or sags. The line needs a continuous drop to the catch can. Any sag will collect oil and act as a blockage.


But that's not the whole story Matt. You really need to lay out all the facts when looking for help.
