    Do as you wish mate, it's your car, I fit Provent's to every diesel I have ever had, from new, and all my intakes are bone dry, and most important my intake valve stems remain clean! This "oily mist" is the whole problem! If the membrane does indeed eventually fail, I'm still covered. Happy days.

    Hi Greg,
    Sorry I didn't get back to you. Been off line for a bit. As you recommended, I am going to installa Provent 200 or a maybe the Ryco one as it is nearby at Super Cheap with a universal install kit that I might be able to utilize some of the parts.

    I have read your threads from some years back and also Transporter's. I am not clear on what you settled to connect the hoses to the PCV hose ends at valve cover and turbo air inlet? To maintain the 45 degree angle join on the turbo air let, 90 degree join at the valve cover end, could cutting the PCV hose off to keep these joins be an option? I did see it mentioned at some point alternatively using copper junctions. Also based on usage over time what type of silicon or rubber pcv hose worked best?

    Cheers,

    Scott

    Hi mate, ideally you reuse the ends (connectors) or remove 1 connector only, so you void awkward angles to your new hose arrangement to provent kit. Ryco kit is good and for the cartridge maintenance.... I just wash in brake cleaner, dry and reuse. I've done that in my T5 for 140kkm despite I bought 2 spare cartridges. I've used silicon hose, it lasted 11 years and it was like new.

    Hi Transporter, thank you very much for clarifying. I will reuse those connectors. Might take a little bit to separate the pcv hose from them in hot water, but yes will sort out the awkward angles for the new hoses. Great tip for the filter too!
    Cheers, Scott

    Use the heat gun or hairdryer. Works very well.

    Good day all,
    At present, I have not purchased a catch can, as I am still chasing an oil leak and it now does appear a turbo inlet pipe seal was not the culprit. In fact on a positive note there is negligible pcv oil blow by residue either side of the turbo inlet pipe and outlet ( intercooler pipe). The pipe to the intercooler is almost bone dry.

    Post some weeks of driving after the engine was decreased is pointing to a leak higher up; and as best as I can view it is likely the rocker cover and less likely the tandem pump gasket.

    Any body done a major tear down recently to replace rocker cover and or gasket? Number of hours and approx cost would be useful. This is the version where the intake curls slightly over the rocker cover. There is enough oil dripping down front and more at the back to make for a very oily under tray and oil drips on the driveway.

    I think I am over it at present, and my local VW specialist is unable to tackle it due insufficient mechanics at present. So I am going to have track down another specialist ( Melb East).

    Regards,

    Scott

    pretty sure you need to remove intake manifold to get to the rocker cover, on a 2.5
    If you're mech inclined, here's how to do the manifold,

    Haven't done the rocker myself

    Hi Steve,
    Thank you. Yes unfortunately with VW's crazy design, the rocker cover cannot be removed without major front end surgery as described.

    Whilst I am mechanical...to a point, I am not prepared to take on large jobs like this anymore. Many thanks for the link.
