· Engines with internal crankcase breather filter experience crankcase breather tube freezing issues in below freezing temperatures.

· Lubricating oil leak and high crankcase pressure fault codes are observed.

The crankcase breather filter and crankcase tube freezing could cause crankcase pressure to build, resulting in:
· Lubricating oil leaks at the turbocharger seal, valve cover gasket, and rocker housing gasket or front or rear crankshaft seals.
· Logging high crankcase pressure Fault Codes 555 and 556.

If these symptoms and fault codes are observed along with below freezing temperatures, check the breather filter and crankcase tube for freezing. Photographs are shown for reference. Condensation might be observed on the breather element.

If the breather filter and/or crankcase tube is found to be plugged by icing, install the cold weather upfit kit, Part Number 5314954. Reference Service Bulletin 4908173 for detailed installation instructions. This kit contains two heaters that will keep the filter and tube from freezing in below freezing temperatures. This upfit kit is not covered by warranty.
Also, cut the crankcase breather tube at a 45 degree angle as shown in the illustration below. For On Highway engines, make sure that the open side of the tube either faces rearward from the vehicle's forward direction or toward the engine and for Off Highway engines, the open side must be facing toward the engine.
