Subject: Discontinue use of Crankcase Ventilation modification kit 59 62 428

It has been determined that the installation of the Crankcase Ventilation modification kit, p/n 59 62 428 may, in some cases, cause an increase in oil consumption.

Installation of this kit is to be discontinued immediately. Any complaints of increased oil consumption on vehicles that have this kit installed should be addressed by returning the vehicle to the original crankcase ventilation configuration.
An updated kit will be released at a later date.


If you have any questions concerning this TSB, please contact the Technical Assistance Center at 1-8********.

Thank you for your attention.
