Volvo Crankcase Ventilation Separator-replace or rebuild?

Recommended Posts

My Crankcase Ventilation Separator is leaking out the sides. 664k on the meter. Not sure it has ever been serviced. It spins up. No bad sounds like bad bearings.

Crankcase and the two internal gaskets are around $100. The entire new unit is around $500. Big difference.

Rebuild it with new gaskets and clean the inside?

Buy an new one and call it good?

How long can it take?  Run to get parts v. run for new.....a wash.  R/R.....wash.  $400 difference for perhaps two hours labor, pretty good wages for an olde retired pharte......speaking of me, not you.

I'm old...and a pharte.

So I'm guessing your are a vote for rebuild.

Just not sure what the serviceable life span of these units are.

Infinitely serviceable...at least until individual parts are no longer available.
