[Filters & Oil] Strange filter thing on top of engine
#1
Question 
Hi all,

I have a strange filter thing on the top of my engine (1.6HDI mk2 berlingo), I was wondering if you could let me know what it is please?

Hopefully the picture is attached to this.

Thanks

Martin

Crankcase breather?

Edit. not big enough after seeing it next to your hand.

Looks like a bleed point or some sort of pressure release?

Wouldn't think it was a filter/inlet.

It is the vent to atmosphere from the vacuum solenoid that adjusts the boost on the variable vane turbo.

oh ok cheers for that. Just out of interest - does it need changing every now and again?

thanks

As said it is not a filter, so no need to change it.

There is a little bit of foam inside the end, it should not block up unless your engine pukes a bit of oil from elsewhere as not a lot passes through it. If it does block it can cause the turbo to over boost and go into limp home mode.
