    I have over 21k on mine and have never had any smoking symptoms, however after putting in the Corsa I too have noticed smoke. I figure its the new system burning in ,I don't have but 25 in town miles. I will be taking it out for a Good "warm up" and be monitoring.

    I'm the original poster...

    And I just wanted to add that I don't Park on a hill or anything... And I get the blue smoke sitting on the flat.

    I will say that it only happens occasionally... But seems to be more pronounced after a long drive or spirited driving.

    For those who still have the problem after replacing the pan, flashing the ecm, and/or adding a catch can this might be a fix.

    My guess is for those who noticed it after there exhaust install... You probably noticed it because you spend more time staring at your pretty exhaust

    I had the OIL PAN TSB performed and I havent noticed any smoke on startup since. Ill recheck it soon since now I have the Corsa installed. Im thinking about adding a catch can. Who makes these for our Durango's?

    Many prefer the Billet catch can. They just announced an up to 40% discount sale on 11/25 if you can wait until then...

    Mine was very smelly when first installed. It has since stopped since I drove it for 4 hrs or so.
    They really use a lot of oil in the stamping and pressing of these pieces.

    Regarding the threshold of a lean bank MIL, I suppose any engine calibration has different limits. I have seen with ford, a lean MIL caused by an aftermarket PCV valve. The engine ran fine otherwise. I'd love to see the actual trim PID on an engine diagnosed with a cracked intake, leaking to atmosphere, and not set at least a one trip.
    I agree that stainless shaping requires a lot of lubricant, and the Corsa system being very oily out if the box. It needs a good run in the hills to "cure".

    Now that I think about it... I've always thought the cold idle was a bit hi... Be interesting to see if there is a difference after the intake is replaced.

    I'm also assuming the leak is into the intake from the pcv passage and not to atmosphere. Going to ask to have a look at the old intake once it's replaced... I'll try to take some pictures. Also going to ask if it's an updated intake...

    Catch cans will not stop the condition (don't believe the hype). Park on an incline overnight and watch the smoke roll. lol

    I installed a catch can for other reasons, but I can confirm that the catch can alone will not stop the smoke. Also, the TSB for the pan replacement will not stop the smoke either, it only reduces it.

    Yes, please take some shots, especially of the underside of the intake. I'd like to see especially where the oil goes from the fill. any leak downstream of the throttle plate is to the atmosphere. The crankcase is vented, usually through the intake, and the PCV allows vapors into the intake, negative side In a controlled state.
