Hey at least its not like the PCV valve on the recent subarus....it can have a part separate that drops down into the engine and destroys it. Big recall.

Dam. Good to hear yours was no cost. I assume you have an extended warranty on your van?

You have just confirmed for me that Mercedes-Benz has not fixed this issue since it began. This is going to be an expensive repair down the road for me!

Just got this error code P052E on my 2016 with 45k miles. It came on, then off, now back on. I'm the second owner and don't have the ELW. From what I can see on this forum and others is that there are three potential solutions. 1) Replace the PCV valve $$$. 2) Lower the oil level and try a lower viscosity oil $. 3) Have Mercedes reprogram the pressure sensor to the correct settings $. I'm just trying to get a sense of what route everyone is taking if they don't have a warranty.

If someone has their old canister purge/PCV valve hose assembly left over from their repair, I am interested in taking that off your hands. Thank you!

So mine goes in tomorrow for the replacement. 50% good will, that is more then acceptable to me.

I will try to get the parts, but we are dropping it after hours and they will probably be delivering it home when complete.

I had to have my Crankcase Ventilation Purge Valve replaced. I was billed for 12 hours of labor. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?
I just had the engine check light test dun. finally it stayed on once i got to the shop. I believe these are what used to be called a pcv valve which used to pop right out of the valve cover on top of the engine. They quoted me 2348.74 with 7% sales tax. My van has 55,000 miles on it. Maybe it's time for a new engine. I did accidently get an extended warranty for 3500 bucks. I haven't heard back from the dealer yet. I replaced the starter myself for a few hours of work and about 300 bucks for a bosch starter. I put the brakes on myself with help of a mechanic with R1 concepts parts for about 500-550 instead of 1200-2000. I think all cars cost this much now not just foreign. I sure hope the warranty covers it. I'd hate to have to buy a 150 ish part and spend half a day or so R&R. by the way the brakes took only 2 hours in a driveway. imagine how fast they would be in a shop on a lift.

So i just looked up the part crankcase vent valve on parts geek and they want 1005 bucks for a little plastic tube with a palladium/rhodium valve that is run by a quantum computer. (warning sarcasm may seem closer than it appears)

Here’s the part they will replace. Sounds like you could save a lot of money since you’re mechanically handy.

Hey, sweet. Thanks. Thats a little cheaper than parts geek . I'll see what the Service dept and the Ext warranty folks say. Still. I think all that should have to be replaced is the little vent filter. That's why the actuator is not working. Just like the old style stuff, it gets clogged with oil build up and stops letting the hot engine(crank case) gases through. 789.99 is better than the MB price of 1190. I hope this is helping people out that were smarter than me and didn't pay 3500 bks for an ext warranty. Course if they pay for it it will start to look a lot less expensive. I'll bet a really industrious fella or gall could pull it out and clean it out with a can or "brake clean". I'll see if they'll let me keep my old assembly 'if it's not considered a core, and try cleaning it out. I'll bet it would be worth 250-300 to somebody with out a warranty. If that works. (home with a sore body and back today. so plenty of time to bitch and moan)

Holy feces batman. I scrolled down on that site link and the very parts that I am talking about (breather, hose assembly, oil separator)are sold separately for about 100-150 bucks total. not including shipping and tax. Man. I may have had to much coffee. Hoorah for the masses. I guess I'll have to look in the engine compartment when i slow down a bit and see how easy it is to get to those and R&R.

Its interesting that you're getting it replaced under warranty. Apparently other dealerships say that part isn't cover. Its always good to be lucky!

It's something different if it's a 1.5 hours labor. It's a all day job...probably 2 days for me. You have to remove the left motor mount...it's a big job.

Ok
Dropped it off today. It is at least 1 day if not two. The gal i made the appt. with told me 1.5 hours. She musta been thinking about something else. Emissions ,I believe, is part of the drive train so I guess that's why they cover it under my EXT warranty. 75000 mile drive train and 100000 body rust warranty

Yep. From my experience, the service advisors know nothing about cars. It's almost like they don't want to learn...or management test applicants and only hire the ones that score the lowest on mechanical knowledge.
