What are the defects?

Over time the aluminium positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve may fracture, allowing the engine to draw an increased amount of engine oil. This may cause excessive exhaust smoke and possibly unexpected loss of engine power.

What are the hazards?

Excessive exhaust smoke or loss of engine power may result in an accident, or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted and asked to arrange an appointment for inspection and repair, free of charge.
