Ive read that doing this changes pressure within the engine. Is this BS or is it true?
Id like to delete/gut the CCV on my 16 as a last piece of deleting.
This would stop all the oil mist from running back thru the engine.
Would like to confirm that its a none issue to let it run to atmosphere. I suspect it should be ok to do. Yes?

Reading about a sensor thats involved reading pressure and it trips check engine light.

so I'm thinking it's oil and we drive oil burners , any reasons to do this .... can't imagine that in an oil burner this would make much difference unlike the other devises that clog and foul intakes .... but that's just thinking out loud with no first hand knowledge as I have never had a smog'd diesel

Oil mist comes out of the CCV under the cover on top of the engine and goes thru a hose into the turbo pushing it all thru the intercooler, intake and engine. An oily film on those sensors and parts will or could leave an oily mess where we dont need it.

Gonna leave it alone

I don't remember a senor at all. I know the Volkswagen have a sensor that will cause a check engine light but I don't remember it for any of the Dodges. Maybe it was pre- 2012 I was messing with.

The real danger isn't so much the oil mist. The Danger is having the oil mist with the EGR functioning. It will plug the intake up with a charcoal bricket.

Amazing how that builds up and is in the engine.
Im at my ultrasound and I smell like a smoker, the techs love it!
