I have a 2014 5085E throwing code ECU 000101.16 meaning Crankcase pressure high. Check blow-by filter

I can find no reference to a blow-by filter in the manual, or on the web.

Can anyone help?

Where is it?

How hard to change?

I just had the 500 hour maintenance done. Any possible connection to that. Odd coincidence.

Thanks

It should be a canister on the right side of the engine right about cylinder head height. It’s a cartridge type filter. If you follow the crankcase vent hose from the valve cover it will lead you right to it. There’s a ring at the top that unthreads and the cover will come off. It can be difficult to remove. Generally I see this code on our industrial engines when they are operating at low load during cold weather. You will find the filter covered in white gunk. This code will derate the engine and possibly limit rpm depending on the severity of the code. I would add pictures but I’m hunting today instead of working

Interesting.

X758 - Where did you find it being a 1500 hour service item? My manual, my dealer, and now JD customer service do not identify the blow by filter as a maintenance item.

I found this out by first talking to the dealer, and then JD customer service.

It should be a maintenance item.

I replaced the filter this morning, or actually the dealer sent a tech to my house. Big money.

Don't laugh, but I am asking JD to pay the service call. My dealer does my maintenance, and if this had been part of an earlier scheduled maintenance it would have been changed before it went bad.

I now have an open case with Deere. Waiting on a call back from them.

I believe if you look in your manual under "Service As Needed" the last line item under that heading should say replace OCV filter. OCV meaning open crankcase ventilation. The later manuals are now showing 1500 hour service interval. In my experience, depending on operation, 1500 hour is too long to keep from tripping the error code.

Sorry for the delay in response. Been busy lately. I was told the 1500 hr service interval at a tech training I was at a few years ago. Our engines run in a little different situation than a tractor. We use them to drive pumps usually at a constant speed and load. That filter usually doesn’t create a problem until it gets cold and the engine runs at a light load. I’ve seen units that have come from other offices with several thousand hours on them and the filter has never been changed. I carry a spare filter in my service truck along with hose to bypass the filter if the problem reoccurs. Our pumps do a lot of sewer bypass work and things get messy if a engine shuts down for something as stupid as a plugged crankcase filter.

Jeffory was wondering how you made out with this?
The dealer came out and changed the blow by filter. Been running, putting out hay for a month or so. No recurrence.

I spent quite a bit of time with JD customer service. Climbed two rungs up the ladder with them. That was as far as they would let me go.

I kept arguing with them, until I had the JD guy good and pissed off, saying this should be in the manual. He argued it should not. Reading some of the post it sounds like it IS in there now,

JD is hard to deal with. I know some of you guys have spent way more than me. Maybe you have better luck with them

Maybe Bloomberg is right, us farmer aren't very smart.
