Defective Air Compressor
To determine if a defective air compressor is causing excessive crankcase pressure, perform the following:
- Perform a crankcase pressure test and record the test results;Refer to "2.1 Crankcase Pressure Test" .
- Disconnect the air discharge line from the air compressor; see Figure
"Air Line Attachments"
, refer to MBE 900 Service Manual
(6SE9007), special equipment chapter.

- Repeat step 1 and record the test results.
- Compare the results of test one with test two.
- If the engine crankcase pressure remained the same, check the turbocharger; refer to "8.3 Defective Turbocharger" .
- If the engine crankcase pressure decreased, repair or replace the air compressor; refer to MBE 900 Service Manual (6SE9007), special equipment chapter.
Test Engine with Repaired Air Compressor
Perform the following steps to determine if a repaired air compressor resolved the excessive crankcase pressure:
To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.
- Start and run the engine.
- Perform a crankcase pressure test;Refer to "2.1 Crankcase Pressure Test"
- If the engine crankcase pressure is within 0.62 kPa (2.5 in. H2 O), no further troubleshooting is required. Shut down the engine.
- If the engine crankcase pressure is not within 0.62 kPa (2.5 in. H2 O), shut down the engine. Check the turbocharger; refer to "8.3 Defective Turbocharger" .
