Thanks for spending all the time yesterday after the OTR and helping me sort it all out.

Now, let's start the other monster 4x4 project that we discussed!

Hi Allan,

If the Snorkel Assy and all the Clips were fitted properly then, the Only reason could be the Air-Filter Drum was not sealed properly.

Can you share with us the reason for the Air-Filter getting choked, prematurely.

Regards,

Arka

Hi Tejas,

You are very Lucky, A few guys at TPC2010, overlooked this and were in a lot of trouble.

Does you Air Filter have a Dust Indicator?

Regards,

Arka

arka sir,
explained by tejas in the earlier post
the power steering guy left it open

after fabricating the entire snorkel assembly, i had it checked for all leakage
we do a perfume test
spray perfume all over the snorkel, pipe and air filter drum and use the car for a long drive, come back and open the assemble and check the filter for any smell
this was done by me before she left the garage.

so basically tejas' other mechanic just forgot to close what he opened

Yes, that's how we realized.
See below the rubber pipe which was absent completely:

Hi Allan Sir,

That's quite an interesting test, in Chennai we just cover the Snorkel Dome with a Plastic bag, and tape it below the Dome and rev up the engine slightly, if the engine stalls & Dust Indicator goes RED(Full)then the snorkel is working fine.

If not tighten the clips and check each assy for leaks.

Also having the Air-Filter inlet in a lowered position is good, even if the filter has water, gravity will drain it out

Regards,

Arka

Dear Tejas - I am glad to know that your vehicle is working properly now. This once again proves that there is only one way to do a perfect job and that is the only correct way. If I remember correctly, we had discussed radiator cap when you had come and showed me your vehicle sometime back. Mechanics removing the radiator cap rubber for some silly reason has been happening for as long as I can remember and will continue to happen till the cows come home. We must insulate ourselves from such nonsense, otherwise the vehicle will not run properly. Of course, the degassing tank is a better solution and in your case you must implement it, considering that you take your vehicle into inhospitable terrain.

Further, I have always mentioned that if fed with correct quality and quantity of fuel, air, lubricant and coolant, the diesel engine will run forever. Now you have seen for yourself what happens if this need is not met. Please ensure that the air cleaner element is really "original". There are fakes floating in the market a dime a dozen. Be careful.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Tejas, all Scorpio CRDe engines have ECU, one engine very close to the CRDe version is the NEF TC used in Bolero pickups.

Now, I have some idea about your vicious plans.
