Fault Code P2187
Posted 26 August 2012 - 12:04 PM
I have a strange sound in my s-max when the engine is running at 800rpm and the car i standing still. The sound is more difficult to hear at higher rpm.
The sound disappears when I remove the oil filler cap from the engine.
I suspect the crankcase ventilation.
The engine lamp also shows up now and I can read fault code P2187.
Someone recognize the problem?
I have looked all over for a fault code list but I can not find anyone, anyone who knows where to find one?
Or at least what P2187 indicate?

Other topics point to oil filter housing failing and needing to be replaced if sound goes away when pulling dipstick.this refers to the 2.5 turbo st engine which sounds like the same engine you have.this also points to a lot more damage if it's not sorted.
But at least you have something to go on now.

I will first try to clean the crankcase ventilation.
If anyone have a fault-code list I would appreciate if you could post them to me.

Unfortunately a link to that site can't be posted here.

Costs approx £400 to sort at a dealer.

The sound goes away when pulling oil dipstick so it seems that I have to replace the oil filter housing.
Has anyone done that, is it difficult? How many hours does it take to do the job for an experienced car mechanic?
How much oil do I have to refill?
Thanks for all advise.

It took the Ford dealer on the Isle of Skye 4-5 hours to change it.
