REASON FOR THIS EMISSION RECALL

In some of the affected vehicles, the engine crankcase oil separator filter may have a bypass valve with the incorrect spring rate.  An incorrect spring rate may allow the bypass valve to open before the service interval is reached.  The valve opening early results in oil carryover into the turbocharger, potentially increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
