Engine sensor

Hi I have a Fiat Ducato 2.8 TD W reg
Can anybody tell me what the sensor on the engine breather does
I had a wiring burn out on the wires to the sensor. I've unpluged the sensor and the engine still runs
Help
Many thanks Keith

Welcome to the forum Keith.

I'm afraid the question is double Dutch to me but someone here will know, or be able to point you in the right direction.

What do you mean by “engine breather” ? Air intake, EGR exhaust gas recirculater, crankcase breather???

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if it’s in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

It is a heater element, to discourage emulsifying of condensation in breather pipe.
Leave it disconnected, not worth replacing.
