i went to my local part store and they promise me my truck has nothing on it called a cdr. Which i know it does. How do i go about getting one? Will it have any effect on my engine besides my oil consumption?
You can try removing it, and letting soak in gasoline for a few hours, taking it out and shaking it every 20 min or so during those hours, to clean it up. But it wouldn't be a bad idea to get a new one.
I think the CDR is a Ford or IH dealer part only.
But yes a bad, or dirty CDR will cause oil consumption.

Its pretty much a dealer only part these days, and not as cheap as it should be
1988 F250, 7.3L IDI, regular cab, long bed, 5spd ZF
Mods: ATS turbo, 3.5 inch exhaust, superduty springs front and rear, 4 gauge A-pillar pod: boost, pyro, coolant and 4th spot is switches; was 2wd, now 4wd with Dana 60 front axle
next projects: fix/complete the 3.5 inch exhaust (tailpipe exits waaaaaay to low, and needs to be extended out from under the bed) swap to a rust free cab
yeah.so many of us would faint if we had to maintain a powerstroke.
did ya see the first link though,it's 50 there.much better,but still does seem silly high for such a basic device.
i know you can wash 'em out,but your not supposed to used compressed air,and if you see black chunks coming out while washing,that's when you know you need to replace it i guess.still haven't bothered to wash mine yet so i dunno.
