Default NW Oil Catch Can

I was going to fit an oil catch can to my 2012 pajero until I took it into John Hughes for its 7500 KM service.
I was told that the problem with the exhaust manifold getting gummed up was fixed from 2011 onwards is this true or not.
Anyhow $400 dollars for basically an oil change not happy

The is no 7500km service for the 2012 Pajero, standard servicing is at 15000km intervals? Are you doing additional servicing, or did you leave a Zero off and it should be 75000km?

Not sure on the oil catch can requirement, but plenty on here have them.

Was 7500 km service as they had marked it a being needed at the 1500 km service was not happy as I was told fixed price serviceing did not come into effect until the 15000 km service.
Yes and I did notice that the book said no need to service until 15000 km

Did they give you a reason why it was required? First I have heard of them requiring an additional service. You can have a look at the capped price service schedule here. Just need to look at Pre or Post October 1st 2012, slightly dearer if purchased after 01/10/2012. Not that this will help you in this case, but you will know for future servicing.

There is no 7500 km service,i was told to bring mine in for a 7500 check which i did and is free.
All they do is check for leaks and other general things,a full service was done at 15,000 and is charged at the capped price.

Services are 15000km or 12 months, which ever comes first. If it is a 2012 model it would be over a year old and due for a service even if it has done less than 15000km. Not sure how this works with capped price servicing.

Fixed price comes into effect at 12mth OR 15k, whichever is sooner.

Something sounds fishy. If yours is a late 2012 then I guess you've taken it in a little late for a 12mth service with only 7500 on the odo.

Fixed price doesn't apply for interval servicing, but it does apply for 15k/12 and multiples of those. I think our model only had about 8000kms on the odo when it went for its 12mth service, and that was fixed price.

catch can certainly helps a lot with oil going in the manifold mine is clean as new having said this only after I installed actual PROVENT not ''provent style'' they are crap quality, in my experience after 2k oil was coming out from the top of the can. Actual provent has now more than 10k and no signs of leaking with same drain hose connected.

I also have the 2012 pajero and I was told by the Geraldton wa Mitsi dealer that there was a modified done to the location of the sensors in the inlet manifold so it doesn't get gummed up as quickly as the older models but they still have the oil vapor that comes from the rocker cover and directed back into the air intake back into the inlet manifold where the oil vapor will cook onto the walls of the manifold so you need to look at putting an oil catch can between rocker cover and air intake.
