    Sorry to say the Lowe's paint fix is not holding up. Already cracking again, after only light usage by a light person. I suppose that paint is just not flexible enough. Probably requires a paint...

    So classic, they're even appreciating (i.e., along with everything else [except currency] these days). Just for a hoot, go to Edmunds.com and get an appraisal to see what CarMax will offer you for...

    Thanks again.

    Not able to check whether pressurized air will actually flow through the PTC into the intake tube, as I still haven't been able to get the tube off the air filter housing. Hopefully...

    Following up, I used a variable speed vacuum cleaner's nozzle blowing into the oil filler (and sealed to it with duct tape) and got air flowing out of the long line to the PTC even at the lowest...

    Thanks again. I woke up this morning with the thought that the long hose to the air tube would do just as you say, limit the amount of vacuum supplied by the manifold at idle. So your post must have...

    Thanks. I really appreciate your input. But if this diagram from Matthews Volvo is accurate (maybe it's not?), then isn't all of the vacuum at idle being supplied by the short section of hose from...

    Thanks. It would probably help if I had bigger hands to get more leverage on the end of the hose. For a mechanic my hand size is fine for getting in tight spaces, but not so good for grip needed to...

    I was able to get my bore scope into the neck of the PTC nipple without too much disassembly. (Good thing because I couldn't even get the intake tube to release from the filter box cover. If there is...

    No, no problem with the car and no recent work done. I do the glove test at every oil change and there is good vacuum at the oil filler cap at idle. The only reasons I had them check it is the...

    No, I didn't actually speak with the tech, only the service advisor, and no mention as to actual vacuum reading or whether at idle or under boost, only this note: "BREATHER SUCKING TO (sic) MUCH...

    Too *Much* Crankcase (PCV) Vacuum?

    While the dealer was performing the air bag recall service I asked that they check the PCV breather vacuum.

    The tech reported that vacuum was too high and suggested that may be due to plugged...

    This older thread may help on color.

    I recall reading somewhere else here that taupe and oak are the same, jrl's response on that thread indicates it may be more complicated.

    You might try Gorilla Epoxy. It's fairly viscous. While it will run a little, it cures really quickly so I'd expect no problem for that job.
