I'll go check my wife's car, I'm pretty certain that set-up is the same as yours.
Funny how one figures out that the factory tightened those bolts with the engine/trans out of the car. Same goes for any/all 1.8T downpipe to exhaust connections....as there's not even room to tighten the damn engine block-to-bellhousing bolts.
Cool. as said, I'll take some pictures with parts removed so it's easier to see what's going on.Thanks Andreas. There's no rush.
Next will be the intake manifold, fuel rack, hence take your time.
I appreciate your help.:thumbup:
I'm glad to hear you got it going. :beer:Hey Andreas.
I finished the car last Friday and took for a spin. In about 25 miles it spit the camshaft rear oil cap, bank 2. Last night while coming across PZs thread on changing the O-rings on the coolant pipes, I saw the photo above (is his car, or one he worked on at the time; it isn't mine) and the proverbial light bulb popped in my head.
I installed the brand new PCV valve wrongfully! That was the purpose of the thread in the first place, to get the PCV routing properly installed. The new valve came w/an extra hose and screwed up my mind. I had the routing ok, just installed the valve "upside-down" so-to-speak.
I'm good now, all is ok on the PCV front
Thanks for your help anyway!
