As far as I know, the parts are not expensive, and it's not difficult (as in complex), but the location of the breather valve makes it a real bugger! I don't know specifically the procedure, but it sits completely on the back of the engine block and is very hard to access. Apparently, it's a 15 minute job to replace when the engine is out of the car, and 4 hours when it's in the car...for the home mechanic I'm sure we can add to that time...ouch!

For the repair manual, find the CD-Rom (TIS) at the Central Lettershop, info has been posted a number of times on the board, I'm sorry I don't have it.

Not sure how helpful that was, but...


1. How dificult?
2. How much are the parts?
3. Where can I get a shop manual?
4. What else should I replace while it's apart?
