are there any pictures or guides on the net on removing/cleaning/installing the flame trap peices? I just noticed a leak (very small maybe 1/2 quart 2k miles) and I know I haven't ever cleaned this, nor likely did the college kid that owned it for 5years before me...

I might have to go to autozone and look at the haynes manual but I was hoping for something online due to cash restraints at the moment

Re: Flame Trap Maintenance directions? (gdill2)

When I got my Volvo, one of the first things I did was totally replace the entire system.

New gasket, oilbox, rubber, trap, housing, and hoses. Made a big difference in how the car ran...mostly because I had 3 huge vacuum leaks from old/detached hoses.

It makes things 10x easier if you remove the distrobutor cap and throttle body so you have better access to the trap.
