At the last service, the oil separator was replaced and the rest of the system checked. While I'm not particularly happy that the various hoses were not replaced as well, they seem to be relatively clean. For the last bit of crud, which particularly seems to be at the air intake connection, I'm considering whether a few good blasts of WD40 down those particular tubes would be a good or a bad idea. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The goal is getting rid of the last crud without having to take off the exhaust manifold (which would beyond my current level of expertise). <p>Just starting out on doing a bit of my own maintenance now that the car is about to hit the 300.000 km mark, dealer service is getting worse (the mechanic is still extremely good, but the two guys behind the counter are getting more and more annoying). Any and all advice welcome <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: PCV maintenance question (Tuba)

In case anyone else gets the idea and does a search: I tried the WD40 blasting, and it doesn't do much.

I'm not sure how happy your engine will be with WD-40 in it's vital fluids.<br>You might want to change your oil.

Re: PCV maintenance question (BEJinFbk)

I changed the oil the day after the WD40, but as none of the WD40 actually got anywhere near the oil I doubt that much would have come of it either way.
