    I consoled myself in the fact that the oil they sent me was about 3 times as expensive on their site!
    I contacted them by email. It took them 12 days to respond by which point I'd got bored, ordered the correct stuff and had it delivered. It's quite naughty really. They are clearly doing it on purpose.

    I've used them before and never had a problem.

    They do use a very good 'chat service', which I've also used and they do respond quickly.

    Used them loads myself. I'm not bothered in the slightest. Always rapid posting (never pay for 48hrs or next day), it always seems to arrive far quicker than they say.

    Tried using that chat service at the time. I was 28th in the queue!!

    Wont put me off.

    It was good for the engine to have a flush anyway.

    I'm not put off them, mistakes happen. My order was about a year ago though, so nothing to do with any warehouse move

    That will cause the PCV to not function properly as the lack of vacuum will mean less oil vapour drawn to the oil trap.

    If you read the car with VIDA you'd almost certainly have a MAF code too.

    If I were you, I'd change out the PCV system properly, replacing the inlet manifold gasket, PCV cooling hose, banjo bolts and Thermostat housing aswell whilst your there.
    It will make a big difference to the cars driveability and noteably, the exhaust note too

    If blocked, the PCV will force oil past the VVT valves, CAM seals and Rear main seal. Also, up the dipstick tube and all over the engine after a spirited drive.

    Can you see all that crap around the PCT nipple next to #2? That's build up from a leaking PCT nipple most likely cos it's blocked.

    Looks like you've got a few days work ahead of you cleaning that lot up and replacing bits.

    When you remove the MAF > Turbo pipe, check the turbo end of the hose to see if it's cracked, split or brittle. If it is, renew it!! They leak and cause boost leaks. They only retail for about 70 from Volvo, so don't buy a second hand part. Use a new genuine clamp too as they are stainless steal and you don't want to have to remove it again as they're a bit of a pig to get too. Don't reuse the old clamp.

    Blimey Lee, take a breath...

    Thats not a picture of my car, its one I found whilst trying to figure out what the pipe was supposed to be connected to. I even had the 850 Rs bonnet open but it doesn't have a pipe 2, its just blanked at the air intake next to the PCT nipple.

    I'll get a picture of my engine bay, its rammed full of LPG pipes. Tricky to get into places without dismantling a lot.

    I did the glove test yesterday. It was being sucked in at idle. A bit of throttle and is appeared to push out, but nothing mega.

    I found some maintenance bill at some point that mentioned the oil breather. Looking at the PCV pipes, they are in very good condition which makes me think its been done at some point although I should do it to be safe, like you suggest.

    I did leave the dipstick out a bit when I was trying to clear the mayo from the tube. I just ended up with an engine bay covered in oil. I would assume from your post that would suggest a restricted/blocked PCV?

    Bought some new general rubber o rings for the dipstick tube (couldn't find anywhere that actually sold the right one), none where the right size width but have made a seal which seems to have stopped the mayo build up completely which is a relief.

    No issues with new coolant or usage.

    Gearbox is silky smooth with gear changes rather than the lurch/thump before.

    Car going like a dream.

    Annoying suspension rattles remain, have top mounts and strut bearings to go on which I'm hoping with sort or if not make better. Will be able to get a good look at other components to check its not them also.

    Happy days
