    One of the generic gauges at O'Riley's etc worked for me. Its like a m14x1.5 or soemthing threaded hole on the back of the block and I had to get an adapter from a hydraulics place.

    Thanks, TR
    It Would have helped if you had mentioned this in the first place.

    Go to your parts store and get any "Anerobic Sealant" (Lactate 518 or equivalent) DO NOT USE any other RTV

    Well after much delay...here is what was found.
    I took the time, purchased a gauge, sensor and adapter. After installation and oil change, cranked the engine for about 30 secs.= 0 oil pressure.
    Dropped the sump - photos show what I found - stunned is my response. Screen clogged, oil sump had thick gooey gunk - a mess.
    Ever since I added the updated the PCV, it has leaked oil - and this after ~10,000 miles. The only thing that has been added to the oil is about 6oz. UV dye to try and track the leak.
    Prior to installing the PCV I had read about the update causing leaks for some people.
    Is there a good tutorial - instruction on how this PCV is supposed to work - seems backwards to me.
    Thanks, TR

    Waow never see a mud like that impressive !! you're lucky to not having an engine seizure right now, for me you have a bad valve in your PCV sys.

    That was my thinking after studying the diagram again. You install a new part and expect it to be perfect - but perhaps not. I know the little PCV valve is good, it's easy to check - but will pull the hoses and clean and test the checkvalves.
    The bottom photo is when I started to clean and had sprayed with cleaner - it was just like mud.

    On the topic on a clogged screen: The last owner of my Saab 9-5 used ethanol fuel and I myself switched to regular petrol. So does anybody know if swithcing back to petrol from ethanol makes the screen clogg up more easily?

    The type of fuel used has nothing to do with the sludge issue and clogging up the oil pickup screen.
