    Got the oil pressure sensor replaced, it was definitely leaking. Iím sure I have more leaks, the passenger side control arm is basically soaked with oil. It could be the timing cover, or maybe crank seal? More to look into

    Got a few more things checked off the list...new oil filter, valve cover gaskets, serpentine belt/tensioner/idler pulley. The hose going from the oil trap to the valve cover is broken, so I bought the entire kit from eEuroparts that includes the trap and all hoses; but for the life of me I canít get the hoses disconnected from the trap! I feel like I need a third set of hands to pull as Iím squeezing those grey tabs. I considered just cutting the hoses off so I can slide the trap out the bottom, but thatís kind of a point of no return solution. The two bolts holding the trap to the block are already out, intake bracket is out, I feel like Iíve given myself the best chance of success but Iíve so far failed miserably. If anyone has any suggestions, Iím all ears!

    Haven't tackled that one either. My '99 doesn't have the oil trap set-up but is one of the things I was gonna hit this spring.

    Ended up cutting all the hoses close to the trap (I have all new ones) and then was able to get it out. What a bear...it looks like the older traps are much smaller than the one on my Ď06. I thought Iíd be able to get it out under the car, but the exhaust would probably have to be dropped to get it out that way. I read somewhere that a guy got it out the top, towards the right side between the intake and belt tensioner, so thatís where I finally got it to come out. Took quite a bit of cursing and scratched up hands/arms, however!

    Finished up installing the hoses last night. My god, what a pain. That whole design is the spawn of the devil, I swear. I spent about an hour and a half wrestling with the hose from the oil trap to the valve cover...only to finally discover that there was an extra o-ring stuck in there that was preventing it from seating all the way. After I figured that one out it went a LITTLE better, but still a huge pain. Glad thatís all over! Just gotta replace the vacuum lines with silicone now, but that should be a cake walk compared to that disaster.
