shatto, how did your usage patterns differ? Did your Volvo get driven long-distance daily like your Dakota did?

The Volvo Doctor told me it was the Arco gas. I'm sure that in the ensuing twenty years their petrol has improved.

I have buildup in the intake from the PCV system, and I'm thinking about just spraying gasoline in through the PCV port. I'm guessing the O2 sensor will adjust the amount of injector pulse, so it will hopefully run. Does this sound like a good idea?

i don't have much experience or knowledge of E10's cleaning effectiveness. many swear by using sea foam in vacuum lines.

gotta wonder...w/ alcohol now in our gas and self cleaning injectors, do we really need FI cleaner? this is no to suggest that injectors don't leak or fail.

Let's say I try this water treatment - pour a quart slowly down the throttle body, with an assistant holding the RPMs at about 2000. Then I drive it hard around the city block, and park it.

Later I check the oil, and find it to be milky colored. I got water in the crankcase.

Would this water boil off, or should I change the oil?
