Re: Re: [T3] oil fountain

Actually, fter further investigation last night I found the problem. The
 litle plastic hose between the pipe that is on the bottom side of the
 breather, and pipe on the top side of the oil fill tube was cracked. So when the car was idleing oil fountained out. I used a regular piece of heater hose to replace it.
