my mechanic said you're not supposed to.. along with the lower pcv o-ring isn't supposed to be there, but yet without the o-ring, it made a horrible hissing, willwren gave me pics of his WITH an o ring, my brothers 3800 MCSS has one on it, and to top it off, it'* still losing fluids
is it supposed to be changed and how much is the part
Have you read ANYthing about the UIM failures on the VinK motors?
Not changing that UIM could eventually cost you the entire motor. It has for a dozen or so members here in 3 years.
And what pic did I send you? I don't recall that.
Your mechanic isn't very 3800 savvy apparently, and your friend with the MCSS....is he supercharged or not? If not, he'* got serious issues that are going to cost him his motor. I suggest he join our Forum ASAP.
