Question about 2001 Volvo S60
Where is it located, and is it difficult to replace. I've traced a breather house from on top of the engine, next to the oil fill cap, down trough the intale to a black plastic box towards bottom of engine. Is it located in the box? If so, is there an easy way to replace it, without pulling the whole intake as it appears to be the only way to get to the box?
You are going to have to remove the intake filter, figure out which one of 13 oil traps you have, and replace it with a new one, as well as the associated hoses for the PCV system. Make sure you have an intake gasket before you go back together.

It's not that bad at all. After you remove the three bolts for the power steering pump and the two bolts for the drive belt tensioner it is sitting right in front of you.

The smoke coming from the valve cover and dipstick is called blowby. It is combustion gases the have passes by the piston rings . A small amount of blowby is normal on all engines. The PCV system(Positve Crankcase Ventilation)pulls the gases out and directs them back into the egine to be burnt again. I would first check the PCV system to make sure it is working proper. Also a compression test of the engine will tell you which cylinder is not sealing proper. If the compression test is ok, a leak down check of the cylinders will determine if the engine is wore out.
