Thank you Sir. I have a few more Km than you do - I'm at 141,000
I have that red O-ring seal, but not sure if I have to go and take it out. My hands are itchy though, and prolly the ICV needs a cleaning. Not sure about the throttle valve.
Also, maybe the distribution piece needs a change - Jason5driver said when he removed it, it was considerably heavier than the new one. Filled with old oil. That distribution piece came off when he did the CCV work.
Not sure if one can clean out that stuff from the inside? It's either a new one (with the new O-rings) or new O-rings and clean the old unit (like a 5% chance...)
