I was reading the posts and came across references to a PVC box
  • What is a PVC Box?
  • What does it do?
  • Where is it?
  • What maintenance is required?


Thanks in advance!

Note: it seems the other person was referring to a PCV. Here is the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crankcase_ventilation_system

Still, where do I find the PCV for my 940, and what maintenance is required? Also, how do I check if mine is OK?

this box is bolted on to the side of your crankcase,if you are at the front of the car,it is on the right hand side,a small short hose goes down to it,look down under your throttle,care needed when removing it,remove the two 12mm bolts ,and lift up the way,it is a small black box,it can be cleaned,it will have a mix of carbon and oil,so clean it out or replace it.
