Post by IVN13B » Sat Jun 01, 2013 7:08 pm

So 1 of them goes to the oil filler neck, 2nd goes somwhere to right side of the motor, and the 3rd to left side of motor,
So here is my question:
On a turbo car such as mine, where should these 3 lines attach/connect to and what do they do(suck/blow)??? Can they be deleted?
Anyone outhere that knows about all this stuff please help!
Thanks

Are you thinking of the bleeder valve when you have a microtec which has no hysteresis control on opening the ssv.
