    I have a new problem now which is the pcv hose on the valve cover is cracked. It is a ***** to replace. I have pulled the intake Manifold and the existing hose is looped through a gap between the throttle body and the manifold. The new hose is so rigid I don't want to try to force it in the gap. But the throttle body seems to not want to come off the manifold.

    Anyone have experience replacing a throttle body and know the secret to getting it free ?

    Here is a link to the thread that got me to this point. http://www.motoringalliance.com/forums/cooper/28548-burning-smell-oil-leak.html

    Call Best & ask Anson or call Detroit Tuned & ask Chad. Sorry that's all I've got.

    Well I figured it out today. Somehow I misplaced one of the throttle body screws so I went to dealer to order a replacement.

    While I was there I asked a tech how to get the throttle body off. There was a third screw in a blind spot and once I found it it came off easy peasey.


    I installed the pcv hose and re installed the throttle body.


    Now if I could just find the missing screw??

    I replaced one in an n14 engine not long ago. It was difficult but only because my hands are too big to easily cram in the space under the manifold. No screws were required though.
