    Hi there

    My 1989 480 Turbo has only done a genuine 70,000 miles and has a full
    Volvo Service History but when it is idling it blows blue smelly smoke
    out of the exhaust. It does not use / burn oil - barely put any in
    during last 6,000 miles. I am sure it is crankcase breather pipes and
    / or `breather valves` which are blocked or non functional. Trouble is
    there are so many pipes and the Haynes Manual is no help in locating
    the breather system. Please could someone talk / mail me (or send a
    pic?) so that I can locate respective bits of the breather system
    which may need cleaning out etc?

    Thank so Much

    Graham
