After over a year of intermittent dying at stoplights, bad hesitation on acceleration and three trips to the dealer for 24K service and a $250 fuel filter change, I decided to take the bull by the horns. Tupperware came off (1st time), airbox and TB's came off with a little help from my friends here (previous thread), and now I am deeper into this engine than I have ever been. I have in hand four new TB connector boots, eight injector o-rings and a new crankcase breather tube, possible the most expensive rubber tube ever made. On first inspection of the TB's after lifting the throttle valve rail, I noticed heavy oil wetness on #2 and #3 throttle bodies. After removing the breather hose and cleaning, there didn't seem to be any holes or cracks. I've stopped for the evening, but will be back tomorrow afternoon. Anyone with suspicions or thoughts would be most appreciated! I really hope to get her back in tiptop running shape.
