Oil seeping from several locations on the engine. Told due to pressure caused from clogged PCV system. Expensive to repair.

Oil leak from front of engine (behind radiator fan on block) increased with time. General shop could not identify source of leak. Dealer seemed to know immediately from general location and size of leak that it was leaky "oil trap." Intake manifold needed removal for repair -- $750 at local Volvo dealer.
