Two questions.

1. I found some oil condensation on a PCV #6 hose coming from the nipple that goes into the cam shaft cover. It is the small hose that branches off and goes to the throttle body. Is this a problem?

2. What do these bushings do in the picture. There are a few of them around they engine and they are kind of loose when you wiggle them. Is this normal? I have P1110 error and I think it may something to do with my brake bossters.

I know these are kind of dumb questions, but it's better than just ignoring them. Thanks all.

to answer your number one, no not really. that hose gets beat up fast, but dont worry to much about it. Same with mine, and a local indy (worked on saabs for 25 years) said its not a big deal. although i wish i could say more about its function

Usually some sort of one way valve in an engine vent system so loose is good

Actually this picture is of the bushing that holds the vaccum lines for your brake booster into the intake manifold/brake booster and booster solonoid. So make sure that you can't pull the hard plastic hose out of them (don't pull hard just a little tug) because if you can the you DO have a vaccum leak to your brake booster. Next step would be ordering some news up. Good luck.

Oh and none of the questions you asked were dumb. It would have been dumb to not ask them.
