I had the entire PCV replaced last week. Including the big metal pipe. Is it included in that?

Yep - life is good ...here is the diagram. If you did PCV, you replaced that last coolant hose.

Its that hose that is loose open on the diagram and connects to a banjo fitting on the rear of the engine and warms the PCV gases in the PCV system - one of the reasons our P2s don't clog as much (that and being superior people to P80s)

The banjo fitting on the left of the diagram is a vacuum fitting, the banjo on the right is a coolant fitting.

Number 8 in the diagram was replaced. Thanks! On a side note I thought a 2000 V70 was a P80 car

Technically its a P41 car...which is (P80+P2)/2

It carries the best of both....especially the sexy Italian Throttle Body..

(I think you are technically correct, it is a P80 designation)
