How do i test if i still have excessive crankcase pressure?

I removed the flame trap filter from the flame trap nipple and i put everything back together.

I just had a problem with my 940 Turbo and found i had a bad turbo! You may want to check this out.If you remove the oil filler cap and if you see alot of smoke it may be excesive back presure for exhaust getting to crankcase through the turbo oil return line. If you know where to look rebuild kit is about $50.00 for your turbo! they are easy to rebuild but a pain to get off Dan

Thank you dan!
But i don't have a turbo!
And when i removed the oil filler cap, no smoke comes out.
Do this means that i fixed the problem?
That i just need to change the time belt and the seals?
The engine still leaks oil, but not as much as before.
If you have any other ideas, please let me know.

Thank you.
Hector.

I have the same problem with my 93 850. I have replaced the PCV system and the oil pump seals along with the front main seal and the cam seals. I now have oil literally spraying out from around the crankshaft and getting slung around by the timing belt. Obviously I have stopped driving the car. I'm at a loss as to what else it could be. If anyone has any suggestions, please help!
