Re: Winter Quirks

I can't tell for sure from your description of the noise, but it sounds like 
your rear crank seal might be leaking engine vacuum.  Howling sound is air 
sucking in around rubber seal until everything warms up and maybe alittle oil 
seals it.  Also explains no vacuum available for cruise control.  That was my 
problem on an 89 200tq.  It wasn't a big problem for me because it didn't 
leak much/any oil, but when I opened things up I replaced the seal and it was 
worn and somewhat stiff, but not radially cracked.  That seemed to solve my 
howling problem.
