Hello everyone! I'm new to R world but had an 850 wagon in the past. I've always wanted a V70R and recently got the chance to buy one with relatively low miles for its age. It's a 2004 and I got it for a steal but that means it also came with its fair share of issues that I've been slowly picking at a few at a time.

It's had a check engine light caused by an evap code pretty much since I got it (the light came on on the way home after buying the car of course). I replaced the gasket on the gas cap but no luck. However, I think I just found the problem. I'm doing some tuneup items and an oil change and just got under the car for the first time and spotted this broken line. It runs from the fuel tank area to just under the intake on the front of the engine. Nothing is leaking out of it so I'm guessing it's emissions related. Is it just a broken line or is there a part missing?

I also discovered my turbo is leaking oil. In addition to the external leak, there was some in the metal intake tube that runs across the top of the motor at both ends. I remember coming across some articles related to a common turbo oil leak but don't remember what it was.

Lastly, it seems as though my transmission might be leaking around the drivers side axle input. This doesn't appear to be oil from the turbo as it's just concentrated around the axle area and is not directly under the turbo. Sadly, it's an automatic. I'm guessing there is a gasket or seal there that will need to be replaced. Good thing I saw it before flushing my trans with a bunch of expensive Redline oil!

P.S. If anyone is in the Atlanta area and can recommend a reputable shop to install some BC coilovers, IPD rear alignment kit, and do an alignment I'm all ears. I'm new to the area and have no idea where to go.
Thanks for all your help!!
