I got a deutz 2011 tb deisel engine which is puting oil out threw the small breather pipe which comes from head to rubber intake pipe to turbo,air filter side.which is puting the oil out the exhaust

If you mean the breather is throwing out oil then you have a problem as this is caused by back pressure within the engine ,cause worn piston rings

Vauxhall vectra 2.2 sri petrol,,it drives perfect apart from sitting at the lights it revs up and downbetween under 1000-2000 revs,,it also sucks air in when pull dip stick out or take oil cap off,,any...

check air filter and also clean out the idle valve also check the breather pipes coming off the cam cover. one goes to the intake pipe and one goes to the bottom off the intake chamber thin one that will be block for definite as they do. on the back of the engine there is a black pipe coming off the cam cover and goes to a metal pipe take that off clean out the ends and you will need somthing like a long metal bit of strip and put a hook on the end push that down the hole and lift out the burnt oil push down until when it comes out there is oil on the end. then that end is clear then. on the thine pipe off the cam cover you need to clean the pipe out and this is the difficult bit the part were it fits to the intake you need to clean that out it is hard to get to but you can do it without having to take it all apart. when clean and putting back together i used an inline fuel filter on this line and it stops it clogging up the line. when all clean out and put back together and check that it blows out the oil cap and not sucks engine should be fine after this. I have had to do this one time on mine ecotec engine did it 6 years back and is still nice and clear run for a few days then change the engine oil and filter. jobs done.

Car keeps dying when giving gas, idles low, dies at stoplights and stop signs

Problem could be either to much air OR to much fuel in inlet manifold
If you have a pipe broken or come off the inlet manifold from either a breather from the engine that could cause it, or a problem from the fuel tank such as a fuel filter on the line from the tank to the engine,or Air Filter needs cleaning etc, or even a air leak in the Inlet manifold gasket.

My audi has a oil leak of some sort which is leaking into the air filter unit and has soaked my air filter, the oil leak is coming form aline that runs along the top and side if the air intake unit. why...

follow the line backwards down to the block and clean the breather(if fitted) this is not an oil leak, the pipe is there to **** up the engine pressure when decelerating.........the air filter should be changed every 20 thousand miles/2 years.....

spray some carb cleaner down the breather pipe the carb could be clogged up so it is not opening properly and choking the engine or flush out your feul they may be dirty and your not getting enough fuel through when you need it or your air intake senser might need changing cus if your air/fuel mix is wrong your engine will stall

Hi Tom, Sounds like your car may be running in limp mode. might be worth a diagnostic check and clear any codes and get them reset. Hope this works.

Car dont want to idle it does wen i remove breather pipe

If you are saying when you remove the air duct hose from the front of the car to the top of the engine, then look for a plugged air duct or filter that is starving the engine of air when all is assembled properly.

I dont know where to find the battery and oil filter

If youre looking at the engine, the oil filter is on the right side of the engine, you have to get to it from the bottom of the van. The battery im not too sure off the top of my head, it should be on the right side as well, possibly tucked away in the back corner.
