Vacuum at oil cap. Burning oil

There will be a valve to control the vacuum and the vale needs to be replaced , if it's like the Vauxhall it's built in to the rocker cover. Have a look at where the breather comes out of the rocker cover and in to the intake there should be a valve if some sort if not look at the rocker cover

My 1.4ecotec astra is leaking oil out of oilcap when its closed what cud the cause be

Possibly the seal/gasket on the oil cap is defective. You can try replacing the cap to see if it corrects the problem. You may also have excessive internal pressure within the motor due to an improper functioning PCV system. Inspect/replace the PCV and related hoses for proper operation

67chevrolet6cly,low compression 2cly,oil blowing out oilcap,is it piston rings or vales

You need to have a basic leak down test done through the spark plug fitting in each cylinder to see where the compression is going.

For each cylinder, set the piston at Top Dead Center.
  • Hook the tester hose directly into the spark plug hole.
  • Hook the leak down tester up to the compressed air hose and zero the pressure.
  • Hook the tester to the hose and take your reading.
You can check where the pressure is going for that particular cylinder by listening for where the air is escaping.
  • If you remove the oil cap and hear a lot of air escaping, the rings are worn and that's where your compression loss is.
  • If you hear it coming out of the intake, the intake valve isn't sealing.
  • If you hear it coming out the tail pipe, the exhaust valve is leaking.
  • If you take the radiator cap off and see air bubbles coming out, you have a combustion leak into the cooling system.

    So have the test carried out on each cylinder and you can pin point the issue in each of the 2 which have tested bad with low compression.

When i give gas i hear a noise almost like an exhaust leak

you could have the start of an leaking manifold to find out if this is starting to happen spray some carb cleaner over the inlet manifold while engine is a temp if any changes happen when you spray an area i.e engine idles faster or cuts out then this is were you problem is going to start from. also check the air line with the cleaner. if every thing is fine then its just an intake clean is needed take the top off the inlet spray the carb cleaner in there let it sock for awhile and wipe out ht muck etc. don't do it with the engine running. after a good clean change the air filter. also on some models there is a secondary air intake vale check this as the vale can fail. when the engine valve fails can sound like the engine is high performance but with out the power. usually sits next to the exhaust manifold has 2 pipes coming out of the exhaust manifold to a pipe with a vale on it then a rubber pipe out to the front of the engine bay. some have fans fitted and some don't depends on engine number fitted. will have a filter at the end.

Spray the intake manifold on cylinder number where it bolts to the head with intake cleaner and see if the rpm's change and the miss goes away temporarily.There was a problem at the factory with the intake gasket being creased on cylinder number 1. This issue tends to be a lean misfire issue.

check these two things, the electronic egr valve, located at the front of the engine on top near the front of the intake, they are know for getting something in them and not working properly. also check the cold water temp sensor, located on the driver side of the head.the egr valvce can be taken apart nad cleaned, you might have to get a new gasket for it.
