Oil in air filter

Issue....oil on air filter. 2000Taurus, DOHC v6. The hoses are probably not original, specifically the hose running from the top of the oil housing on top of the engine. That hose is loose and runs to the air filter housing. I sthee a drawing available of the components art the top of the engine. Thank you!

    I agree but there is no PCV attached to the hose or oil cover. I checked and all descriptions so far describe the PCV valve as being located under the air intake. Directions for replacing the PCV include remova of air filter housing. The hose on top (air filter housing to top of oil chamber) is pictured as a 's' shaped tube only.

    But I agree, I will still have to check the PCV valve since it is a likely candidate

The part that connects to the top of the oil housing i believe would be the pvc valve... take it off and shake it... does it rattle ... if not replace it.

See here p13. You unclip the air filter housing top, loosen the circlips around each end of the boot (or corrugated hose), pull off the smaller hoses which join it, and wiggle it loose at each end. It is easier if you move the air filter housing top aside.

What type of air filter is best and how do i change it myself?

I always used K&N filters; check this information and links for 2004 FORD Explorer Sport Trac 4.0L V6 F/I - (All Models):

Part 33-2106-1 Product Specifications
Product Style: Panel Air Filter

Product Box Length: 10.44 in (265 mm)

Other alternative, if you can make it, install one new intake system with a conic filter and increase your HP (this work so fine in my Jeep 5.2L V8)...

Part 57-2529-1 Product Specifications
Product Style: 57 Series FIPK

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this).

VSC warning light and check engine code 786 on Lexus 2002 RX300

The VSC warning light, Trac Off and check engine is probably an easy fix. If you look under the air filter/cleaner box there is probably a rubber hose that has been disconnected from a steel line. This is common if you have had the oil changed recently, the tech will check the ail filter and doesn't realize the hose has been disconnected.

Oil in carburator in a 4 cylinder motor

Check pcv valve and vacuum hose to make sure they are working. Chances are that you have a broken or worn ring, or worn engine bearings. (excessive blowby) In which case there's not much short of rebuild or replacement of engine that will cure problem. You could remove the hose that is bringing the oil into the air intake off the air cleaner and route a longer hose into a can or something temporarily but it's not a cure.

Cts won't start after oil change

Had the same problem. 2005 Cadillac CTS with the 3.6L V6 would not start after a oil change. I started looking for wires and stuff that might have been disconnected. That is when I realized that I had also checked the air filter. The hose from the air filter box to the intake had come slightly loose from the intake. The car would not run with an air leak at the air cleaner box box hose. Put the hose on tight and problem fixed.
