Why in oil coming air cleaner intake hose? Leaves a puddle every time I stop.


Hi
The engine produce little oil steam when is at normal temperature, this is normal.
This steam goes to the air cleaner for recycling.
Now, the reasons to see oil dripping from the air cleaner are:
Engine oil overfilled, or engine breather valve( if fitted) faulty, or the piston rings causing the pressure to scape into the oil sump ( this means engine damage).
get a technician to chem it.
good luck.

Will oil come to air seprator if there is any problem in turbo


If there is a problem in a turbo that allows oil to the air intake or exhaust then it will show as smoke out of the exhaust and a constant requirement to top up the engine oil level.. Oil in the intake manifold may be from the PCV valve and excessive blow by .

Oil in air intake hose


The most common reason is blow-by. The rings may be weak enough to allow compression to "blow by" the rings and get into the crankcase. The pressure pushes oil out the vent hose to the air cleaner.

Oil air intake


In most cases the oil is from too much pressure in the crankcase. The problem could be with the PCV valve or the piston rings could be weak.

Oil filter location


The oil filter on your 2004 sunfire is under the air intake hose. you take this hose off by loosening the two clamps that hold it onto the air filter housing and the air intake. Under that is a black cap with a large hex head on it, i believe 1.25 inch. that is the oil filter cap. take that off and pull the used oil filter off the bottom.

1991 Subaru Loyale- oil in air intake


There are only a few things that cause oil in the intake, most common is a plugged PCV (Positive Crankcase ventilation Valve), this causes pressure to build from the combustion process and forces oil into the air cleaner/air intake system, and in some cases out the oil seals, another issue is excessive engine blow-by, this is when the piston rings don't seal anymore and the pressure once again builds and forces oil into the air intake, the last and easiest to fix is an overfilled crankcase. Excessive oil burning of any kind will destroy the catalytic converter in a short period of time. How many many miles on the car, does it have excessive blow-by?
