Oil on air filter

When I checked the air filter on my equinox I noticed that there was an oil residue on it. Can you help me understand what is going wrong and what needs to be replaced so this does not continue?

SOURCE: wont start has fuel and has spark

RC ralston
Your problem is a leak in the cpi pletium most likely the pressure line has a leak
had same problem with mine $45.00 PRESSURE LINE KIT AND $15.00 GASKET FOR PLETIUM and 2 hours labor problem sovled.
You can remove vortec cover and remove air regulator to look inside pletium. I had gas vapor on driver side . that is where fuel lines are. fuel regulator is on passenger side. turn key on and look in hole and see where fuel is spraying. taking pletium off you can again turn key on and make sure where fuel is coming from.

SOURCE: where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox

Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

How do I fix cod po301


Hello Carlos,
It is a common problem with '99 Cady (Random Misfire Detected)
  • Start the car and carefully pull the plugs boot out one by one, and put it right back (a few seconds is enough).
  • Take Notice of of which one is affecting the RPM of the engine ( slowing down and and shaking erratically).
  • With the engine Off.
  • Use the appropriate socket and again one by one take out the spark plugs and check them for oil and heavy residue build up.
  • If there is Oil in anyone of plugs, take the car to mechanic and let him or her do an evaluation or diagnostic.
  • You probably need new coil packs and spark plugs.
  • Change the oil and the air filter too, if they are dirty.
  • Check also the fuel filter.
  • If the code does not go away by itself, have it reset by a mechanic.
Best of Luck,
JP

If there is a tiny oil spot on the concrete by the oil filter what could cause this


possible residue from filter change,or the filter may be lose,if you can reach it try tightening it,it should only need to be hand tight. either that or when oil was added they may have spilt a drop.but more likely to be residue from filter change as when filter is changed i normally smear some oil around the new oil filter seal.

I have a 2003 Chevy Cavalier with almost 90,000 miles on it just recently I have noticed it is burning a lot of oil, however I have not noticed any oil leaking no residue on the ground or no smoke. I have...


have you checked the pcv valve ( positive crankcase ventilation ). plugged pvc symtoms-- can contribute to sludging of engine. it will build up pressure in crankcase if plugged. the pressure can blow out seals, it can also force oil past oil rings and burn oil up in engine. shake pcv valve, if it rattles its ok. if all else fails check oil pan gasket and filter also. ive seen holes in oil filters or they are loose. and upon driving, pressure is put on oil and it blows out.

Cylinder 3 misses and has carbon biuld up on plug also looks to have oil on the plug, smell like oil is burning , smokes alot out of tail pipe,oil consumtion is a qt, per 300 miles and it looks like oil is...


Geez!

U got a bad piston rings! U have to pull down the PiSTON to replace the PiSTON RiNGS, oil is getting in ur combustion!

Or

Check also the valve guide oil seal, hope that is the faulty one! 'Cause replacing PiSTON RiNGS will cost a LOT!


Check on that first, Oil in ur air filter means a BLOW BACK gas from ur combustion is pushing the oil into the air filter!

BLOW BACK is a residual combustion air that should have been burned or gone thru the exhaust, but w/ poor seal of ur piston ring, it goes into ur CRANK CASE and into ur EGR system w/ excess oil!

Hope that explains everything!

Is the fuel filter non serviceable ?


It is ideal not to reuse the fuel filter because it will always be choked with very fine dust and is not at all adviceable.
However if there is an emergency when the replacement is not available you can back flush it with air, after filling with fuel to remove off residue .
