Has anyone experienced and fixed oil leakage problem from the intake manifold and throttle body on 2001 TS Holden Astra 1.8l ? Thanks Hoffy

Engine seems to blow oil/fumes into the air intake via hose rather than via the other hose into the throttle body. Oil leaking from the intake manifold and top of throttle body.

HI normaly the only areas i would look at other than possible head gasket,Check oil level is correct, is there is a blockage in the engine breathing side (possibly internal of rocker cover) sludged up. Or possible excessive crankcase pressure of course any one of these could lead onto the other if all the above check out ok then a cylinder leakage test should be carried out.(this is different to a compression test).Good Luck

I'm experiencing rough/rocking idle of the engine. Also stalls when performing parking manouvers. Could i need new spark plugs?


check for air leaks or vacuum leaks around intake at the throttle body, be sure the rubber on the plastic of the air intake is sealing on the throttle body. may also have bad valve cover gaskets allowing oil into spark plug holes deteriorating the coil boots and causing a misfire.plugs will be good til about 80,000miles

2001 dodge durango engine rpm's are fluctuating up and down. what could be causing this and could this cause the transmission to shift eractically


Quest#1 Your intake manifold is leaking
Quest#2 Yes
Spray carb cleaner while running at intake manifold gasket , both sides, and check for a difference in running condition while spraying to confirm leak here. Replace all intake manifold gaskets and plenum gasket.
If this does not confirm intake leak , have the Throttle Body cleaned manually by a professional, or yourself using specifically" Throttle Body Cleaner "
