Oil keeps getting into the breather changed pc valve hoses and filters


check sump oil level--excessive oil level will cause this
have a compression test done on the engine (both wet and dry) to determine engine condition---excessive blow by from worn rings , bore or cracked piston will cause this --- clean/ replace air filter as if there is a low pressure area after the filter , it helps suck oil vapor from the sump

When filling the gas tank gas shoots back out at me


Sounds like you have a venting problem with the breather hose.
There should be a hose coming off the neck of the gas filler pipe somewhere that relieves pressure out of the tank when you fill and when your pump sucks fuel it lets air in to balance the pressure. I would suggest this breather pipe is either bent or plugged somehow.

Toyota yaris 200 rattling on when the car is idle there is an air sucking noise around the air filter box.


Check the O ring beneath the air filter box. Put a new one, if it is absent or damaged.

Why do I have no ventilation in my crank case on my chevy truck


That is what the PCV system is supposed to do. Positive Crankcase Ventilation. The pcv valve (maybe on the valve cover) sucks the fumes out into the intake manifold by a vacuum hose. There is also a fresh air hose to the valve cover from the air breather. As the fumes are sucked out, fresh air is supplied in.
You need to check the pcv system.

2001 VW POLO 1.4 16v AHW, breather hose problem


if heave oil deposits are coming trough the breather then you may have other problems, such as worn piston rings causing exsessive blow by resulting in the oil being in the intake box, a filter will only create a restriction coursing more poblems, do a compresion and cylinder leak down test to find out how well the rings are sealing.
