Your engine has severe blowby. The piston rings need to be replaced or your engine replaced. The excessive blowby is probably fouling out your spark plugs.

I purchased a 2003 late 52 plate vw passat 2.0 petrol 130 sport after a few days the oil light came on then i topped it up after two weeks of driving local i found i done a check and found it needed...

from the VW manual........"expect to use about 1 litre for every 500 km."the oil level should be checked every week".........some cars have a breather on the side of the block that needs cleaning every year.(looks like a metal canister about 2.1/2" tall by 4"wide with a hose to the inlet manifold/air cleaner).

Oil found in breather tube and intake 2005 Caviler 2.2 what can cause this?

when you decelerate the vacuum caused sucks the air/oil from the crankcase,lubricating the engine,if excesive you get smoke from the tailpipe.then rings are suspect.(blowpast)
also if too thin (5/30) an oil is used in an older engine (10/40)it will have the same symptoms.

I have a 2004 F-250 with the 6 liter deisel. It is missing bad at start and black smoking. also had the oil changed three days ago and found new oil laying in the air filter and breather tube.

That motor should have a longer warranty on it I would take it to dealer, they are really bad for head gaskets and turbo chargers, if there is any damage that has been sent out the exhaust make sure they remove the nox convertor(looks like a cat. conv.) and clean it out or you will loose power!

How do I replace the knock sensor on my 2003 kia rio?

On 2003 Kia Rio the knock sensor is located under the intake manifold and must be changed from underneath the car. If you remove the oil filter it is directly above it and is in clear view once the oil filter is out of the way. The connector plugs in behind the intake manifold air breather on the top side. If you remove the air breather cover it will help you get to it. I wish I had someone tell me where it was instead of looking for it for over 2 hours. It is simple after you find it.

Tranny parts?????

I am assuming that it is auto, if so it could be the breather tube has come out, the dipstick goes down the side of the trans and into the trans case above the trans sump, the dipstick tube should be near the rear of the engine and the dipstick has a round ring on it to pull out with your finger
hope this helps

can be a mass air flow, idle air flow ,or even a hole in the tube between the airbox and the throttlebody........any air leak will cause this to happen.make sure you have no vaccuume lines off either
