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.

Ford truck xlt ranger2.3 litter oil in throttle body ? good or bad


I found out with my old 94 Ranger 2.3L that the oil breather does not have a filter element, which causes oil to "naturally" (as Ford puts it) accumulate in the throttle body and air intake hose. You can get an inline breather element at any parts store for a few bucks and install it on the breather line without harming anything, and this will stop. Cheers.

Volvo v50 t5 oil leak


Most likely it is the breather tube and/or the oil trap box (integrated into the oil filter housing). if the box is plugged or the diaphragm is torn the box will send oil to the top of the engine via the hose.

do you also have a high pitched whistling noise?

Volvo has extended the warranty for the oil trap box (filter housing) to 120k miles and/or 10 years.

Air pressure coming from oil filler neck


Could be any one of a number of problems but first i would check the engine breather which will be a tube from the rocker cover to the air intake as in this tube could be a gauze wire filter and this might need cleaning but iam not familar with this engine so i honestly couldnt tell you where to look for the breather or even what it looks like on this engine which iam assuming is a indian built engine .

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1998 c70


There isnt' one. Volvos are equipped with vent-box located underneath the intake manifold. Remove the oil dip stick tube and then the intake manifold and remove the box. Install a new breather box and make sure to clean the lines going to and from the box. If the breather box gets clogged, oil will push from the oil filler cap, dip stick tube and worst case, blow through the engine seals.

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.
