Does the engine breather pipe have a pcv valve on it?
How much oil do you have to add? in a week? In a month?

    If the engine is cleaned off and the leak is detected at a certain spot, that will be helpful in trying to see if the tube that is leaking can somehow be sealed without jeopardizing function of the engine.

    If the oil filter were clogged how would that cause an oil leak? What theory is behind that?

I got a deutz 2011 tb deisel engine which is puting oil out threw the small breather pipe which comes from head to rubber intake pipe to turbo,air filter side.which is puting the oil out the exhaust

If you mean the breather is throwing out oil then you have a problem as this is caused by back pressure within the engine ,cause worn piston rings

Breather hose needs to be replaced

If you're a hands on person you could change it yourself. What engine do you have? And can you describe where the pipe is? A picture would be great. Let me know.

1999 audi a6 shakes, in ocations violently. Raw fuel smell. Loss of power. Burnt oil smell. idles poorly

If you had the ecu read it would probably say egr code. also a number of other codes to do with injectors and co2 sensor. you need to clean out the egr and clean out the air vent pipe from the sump to the top. also clean out the idle valve on the in take. also the breather pipes. you may even need to change the air filter. and when was the fuel filter changed. an oil change a filter change would not go a miss if it has not been done in awhile. routing maintenance will stop this happening again.

Smoke from oil cap and breather pipe vw golf chico 1.3

I would recommend an oil change first and second I suggest that you get in the habit of checking and topping up the oil as it is critical that you keep the oil level correct. Less oil hotter oil hence smoke and possible engine failure

Vauxhall vectra 2.2 sri petrol,,it drives perfect apart from sitting at the lights it revs up and downbetween under 1000-2000 revs,,it also sucks air in when pull dip stick out or take oil cap off,,any...

check air filter and also clean out the idle valve also check the breather pipes coming off the cam cover. one goes to the intake pipe and one goes to the bottom off the intake chamber thin one that will be block for definite as they do. on the back of the engine there is a black pipe coming off the cam cover and goes to a metal pipe take that off clean out the ends and you will need somthing like a long metal bit of strip and put a hook on the end push that down the hole and lift out the burnt oil push down until when it comes out there is oil on the end. then that end is clear then. on the thine pipe off the cam cover you need to clean the pipe out and this is the difficult bit the part were it fits to the intake you need to clean that out it is hard to get to but you can do it without having to take it all apart. when clean and putting back together i used an inline fuel filter on this line and it stops it clogging up the line. when all clean out and put back together and check that it blows out the oil cap and not sucks engine should be fine after this. I have had to do this one time on mine ecotec engine did it 6 years back and is still nice and clear run for a few days then change the engine oil and filter. jobs done.

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.
