SOURCE: oil blow out the breather

An overfull oil tank will do it. Even if not overfull just about all harley's will blow oil out the air filter. Unless there is a bunch of oil coming out, it's not a problem What I've found is that the air filter eventually gets saturated and then starts to leak through. The level in the oil tank doesn't seem to matter. If you change the air filter the problem goes away, until the new one gets saturated and then it starts all over again. My plan is to get a K&N air filter, which you can clean yourself and save having to buy a new air filter every 4,000 miles or so.

SOURCE: oil blow out the breather

This is a common problem on all sportsters, they have an oil blow by that dumps it into the air filter. I have found that if I run about a half quart low the problem goes away.

SOURCE: 89 Harley FLTCU oil coming from the crankcase breather tube and

This is an age old problem for the Harley engine. In you 89 model, the crankcase breaths from behind the oil pump through a tube that runs to the backside of the air filter assembly. Most people that I know, simply remove the tube coming up to the air filter and block the hole in the air filter assembly backing plate. At the breather, they run a short hose to just behind the transmission and cut it off there. This is similar to the earlier Shovelhead engine and the way it breathes. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather system" which was better but it still gets oil into the air filter assembly.

There is one thing I saw on the aftermarket assessories market once called a "CatchCan". The breather tube ran to it and it seperated the oil from the air and the held it in a small container to be emptied on a regular basis. I have never used one nor have I ever seen one so all I can tell you is what the book said. Matter of fact, I cannot remember where I saw it now. Custom Chorme catalog, maybe. Good Luck, Steve

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.

I have a 2005/6 Honda Shadow Aero 750, I was coming home today which intails drropping dow a mountain....about 2000 feet over 5 or 6 miles....when i got to the bottom and noticed it was blowing...


Check your oil level. Engine braking down a mountain side could be overloading the breather system, only because most people do not know there are pollution tubes under and behind the motor, in front of the rear wheel. They collect oil and crud from the engine blow by and recycle it through the carburetor intake. If they are full it collects in the bottom of the air box. This is probably causing the smoke and oil you describe. Place a pan under the tubes and pull the plugs out. All the oily crud should come out. Then put the plugs back in. Also check your air cleaner for oil saturation you may have to wipe out the bottom of the air box or even replace an air filter. Also check that a breather tube has not come off of the top of the motor. This could also cause the oil between the cylinders you describe.

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.
