Hello bpowell456....this is more or less a generic problem on the harley.... an over filled oil tank will make it puke oil from the intake and a sticky check ball valve will cause it also...this ball type valve allows oil to drain back ...very common after sitting a while|
Good luck ...hope this helps

SOURCE: leaking oil at air cleaner area

Hmm, take off the air cleaner cover, clean it all out, then fire the bike up, see if you still have a problem, it sounds like the engine vent might be plugged or restricted. After my old shovel sits for awhile, it always pukes out all the oil from the crankcase out the vent tube, but mine runs out on the swingarm, yours might run up to the air cleaner, too

My 02 galant runs rough when put in gear but in idle runs okay it also surges up and down replaced the plug wires


Okay, lets start with the oil you found on spark plugs when you were replacing them. this oil is coming from the valve cover tube hole area, notice the plugs go into the holes in the valve cover, there is a gasket the goes around the top of the tubes and when it leaks it goes into spark plug hole, the valve cover needs replacing .
this will cause rough idle and running problems, after replacing valve cover gasket the holes must be cleaned, using crab cleaner, spray into holes and use air to blow out . this may need to be done a few times to get oil out .
after oil is removed . then remove spark plugs and wipe them clean.
The next step is to find the air (vacuum leak) , you said you hear it around intake tube. check for cracks or broken vacuum line. this leak will cause idle problems and driving problems,

Oil in air cleaner !?!?!


Does it smoke at all? It's possible that you have either added to much oil, or you have worn pistol rings and the oil is slipping past the pistons and being forced into your breather.

My mower starts fine and then it idles up and down and up and down and dies? I have changed oil, plugs, fuel filter, air filter


First thing to check would be the base governor setting.This should be done by someone with small engine expertise.Can be fatal to engine and do bodily harm if not done right.Other things to check would be air leaks where carb manifold attaches to heads.Remove air cleaner assembly to gain access to carb linkage and manifold.You will need a can of carb cleaner to perform this check.Start engine and hold throttle at just above idle speed and carefully spray area where manifold attaches to head,do this on both ends of manfold and at carb base,area where carb mounts to manifold,if leak is present the engine will either die or their will be a change in rpm,s.If no leaks are found in these areas have carb cleaned,it is very likely there is dirt in the carb.You can do the same as above,start engine and hold throttle just above idle and spray carb cleaner into carb,engine will try to stall when doing this,only spray carb cleaner in carb while engine is running.If this doesn't help have carb cleaned and adjusted.Info from small engine tech with forty plus years experience.

Everytime i stop for a long or short time the car will cut off i replace the spark plugs and wires and the roader cap and ball


Possible vacuum leak. Use a can of carb cleaner spray to check for vacuum leaks. Remove air cleaner housing assembly and plug the vacuum line. Start car. While idling in park, spray cleaner around base of carb, intake manifold to head area and around all vacuum lines. If the idle increases or smooths while spraying an area, that is where the vacuum leak is.

Oil pressure light on at idle for Volvo S40 MY2005 B5244S4 Engine


Since you are going to check the one way valve and cleaning the filter too, I would recommend to check the intake air filter and clean it throughly. After that use carb cleaner to free up the nozzles of the injector valve . If the engine sound better after using carb cleaner, add some into the fuel from the fuel filter or pump, whichever one has easy access, and gun your engine in short bursts, after which it should run better.........sodeep

1995 chevy caprice impalass idle is high, why?


you didnt get the snorkel put back on correctly..look for KnN to be sticking out of air box a little causing air leak... hose (snorkel) not seated all the way around or clamped properly at air cleaner or throttle body.. or perhaps you caused a crack in it ..spray carb cleaner around those areas while at idle .. engine will change personality when you find leak area...good luck

Stalling & high idle 2002 Honda Odyssey


vacuum leak..look to area behind air cleaner to intake .. snorkel area first..spray carb cleaner there after you start it to discover vacuum leak.... this is a guess .. but a good one... check first for hoses off/ leaking intake air sources and let me/us know
