You are getting what is called blow by. Which happens when there is to much oil in crankcase or an oil ring is bad in engine

Testimonial: "I generally have to keep the oil level low on this engine to prevent the leakage . The engine is on a Simplicity mower, and I have been told not to mow with the nose of the mower pointing down a hill. Thanks for your response must be an o ring. Hard to fix?"

    not hard but it is what would be considered an overhaul. Would need to tear down engine and re-ring pistons

Oil leaking into carb


Oil in the air filter is usually caused by blowby which is oil blowing past the cylinder rings, or a PCV valve that is not working correctly. The crankcase has too much pressure and oil is escaping out to the air filter where the crankcase is supposed to get fresh air from.
If the PCV valve and hose are ok, you may need another engine at some point. The rings and-or cylinders may have excessive wear.

Oil leaking from air filter


Hi Anonymous, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck and have nice day.

Oil leak


How long is a piece of string ? without a good look under the bonnet i couldnt say but make sure the engine breather is clean and not clogged as this would cause a build up of back pressure which will cause the oil top leak from everywhere possible

My audi has a oil leak of some sort which is leaking into the air filter unit and has soaked my air filter, the oil leak is coming form aline that runs along the top and side if the air intake unit. why...


follow the line backwards down to the block and clean the breather(if fitted) this is not an oil leak, the pipe is there to **** up the engine pressure when decelerating.........the air filter should be changed every 20 thousand miles/2 years.....

1998 Ford Windstar 3.8L ScanTool says that Bank 1 is lean


if your getting oil in the air filter area, you have a leaking intake gasket or a leaking head gasket, run a compression test on it,
if the compression is where it should be on all cylinders then its a leaking intake gasket!!!
