All of sudden she started blowing out oil? I've redone all the breather hoses and seals have no clue I've not found anything wrong? In a 25 mile drive it will blow out several quarts May be just my luck it seems to be in limp mode? May be unrelated but now it spins over fast like a crank position sensor please help this is are only car Have a Blessed day Dave



First of all, what engine is it? 

Is your Check Engine Light on? 

Which breather hoses have you replaced? 

Does it run on all cylinders? 


Hi Boki the engine is the 98 Mercedes M112 2.8 v6 It runs like a sewing machine even though the oil issue. As for the breather hoses I replaced all of them.. Coming home last night it was like crazy, then the check engine light came on. It now spins over fast like a crank trigger but I'm not sure? On a limited income I cast afford taking a wrong turn.  lol

Where does it blow the engine oil out? 

Here is a simple way to verify if your breather system is OK - blow hard trough a oil filler hole on your engine for several seconds. There should not be noticable pressure build up/resistance. In addition, you can take the breather hose off the intake manifold, to see if there is a flow while you blow. 

Next, with engine running, take out the oil dip stick. There shouldn't be much smoke coming out. 

can you explain a bit more about 'spins over fast like a crank trigger'?
