That air hose is vital to your engine's health as it is it's link to the air filter.
Our engines are exposed to a lot of dust and it should not get past the filter.
I cannot tell you what is going wrong, but suggest you source a new pipe and hose clips.
It could be just as simple as to how and where you are refastening to.
Perhaps someone else has experienced this and is better able to help.
Too much oil in the crank case.
Burning it off could destroy your catalytic converter, and that is an necessary expense.
Starting with a cold engine, there are two possibilities I would consider.
1. There are hand pumps you may be able to thread down the filler hole into the crank case, I have one I bought for a mower.
Alternatively: Using a plastic hose you might be able to siphon out what you need.
2. Get a very clean container, clean off the sump plug and the area around it and then drain the sump, putting back only what you need.
Be careful both ways to keep any dirt out of the engine.
Hope this helps,

can anybody help?
the black very wide tube (air intake hose) which comes off the left hand side of the air filter keeps popping off........it has happened about 3 or 4 times now....we just screw it back on but occasionally it pops off again....it's quite dangerous as it has happened on main roads......
We put too much oil in our van a few weeks ago and read that this might be the cause:the oil increases the pressure in the hose. Anybody know what is the best thing to do.....shall we go through an oil change or just wait that the oil will burn away?
