I am in the process of trying to fix my car and when I removed the Engine Air Cleaner Box It started to drip engine oil all over the place. I need help because the engine stalls almost everytime I stop at a red light.
Do you
have the same problem?

The air box is a wonderful design isn't it?

The truck began stalling first and that is what you were going after? After removing the air box you started losing oil? Please clarify, also need to know what conditions the stalling happens, warm cold always.

The mini=-van stalls when it's hot or cold. When I removed the engine air cleaner box there was oil inside of it. The top of the Air filter had an oil stain. The amount of oil was equivalent to about half a quart. I installed the used air cleaner box because my mechanic thought that it was the cause of my engine stalling.

Sounds like you have blow-by. Sign of a tired engine. Make sure the pcv system is not restricted.
