Well, for #1 it's a good thing ya got all those tools 'cause you can use them to rebuild that motor to solve that problem.

#2 and #3 I honestly can't be much help. Maybe if you wanted to give more info...........

#1 sounds like bad blow by. Time for a new engine or rebuild.
I wouldn't worry about #2 too much untill #1 is fixed. fixing #1 will probably cure #2 :D

"3: brakes always tight", not sure what that means, or what could be wrong. I always assumed tight brakes were a good thing

Sounds like you have cylinder gone bad. Do a compression check to find out. Had the same thing happen to me with the oil coming in the air box. Cylindar 8 went bad on me. And a new engine later here I am

by air box you mean the thing on the drivers side of the engine bay, the big thing connected to the two big air hoses with the big filter in it? haha sorry for the retard discription but i just wanted to make sure i was on the same page...
if you have oil in there wouldnt it be coming from the valve cover breather tube?

yea, its comming from the breather tube, but theres way to much oil in there. I replaced the pvc valve and nothing happened, still does the same thing. My mechanic said there was something clogged inside, but i cant remember what and i dont have the money to get it fixed, id rather do it myself.

I have to go with Broncomx. Mine was doing the same thing, new pcv valves nothing happened. Turns out my #8 cylinder had a busted oil ring. New rebuild and problem solved.

Good Luck.

if you put your thumb over the pcv valve do you feel vacuam along with a change in rpm? Pcv hoses rot a lot from the inside out and then collapse and not function. Also was the pcv valve you took out plugged, the tube leading to the pcv may be plugged. Also with the pcv out and the engine running do you see a lot of smoke coming out where it goes in?
