Hi,

Today, in my research to find the cause of the short distances between regens and cleaning the air filter, I found that the hose after the air filter had some oil in it.
I don't know if this is normal or not. Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

It does seem to be excessive, but the small pipe you are pushing against is the oil breather from the crankcase. You need to check that none of that oil has blown back and contaminated the MAF sensor (the electric connector bottom left in your pic).
With that amount of oil going through the intake it's very likely that the EGR valve and the MAP sensor will be covered in gunge.
Thanks for your answer.
Why could be the reason of this issue? Do I have to be worried? Is a reason to go to the dealer?
Perhaps install a catch can. I installed one on my Mitsubishi Triton diesel (L200) in-between the crankcase breather and intake; works well.
I'm looking it for a long time ago, but there is several types and I don't know which one is the best for this engine. And here in Spain we don't have many models.
