    Uh oh. Oil in the airbox tube.

    During an air filter change, I pulled the tube that connects the airbox to the throttle body. Discovered it was full of oil. So much so that I had to pour it out and then wipe it out. I don't know if this just started or has been happening slowly over the years. Car "burns" 1 qt per thousand miles. Any advise would be be appreciated. Thanks.
