1997 subaru outback legacy overheating
I've had the same problem all year. I've had four different mechanics look at this car - 97 legacy with 2.5. I've had the coolant seals replaced, the radiator cap, the thermostat, the water pump - all to no avail. I've realized now that it only overheats shortly after running sustained high rpm's. Recently the last mechanic mentioned the bleeder valve (I didn't know it had one and think maybe he didn't know either - not a subaru mechanic). Recently it overheated again (again sustained high rpm's - apparently more prone to produce air in the system), I sat the vehicle on an incline (raising the bleeder valve to be the highest point) and let the car warm up and run for half an hour. Now 300 miles and no overheat. I went through alot with this car to get to this point. Unbelievable.

What is engine code p1507 ?
This is an idle air control concern. There have been cases where other issues have caused this concern, such as vehicle speed sensors and neutral safety switches. First thing I would check is the black rubber "L" shaped hose that starts on top of the throttle body, and runs down towards the alternator then bends towards the power steering pump and connects to a solenoid valve assembly. Pull the hose off and check for debris, such as spider nests. A clog in this hose can cause idle control issues. I hope this info helps.

Why oil is leaking from air cleaner 1999 chevy venture?
The engine produce little oil steam when is at normal temperature, this is normal.
This steam goes to the air cleaner for recycling.
Now, the reasons to see oil dripping from the air cleaner are:
Engine oil overfilled, or engine breather valve( if fitted) faulty, or the piston rings causing the pressure to scape into the oil sump ( this means engine damage).
get a technician to chem it.
