What you have there is the precursor to the PCV valve. The pipe coming off the side cover is called a "road draft tube" which equalized the pressure inside the engine. For more info try this post:

bacagrizz,

thanks for the link!

I have read the linked post. Unfortunately I am still not clear what's wrong, if fluid comes out of the hose.
I hope you can explain that in more detail.

Following the diagram from the engine:

Is the "fluid" more than the amount of condensation you would expect on start-up? Is it an actual flow of water? If so, you have a cracked block and water jacket coolant is leaking into the valve chest. Is the fluid green like antifreeze? If it's a cracked block, it will leak out of there whether it's running or not.

If it's just a drip-drip-drip of clear water when running, you need to warm up the engine thoroughly to evaporate water in the crankcase, and probably change the oil.

On last sunday we had the following situation:

After a halt of about 6 weeks we have started the truck again.
Then, for about an hour, fluid (about 0,4 gal) came out of the hose. not in idle, only on accelerate. The liquid smelled like gasoline. Maybe mixed with some oil. But we are not really believe that even cooling liquid was present because in the radiator was nothing less Damn - I really have no idea what that is. It's also not possible that so much gasoline flows through the engine, right?

In the meantime, we drove about 150 miles with the truck without liquid coming from the hose. Only some smoke on the first 60 miles. Then this stopped also.

The engine is not getting hot and on the day after no oil or other liquids was on the floor.

Please forgive me my bad English.

Kind Regards,
Daniel

Check the oil; does it smell like gas? I suspect your fuel pump diaphragm is ruptured and gas is getting into the crankcase. The fumes will condense in the valve chest. Needs to be fixed ASAP!

Indeed...ALBUQ F-1 is giving you good advice. If the fuel pump diaphram is broken, gasoline can go into the crankcase. Initially it will dilute the oil, but it will quickly evaporate and the fumes will go out of the road draft tube. If it was cool out and you were just warming up the engine, the fumes could condense and show up as a liquid. Later on when everything was warmed up it would just go out as a vapor. You probably would notice that your gas mileage is a little worse than normal. The oil level may also appear to be a little high.

And...welcome from California. Maybe you could send us another Austrian governor for our state!!

That will not be easy. The good politicians in our country are not easy to find because they occur very rarely. The most others are like our comedians: talk a lot nonsense, unfortunately is not for laughing

Oh, and we have to offer no more Hollywood stars to.
