Noticed today theres a tiny bit of oil comeing through the breather hose into the intake pipe on my xr6, is this an overly bad thing? Possible causes? Cheers

Causes would be flogging it or due for a oil change or over filled with oil. Could be other things aswell.

blow by!, dont panic yet..
all engines have some blow by, some more than others, first things to look at is the condition and quality of your oil, check the pcv valve is clear and working..
worse case scenario is the compression rings are showing signs of wear..
