The motor has what is called a positive crankcase ventilation system (PCV - hence the valve). It also has a pipe that goes from the top of the motor to the air cleaner. If your piston rings are well warn, the added pressure that this produces will force a quantity of oil into the air cleaner. A small amount is normal. You are probably losing some oil through the rings as well. The loss of power may be that your compression is low from the bad rings. You can check the compression yourself. They sell compression testers for about 30 bucks. Follow the directions. If a piston does read low compression, squirt some motor oil in the cylinder after the first test. If the reading goes up, that means that the rings are bad.

You really need an inspection pit as the car needs to be level. Unscrew filler cap from front face of gearbox ( carefull though as there is a blanking cap as well and it is the one furthest from engine) The oil level should be between 5mm and 10mm below bottom edge of filler plug)

I have a 2009 ford KA and when driving on motorways the oil light flickers yet the oil is showing at the max level mark on the dip stick.???


The light is flickering due to low oil pressure or a faulty sender unit.
The first thing to do is to change the oil filter. If it hasn't been changed for a long time it will restrict the flow of oil going through the filter.

How can i change engine oil tank of 1998 Ford ka?


Do you mean the oil pan on the underside of the engine?
If you do, then the only real fix is fit a new one. The oil pan may be able to be changed with the car on a lift or over a pit. Pop into a local friendly garage and see what they say.

My Ford KA, oftenly has the air filter wet with oil,and the oil drips down to the ground.i have tried to take it to the mechanics and this hasn't helped.Please help,what should i do?


This can happen because the oil breather valve (or positive crankase valve) is not working properly. It can also happen if the engine has too much oil (overfilled).

Locate fuel filter ford ka


Fuel filter is located under the rear of the passenger side. Under the car sill towards the rear tire you will see the petrol tank. The fuel filter is fastened to the side in line with fuel pipe coming from the tank. Easy to replace, but make sure fit the right way round using the flow arrows.

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.
