I think you might have to much oil in your vehicle. i would say change your oil and if it still does it i would take it to the nearest shop and talk to them about it.

On mazda b2600 1995 high oil pressure in sump


Hi Michael I assume your talking crankcase pressure? However if your talking oil pressure in general On a car of that age oil pressure normally drops not rises if this is the issue you would normally be looking at a blockage possible pressure relief valve or incorrect oil used , Sludging internal of engine or faulty pressure switch. If any major engine work has been carried out it may be something has been fitted incorrectly or wrong part fitted.
More common would be crankcase pressure on a vehicle of this age this may be raised. Easily checked at dipstick remove dipstick and you can normally feel it at the top of dipstick hole. Common cause would be from the minor to major issues; Wrong oil or over filled, engine breather system blocked, worn piston rings or bores or both, possible worn valve guides or guide seals (less common cause) but don't rule out.
Check the above in that order with regards checking piston rings bores , carry out compression test (dry) I.e. remove spark plugs and carry out test note readings. (wet) squirt about 3 shots of engine oil into spark plug holes from an oil can. Crank one revolution and retest compressions see if they rise dramatically. Again note readings Finally these tests should be performed by a qualified mechanic carry out a cylinder leakage test on all cylinders. After all tests are carried out you should be able to draw a diagnosis to what needs to be done. It may be that your engine is beyond economical repair and may be cheaper to drop a rebuilt unit in. Good luck

I have a 1990 205CJ, it has what I am hoping is only a loose wire or dirty terminal. 3 of the 5 dash ignition lights (temp, stop, oil) flicker intermittently when driving. Car does not overheat, all fluids...


remove the dash and clean the connections for the dash happens from time to time, some times even just pushing on the dash resorts it out as you are driving. the connections just need cleaning and resting.

Why is the motor oil come spilling out of the dip stick


There are a number of possible reasons ranging from overfilling with oil to a severely worn engine, but the most common cause is a blocked engine breather.

This needs servicing from time to time and when it's allowed to become blocked through a lack of maintenance it prevents excess crankcase pressure from escaping. The pressure still has to release somewhere and the dipstick is the most common route, as the gases escape through the narrow tube they inevitably push oil out as well.

If your engine hasn't had a major service then get that done first (it should include checking and cleaning/renewing the crankcase breather) and if the problem continues further diagnosis becomes far easier as you'll have eliminated any other causes which may be due to regular maintenance issues..

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

Whiteish gunk on oil dipstick


Wankel Rotary engine guys no headers or gaskets

This milky substance does not affect engine performance or any other functions of the vehicle. During cold weather, moisture contained in blow-by gases (exhaust , oil, fuel, water vapor) is cooled by the intermediate housing wall and condenses due to difference in temperature. A chemical reaction between the moisture reacts and the engine oil in the intermediate housing will yield the milky fluid. This fluid then eventually dissipates
as the engine warms up to full operating temperature.

The milky fluid does not affect the quality of the engine oil and therefore the engine performance is not affected either. Mazda has verified that the amount of moisture in the oil is within the acceptable standard for motor oils commonly found in the market.

However, you should verify that the coolant reservoir is full and that there is no sign of engine coolant leakage.

You can also go to you Mazda dealer and ask for a new oil level gauge tube plastic insert which has been developed as a countermeasure to keep the milky substance off of the dipstick (however, the substance will still be in there- it's a cosmetic fix only).

Hope this helps
