Sounds like you might have excessive blowby due to worn rings. You could also have a bad pcv valve causing excessive crankcase pressure. Pull the pcv valve out completely from the valve cover and the hose going to it. Start up your vehicle. If you have extreme pressure and oil coming out of the hose now it is excessive blow by. If not and the oil stops coming out of the fill cap, change your pcv valve.

SOURCE: 2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

Most possible oil leaks from valve cover rubber oil seal. Remove valve cover, inspect , clean surfaces, and replace with new rubber oil seal .
Good luck!

Where is the oil cap on a 1999 Dodge Caravan?


The oil cap depending on what motor you have is on top of the valve cover or on top of an extension tube along side the valve cover and it will look like the picture below, might be black in color. these simply unscrew to remove.

Jack up pass side.Put cardboard, BIG piece under engine just in case. Using a pan to drain the oil in put under oil pan drain plug. Remove drain plug with socket wrench. Let drain 5 min. Check the gasket on the drain plug, if bad replace with new gasket .99 cents to replace gasket only on plug. Put plug back in DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN the plug. Slide drain pan with drained oil to the front to remove oil filter. Using a filter wrench remove oil filter. Let drain. When installing new filter put a little new engine oil on the rubber gasket on the filter with your finger. Screw filter back on tighten with filter wrench. Fill van with oil from front valve cover opening.

Where do i put oil in my 1978 Chevy C10 pickup


If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question.

I believe that year had distributorless ignition, instead it uses a form of coil on plug ignition system.

If you open the hood, stand at the front of the vehicle. Look to the left side of the engine, around the bottom of the valve cover (The valve cover is where the oil fill cap is. The oil fill cap is on top of the valve cover), at the bottom of the valve cover on the left side you will see a series of humps. Those series of humps is the coil packs, the coil packs are all in one long piece held down by three or four bolts.

Take out those bolts, gently pry up at the ends of the coil pack and it will eventually come out. You'll see on the bottom side the spark plug boots are attached to the coil pack. After you get the ignition coil pack off, you will see the spark plugs under where the coil pack came from, the boots on the coil pack sit directly on the spark plugs.

Have you looked on the valve covers? There might not be an actual OIL CAP but just a cap & tube that goes directly into the valve covers.
