Why do i have oil comming out at spark plugs?1300 ford kent motor


if the breather is blocked its possible
also if the car smokes when idling it could be from collapsed oil rings
also wash the engine then run it to see if its maybe a tappet cover leak

Oil keeps getting into the breather changed pc valve hoses and filters


check sump oil level--excessive oil level will cause this
have a compression test done on the engine (both wet and dry) to determine engine condition---excessive blow by from worn rings , bore or cracked piston will cause this --- clean/ replace air filter as if there is a low pressure area after the filter , it helps suck oil vapor from the sump

Hi,my Toyota tazz 1,3manual trasmission leaks oil spark plugs,I had the valve stem seals replaced twice but still it's leaking


Is the breather pipe from the tappet cover to intake also oily wet inside? If so, there might be combustion blow-by past the pistons, caused by worn pistons and/or rings.

I THOUGHT IT WAS WORN OUT BECAUSE THE OIL IS COMMING OUT OF THE BREATHING-PIPE THEN I OVERALL THE ENGINE STILL THE SAME.


overall the engine does not mean the problem is solved ! sorry. the oil coming out the breather means the engine is not breathing properly. if the arrangement of the rings on the piston is not correct , the engine will have a blow-by... causing sump compression... and push oil through the breather. also sludge blocking passages ie. the tappet cover, will also cause a problem.

1993 ford festiva leaking oil from air filter


If everything were NORMAL, this would appear to be a case of oil blow-by from the pistons caused by worn-out or broken piston rings. If you witnessed the rebuild then we can rule that out. If you did not and are taking the rebuild on the word of another, it is easy to verify. Perform a compression check and look for low compression in one or more cylinders. The other possibility is that there is an obstruction in the air intake system. Animal can next there, the flapper could be struck, etc. This would cause the engine to pull air through the hose you mention, bringing the oil with it. Normally, this hose only actsd as a vent.

I have changed pcv valve twice and still getting oil in breather


The PCV valve does not control the oil situation, it just keeps the pans and valve covers from blowing off during a backfire. Excessive Oil in the breather is a result of excessive crankcase pressures, usually due to a worn engine, specifically rings.
SOME oil is normal, especially if you are loaded heavily and hard on the throttle.
There is a tester that measures crankcase pressures, but usually some other manifestation shows, like excessive oil consumption.

the PCV system draws crankcase fumes into the intake at idle and lower throttle situations. air going into the crankcase is filtered by the small PCV filter, where the oil shows up....

At highter throttle and lower intake manifold pressures, the system reverses, the PCV valve closes, and the fumes exit the crankcase VIA the breather filter. All of this is normal.

It costs tons less to periodically clean or replace the PCV filter.

Shooting oil out of dipstick


Your engine breather system is blocked....this means that the only way that the compression caused on ignition that is getting past the piston rings and into the block can escape is via the dipstick tube.
Check breather for kinks and some have filters ensure that these are not blocked
