SOURCE: Blowing oil out the dipstick

Check the oil when the engine is cold. Make sure it's at the correct level.


The Positive Crack Valve (PCV) is partial blocked.

This is under $10 item. You should change it.

The location of the PCV is on the top (or near top) of the valve cover.

Replace it and the oil/smoke will reciculate back to the correct path (back to the valve cover).

What are the sighs of a bad head gasket

there are a few ways that a head gasket can go bad.
1. it can blow between cylinders, which causes rough running.
2. it can blow between water and oil passages, which will either get you engine oil into your radiator or antifreeze into your engine oil. you will be able to see these as light brown froth on the dipstick, or when you open your radiator you will see the froth there too.
3. it can blow from the cylinder to the exterior which will cause rough running again and loud repetative hiss when the engine is running.
4 it could blow from a coolant or oil passage to the exterior, which will cause a coolant or oil leak where the block meets the head.

hope this helps ~ Zach

Missing on acceleration and blowing oil out dipstick

check your PCV ( positive crankcase valve ). It sounds like you are building up pressure inside the block and the valve isn't regulating it like it's supposed to....that pressure has to go somewhere and the dipstick is the next weakest link.

Don't know where to poor my oil in my 1981 ford f100. there is not filler tube

there shouldn't be a filler tube, just a dipstick tube for checking the oil level. to put the oil in the engine, there should be a oil cap on the right hand side valve cover. if the dipstick tube isn't there, you definitely need to get one from a parts yard or store, you can be losing oil from the dipstick hole that goes to the oil pan...

Need to know how to check oil in transmition in a 95 ford aspire

Check the engine oil level every time you fill the gas tank. The car should be on level ground when checking the oil.
  1. Turn the car off and wait several minutes.
  2. Locate the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube.
  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean rag and reinsert it in the dipstick tube.
  4. Remove the dipstick again, hold the dipstick horizontally and observe the level of the oil.

Fig. 1: Grasp the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube

Fig. 2: Observe the oil level on the dipstick and add oil if it is low

  1. The oil level should be at the FULL mark on the dipstick.
  2. If the level is at or near the LOW mark, replace the dipstick and add fresh oil to bring the level up to the FULL mark. Do not overfill.
  3. Recheck the oil level and close the hood.

Good luck, and remember rated this help!!!

00 ford focus wagon a/c & engine smoke problem

Engine smoke problem-- Automatic, chk transmodulator. If oil in vacuum line, modulator is defective. Engine sucking up trans fluid. 10.00 fix . good indicator is smoking at cruising speed or deceleration.
Bad rings smoke under acceleration and bad valve guides smoke on deceleration. poor crankcase ventilation (pcv valve) will cause engine leaks and oil blowing out of dipstick. Good Luck
