Check your PCV valve and system. The Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve is designed to reduce vapors and pressure inside the crankcase from building up. This pressure is caused by blow-by of exhaust gases past the piston rings and into the crankcase. The PCV valve will remove this blow-by, unless the rings are so badly worn that they overwhelm the PCV system. The valve sucks out the vapors and a fresh air hose from the air filter housing to the top of the valve cover keeps normal atmopheric pressure in the crankcase.

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).

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.

I have a problem with oil blowing back through the dipstick in my 1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ 6 cyl engine... I have built a few engines of various types over the years and have done all my maintenance all my...


No solution from me, Note: Sounds like your pretty familiar with the Positive crankcase ventilation (PCV). You said the valve is pulling a vacuum I am assuming it is from the intake manifold side correct? With the PCV was working sure seems like it would keep the oil from coming out of the dipstick tube. I am stumped as well, sounds almost like too much blow by from the cyclinders you already stated that with the possible broken compression rings?

1994 Ford Mustang blowing white smoke that smells like pure gas. Gas running straight through and getting about 5 mile per gallon.


Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

Overfilled the engine with oil now car is smoking and engine is rattling and very noisey why?


If you think you put in too much oil, and you see a lot of foam on the dipstick after-wards and also if you notice lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust ,then you may have to drain some of the oil out. Also if you overfill your engine with oil then it blows the crank case oil seal and it builds up a lot of Odd Pressure and this is not good for the car engine. Due to too much oil:---- High pressure may develop in the crankcase from having too much oil in the engine and can lead to oil leakage, as well as premature engine wear and damages. Just get it drained ASAP. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Over filled with oil. lifters knocking


You will get low compression and oil will blow-by and cause a smoke storm cloud behind your truck.
You can get a fluid pump to pull out excess oil through the dipstick.
same happened to me, truck is tough and fine...no bailout needed :)

Oil blowing out of the dipstick tube.


On top of the valve cover there is a fresh air breather unit. Make sure the breather unit is not plugged.
Also the fixed orifice PCV should be clear. Find a tool that will go through the orifice and make sure it is clean.
Remove the vacuum hose and check it for cracks or internal damage. With the engine running, make sure you have vacuum through the hose.
Let me know when your finished cleaning the crankcase breather system.

Engine: 1994 ford aerostar,


Please see the diagram at http://6jonline.com/aerostar_oil.jpg. I have included a picture of the engine with the oil fill cap and dipstick labeled. To open the cap just turn it counter clockwise like your gas cap.
