Oil leak


Not sure where your oil pressure sender is on that engine, but usually they are close to the filter. Or perhaps leaning on the top of the engine, like the fill cap, cracked something. Another possibility is a bad gasket on the new oil filter or overfill by 1 quart.

I have a 2000 vw jetta and I noticed that it gets low on oil after every 2 fill up's of fuel, at this point I must add about half a bottle of oil(synthetic). This however is not my concern. My concern is...


The "butter" is the result of moisture in the oil. Usually if it is only on the filler cap or breather it is due to condensation inside the engine. Make sure your PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve is good. Should take care of that problem. As for the oil consumption, if you started using the synthetic oil after the motor had thousands of miles on it you may want to switch back to conventional oil. Synthetic is not good for a well broke in engine because it is thinner than conventional oil. Basically you are just burning it. Which may also contribute to the butter issue because your piston ring seal to the cylinder wall is compromised causing the water in the fuel and air to be pushed into the crank case.

Overheating no fliud leaks


Take off your oil fill cap and turn it upside down, if it is foamy inside then your coolant is seeping into your lubrication system. With the engine running take a good long sniff at your tailpipe, if you detect that sickly sweet antifreeze odor, then your coolant is going into your combustion system. Two most common causes of overheating with no evident leak. If either is evident, get to a mechanic ASAP

I have a 1985 s10 blazer .. i drained the oil and replaced the plug, and replaced the oil filter .. however, i am unable to remove the oil fill cap. it does not pull out nor unscrew .. it does hand...


If you have any other fittings on the valve cover (pcv valve, breather tube etc) you can put a hose into the valve cover through that hole and fill it. (slowly...most have baffles inside). I have seen engines filled through the dipstick tube also (takes forever though).
Once you get oil in there, bring it to a shop and have someone show you how to get the fill cap off so it is easier next time.

If your saying you have a white build up on the oil cap but the oil is nomal then this is normal. Just wipe the cap off. It prabably has'nt ever been wiped off.

Head Gasket?


it is looking like it could be is the car run regulary? as sometimes when its cold a build up of condensation causes the cap that has oil on it to turn milky can you take the breather pipe off and check there if there is a build up there it could be the start of a headgasket problem.
