SOURCE: oil blow back from out of the dip stick

A blocked PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve can cause this - they get blocked with carbon and soot, then crank case pressure builds up, OR the oil control rings are worn, allowing combustion chamber compression "blow-by".

Have the cylinders tested for compression and leak-down, if this test passes then pull the PCV valve and fit a new one, it is plastic, black, has 2 or 3 hoses going to it and it sits between the crank case and the inlet manifold. Cheap to replace, unlike oil control rings which require a motor rebuild.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1998 c70

There isnt' one. Volvos are equipped with vent-box located underneath the intake manifold. Remove the oil dip stick tube and then the intake manifold and remove the box. Install a new breather box and make sure to clean the lines going to and from the box. If the breather box gets clogged, oil will push from the oil filler cap, dip stick tube and worst case, blow through the engine seals.

Loud whistle comes from eng. comp.stops when oil dip stick removed.starts again when replaced. eng. running at the time.

When you remove the dipstick, do you feel air puffing from the dipstick hole? If so, you probably have a clogged PCV. Another way to test is to leave the dipstick in and remove the oil cap. Does it do the same thing? PCV.

Replacing involves removing the intake manifold. If you're not comfortable working on cars, I wouldn't do it. Seek out your local mechanic and pay him/her for their services.

Pajero valve clearance 4d56 turbo and why engine oil pop out from dip stick while enging runing?

hi the clearance on these will be 0.25 hot ( just run ) and the reason why you have oil coming out from dip stick is either you have too much oil in and need to drain some, or somewhere on the vacuum system you might have a blockage which in turn is casing a pressure build up and is forcing the oil out...hope this helps

How do i refill the transmission oil in my 1997 Micra auto (1 ltr). Can't find the cap.

Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube. You'll Need a Funnel that Fits inside the Transmission Dip Stick Tube. This Should Resolve your Question. Please Vote and That actually sends me How Well I have Helped You.

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

The tranny dip stick is behind the eng. on the passenger side between the firewall and motor.Its not easy to spot because it sits down in a little bit and is black in color.Add oil where you pull the dip stick out and not to much oil at a time.You will need to get a small funnel that will fit into the tube.Once you have found the it,check the oil level with the eng.running and hot to get the correct reading.Add a little at a time being sure you dont overfill.Recheck the level after driving and add more if nessesary.Hope this helps.

Milky solution on bottom of oil cap and dip stick

I'm afraid you may have water in your oil, has the car recently overheated or have you driven through high water? Many times this is a sign of a blown head gasket. You should have it looked at and change the oil. Let me know how it goes and good luck. lone99star
