My 4ja1 Isuzu pick up, fuego , has a smoke or mist coming out in dipstick. I check the breather and it has the same amount of smoke coming out. But every time I checked the level of oil by dip stick,

I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside

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.

Chevy s-10 pick up truck ,158154, 4cyl engine, wont start

Milky substance on your dip stick indicates contamination in your engine oil, most likely coolant and that is an indication of head gasket, or intake gasket gone bad and coolant leaking into your oil system. Note that coolant in your engine oil is bad, coolant will corrode the internal engine's bearing causing you to replace or overhaul the engine. The engine not starting is most likely the result of being blown and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using Fixya and god luck

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

Where do i put oil in my 1978 Chevy C10 pickup

If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question.
