If you mean the breather is throwing out oil then you have a problem as this is caused by back pressure within the engine ,cause worn piston rings

2004 Navigator 5.4l dohc passenger side lifter tap.


Are you absolutely certain the noise is lifter tap and not an exhaust leak? These are pretty well known for breaking exhaust manifold studs, or even cracking exhaust manifolds. The noise will be present on a cold engine but might go away as the engine heats up and the manifold expands. Maybe that's why it seems to go away after adding additives or changing the oil. It gets just enough heat in the engine to fool you in to thinking the issue was resolved by adding the oil/additive. Are you always adding to a cold engine?

What does it mean when car says low oil pressure stop engine.


Hello, That message means there isn't sufficent oil lubricating the moving parts of the engine. This could be caused by little or no oil in the oil pan. Using the dip stick(yellow handle under the hood front passenger side) pull the dip stick out wipe off with rag, re-insert it and check on lower end and see where level is. It could also be a failed oil pressure sensor. It could also be caused by oil pump failure. If you have run the engine a lot it may have severe internal damage. Thank you.

Where is the oil sensor on 1999 jetta. The light and beeping sound comes on but the oil isnt low. how much do would it cost to replace it you think.


The oil pressure switch is located on the oil filter flange for both gas and diesel engines. Incorrect oil viscosity can influence engine oil pressure. Before performing repairs, ensure that the engine has sufficient quantity of fresh oil and correct viscosity. Always check level when the engine has fully warmed up (after radiator cooling fan has operated) then check your dip stick. During high speed turning the oil in the pan sloshes to one side and starving the oil pump causing a warning indication. So check it after it has pressurized the system to get accurate reading. To much oil can cause 02 sensor malfunction so don't over fill.

Oil geting on flywheel an starter, burning oil like crazy


willie05: sounds to me like you have a leaking rear main oil seal.
If the oil is dripping out at the bottom of the motor and appears to be sourced from where the back of the engine and the front of the transmission mate together, that is your problem. Sometimes if the leak has been going on for a while, the under side of the engine and transmission may be covered with oil because of the wind turbulence caused by the car in motion had been blowing it all over the under side. It may take you washing the under side if the motor off or getting it done, to spot the leak more easily.
A valve cover gasket leak will also cause oil to run dow the back of the motor. However, it usually won't get on the flywheel.
Good Luck. Let me know how things turn out.

per the Haynes manual for the 95-05 Dodge Stratus on the 2.0L & 2.4L DOHC 4 cyl engines, the oil pressure sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.4L SOHC 4 cyl engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.5L & 3.0L V6 engines, the sending unit is located on the oil filter housing, on the front side of the block. On 2.7L V6 engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. To access it, remove the heat shield.
