HI, this unfortunate leakage of gas into your oil is being caused be a faulty fuel pressure regulator. there is a diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator assembly that may have ruptured, in return, sending small amounts of fuel into the intake, via the vacuum line that connects the regulator to the intake.

simply replacing the fuel pressure regulator will fix this issue.

Please rate and god bless:)

Check spark plugs, check compression.

If the engine is not fuel injected and uses a manual fuel pump it may be leaking.

If O2 sensor is bad it may cause engine to run rich, allowing excess fuel to drain into oil.

Witch engine oil is suitable for a VW Jetta 4?


TWO answers read and follow the Manufacturers Specification. OR Always use ** 15-40 Diesel Rated Oil is ALL gas, natural/propane and diesel Engines! Use Purolator, then WIX, then Manufacturers Filters - NEVER Fram, "special". oil the oil lube shops filters!!! WHY? When flying planes, every 100 hours I remove the filter, cut it open, and INSPECT the filter material for particulate. My Vehicle Engines go for well over 600,000 miles - most other peoples. simply do NOT!

** I use Delo 15-40 in everything - an better one is Shell Rotunda, however too expensive and not needed! In gas engines after 500 miles, the FIRST Time ONLY - Replace the oil AND FILTER - mixed fuels and oils NEVER mix well. Then on gas engines ONLY replace the filter at the "normal" intervals and ADD not change, the oil... On Diesels, due to the extreme compression, you DO change the oil, at "normal" intervals. In gas, NOT diesel engines - you could use Pep Boys and/or Walmart's generic DIESEL GRADE oil - NOT in diesel engines, as from my experience.

AVOID gasohol - unless you like flash rust and oxidation inside your engine AND 30% less fuel mileage - NEVER use WD40 on ANY metal you want to reuse! And do NOT use BP or unknown small time gas stations - as MANY "top off their fuels" with other octanes - which LOWERS the octane - do to "covalent bonding of carbon molecules" Example: a 50/50 mix of 100 octane with 90 = closer to 80 NOT "in the middle".

1999 3000gt with DOHV 3l. Running fine then sounds like no oil in engine on startup. Also exhaust smells like raw gas


Raw gas smell may be the culprit of starting noise. Leaky injector(s) could be causing some fuel to enter chambers as you shut off engine, washing oil off cylinder walls and diluting oil. Check fuel pressure key on/engine off and test for gas in the oil.

Why am I getting gas in oil pan


  1. Minor Amount of Gas
    • The piston rings are seals placed tightly against the cylinder walls. These piston ring seals prevent the gasoline from flowing past the pistons and down into the oil. They do not, however, provide a perfect seal; thus, a slight amount of gas will find its way into the oil as a normal occurrence. This amount should be extremely minute, and such a small amount does not change the oil enough to cause any damage. Changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every three to five months ensures that it does not become a problem.
      Two ways to tell if you may have a problem with gas in your engine oil are:
      1. If you start to smell a strong odor of gasoline while you are driving.
      2. You notice white smoke coming out of your tailpipe.
      If a large amount of gasoline does get into the engine oil, change the oil immediately upon fixing the problem that has allowed this to happen.
    Excessive Fuel
    • When a fuel injector is stuck open, the fuel will flood out. Gasoline will definitely get into the oil when this is the case.
      If the fuel pressure in your car is too high (above 7 psi) that may cause gasoline to get into the engine oil.
      Gas could also leak into your intake manifold if there is a carburetor problem.
      An inoperative injector system can also cause this problem, because if the engine is not firing appropriately, the gasoline will end up running down the walls of the cylinders.
      Check to see if the float in the gas tank is rising the way it should be rising or if it needs an adjustment. You will not be able to look at your gas gauge and get an accurate reading If the float is not functioning properly.
      Your engine may be running rich, with too much gas going into the engine and too little air.
      Check to see if the oil level might be really high. This can also cause trouble.
    Check Piston Rings First
    • Any time you realize that too much gas is getting into your engine oil, you should replace the piston rings and then replace the oil. See if this helps the problem, and if it does not, then investigate the many other possibilities as to why the fuel is leaking into the oil.
      Perhaps at this point do a compression test. Otherwise you can try getting your fuel injectors tested. Also check your spark plugs to see if they are good or if they might be misfiring.

Everytime we stop at light the oil light comes on then turns off as soon as gas pedal is pressed


The oil lights come on because there isn't enough oil pressure in the engine... When you come to a red light, the engine is at idle in a lower rpm and there isn't enought oil in your engine to cycle, thus creating low pressure, and the indicator comes on, however when you rev your engine or press the gas pedal, the remaining oil that you have in your engine is being cylce because of higher rpm, thus bypassing the oil sensor. Solution to this, is you need to add oil to the apropriate oil level AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or get a oil change before driving this car any longer as major mechanical issue may occur if you do not get this taken care of. You can buy a quart of oil at walmart or your local gas station and add it and get you by until you get it to the gas station. You may want to constantly keep a eye on the oil level as maybe your engine is burning oil, in order to avoid engine break down.

Why does my engine oil smells like gas, and when i drive there is a lous gas odor in the car


You might have a leaking fuel injector, which is dumping fuel into it's respective engine cylinder, which then leaks down into the crankcase where the engine oil is. Then, as you drive, the gas is evaporating and getting into the car through the vents. It's a very serious, possibly explosive problem anytime you have excessive gas in your engine oil. Have it looked at and repaired immediately.

Can Gas in in oil hurt my engine


Yes it can. The gas will thin out the oil and you may spin a crank bearing, and the gas will also eat away your engine seal's causing a premature rebuilt. Change the oil and filter as soon as you can and change it again after 3,000 miles. Good luck and how did you get gas in your gas tank??
