Most likely it is not. There should be a PCV valve that lets the pressure off, if it is bad or missing, that would cause the crank case to build up pressure and blow oil out. First though be sure that there is no leaks in the heads or gasket and that there is not too much oil in the engine. The dipstick tube should not extend all the way into the oil reservoir and let oil out.

SOURCE: Oil Dipstick

i would say that replacing oilpan was the cause of this problem and if the machanics shop was to instal a oil pan from an aftermarket company not the oem origional equipment there might be an issue with this dipstick tube on this paticular aftermarket part that was installed suggest to remove oil pan and inspect for inperfections near or around filler tube acess hole maybe gasket or silicone builup an that area
good luck

SOURCE: 1988 Volvo 740 Smoke from Oil Cap and Dipstick hole when removed

The smoke coming from the valve cover and dipstick is called blowby. It is combustion gases the have passes by the piston rings . A small amount of blowby is normal on all engines. The PCV system(Positve Crankcase Ventilation)pulls the gases out and directs them back into the egine to be burnt again. I would first check the PCV system to make sure it is working proper. Also a compression test of the engine will tell you which cylinder is not sealing proper. If the compression test is ok, a leak down check of the cylinders will determine if the engine is wore out.

My 1994 chevy camero I fill it with coolent 15 mins of driving it , I open the cap and the coolent is low , and it's not leaking on the ground so I fill it up again and the same thing happins again


You may have a blown head gasket. Pull out the engine oil dipstick and check the color of the oil. If it is black / honey color, that's OK. If your head gasket is blown into the water jacket, there will be oil in the sump, and the oil on your dipstick will be a greyish color.
Another check is to open the radiator cap (the one on the radiator, not the one on the plastic filler bottle) and start the engine. Now look into the open radiator and rev the engine slighly. You might see gas bubbles in the water, indicating a compression leak to the water jacket. Also a smell of burnt gas coming from the radiator indicates the same thing.
Let us know if this helps, so we can check other options.

Hyundie 1300 Accent Hatchback year of manufacture 2000. Is the transmission lubricated via the engine or is it separate and filled manually.


Hi,
Off course! The engine oil is different from tranny lubrication! Fill the engine oil via engine oil cap. If u have an automatic transmission, check the level of ATF by looking at the transmission dipstick. and fill it up via dipstick tube. If you have a manual tranny, check the gear oil via inlet nut under the transmission.
Hope that clears everything!

How to check trans oil level and condition


  • There is a 8mm or 10mm plug on the back of the transmission (underneath the car) When you pull that plug if fluid comes out then it it full. If not you add fluid until it just barely comes out that hole and then the transmission is full.
  • Now you add fluid from the top of the transmission. You have to look way down in the engine bay on top of the transmission for a red or black cap. It may say "do not open" or "open by a technician only." Take and pull that cap off and this is the fill spout for the transmission. It's a fill only, not a check. Add from this spout until it comes out that little plug on the back of the transmission.
  • You will hear people call this a "sealed" transmission of "non-serviceable." Now you can tell them rubbish lol.
  • To check the condition you can look to see if it is getting black or smells burnt. After 50,000 miles the fluid needs flushed and after 100,000 miles you need to change the filter and gasket for the transmission.

I need to put motor oil in my car and dont know how to so it cause my eletric to stop and i also need my breaks fix


First problem: adding motor oil. Open the hood of the car, there is usually a lever or handle with a picture of the hood on it, pull that to open hood. Find OIL FILLER CAP and remove. Find the Oil Dipstick and check oil level FIRST! Do not overfill engine oil. Open container of oil and pour in to oil fill hole. The dipstick will have marks on it to let you know where the FULL LEVEL is, do not overfill. Electric should return once engine has sufficient oil in it. For brake problems, please bring your car to the nearest brake shop.
Hope this helps.

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995



OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Where do you find the fill rea for automatic transmission fluid on a 2000 kia sephia? I swear i cannot find the fill area - found the oil, power steering & brake - but not the transmission fluid fill


There is no fill cap. simply use a small enough funnel that will fit in the dipstick tube for where you check the transmission fluid at. Add it directly down the dipstick tube. Make sure when you check it after applying some that your car is running. Also to get accurate reading let it sit a minute so it is not on the side of the stick.

Please see the diagram at http://6jonline.com/aerostar_oil.jpg. I have included a picture of the engine with the oil fill cap and dipstick labeled. To open the cap just turn it counter clockwise like your gas cap.
