Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Hi i have a kia k2700 the oil is coming through the dipstick but when i open the cap where i fill oil it stops what could be the cause of this, could it be a broken ring on the piston
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

if you can some how manage to get it opened, spray some lubracant on the button inside the door. if not you'll need to replace the release cable.

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.

do u have a check engine light? have you tried replacing the gas cap, the vent valve located in the gas cap may be the cause of this.
