Sounds like blow-by if I understand correctly. Do a compression test to see where you stand with your engine.

What could cause an engine in a 1997 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo to blow the oil cap completely off the valve cover on a straight 6 cylinder


No ventilation to the block....check pvc valve...check for broken parts under valve cover. Or the ears that hold the cap in are missing cap is the wrong size should have 2 ears on cap like to thread.....p.v.c....positive crankcase ventilation

Oil cap and dipstick covered in creamy sludge, is this breather prob as not losing any water


Yes, it could be that a plugged up Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve or engine crankcase breather (with filter) is the cause allowing moisture to condense in the crankcase. However, if the valve and breather are okay, a cylinder compression test should be done to verify that the cylinder head gasket is not leaking. Regardless, the engine oil should be drained and the engine flushed with clean oil and an appropriate crankcase flush additive. Entrained water in the oil (the creamy sludge) will damage engine bearings quickly.

Use 4.0 valve cover on 90 4.2l engine omit pcv valve use breather


not a good idea, engines rely on negative pressure(vacuum) for seals on crank and camshaft seals
also for emission standards, sorry

I have a 1985 s10 blazer .. i drained the oil and replaced the plug, and replaced the oil filter .. however, i am unable to remove the oil fill cap. it does not pull out nor unscrew .. it does hand...


If you have any other fittings on the valve cover (pcv valve, breather tube etc) you can put a hose into the valve cover through that hole and fill it. (slowly...most have baffles inside). I have seen engines filled through the dipstick tube also (takes forever though).
Once you get oil in there, bring it to a shop and have someone show you how to get the fill cap off so it is easier next time.

Oil blowing out of the dipstick tube.


On top of the valve cover there is a fresh air breather unit. Make sure the breather unit is not plugged.
Also the fixed orifice PCV should be clear. Find a tool that will go through the orifice and make sure it is clean.
Remove the vacuum hose and check it for cracks or internal damage. With the engine running, make sure you have vacuum through the hose.
Let me know when your finished cleaning the crankcase breather system.

Oil leakage


You have an open hose from valve cover to no where which oil is coming out of....hmmmm, I would think yes..... If you still have a problem with oil blowing out of motor after those are fixed, sounds like you may have back pressure.

the drain plug is located on the back of oil pan in the center. if you have a rock guard you have to remove this first. the pcv valve(positive crankcase vent is located on either the left valve cover in front or on theif it's a v6 or 8 or it is located on the valve cover in the back in a straight six it will have a hose that goes to your air filter breather box or the breather hose. please rate this...........thanks
