Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

What would make the crankcase on a 1999 Honda Civic LX pressurize, it has oil vapor shooting out of the dip stick tube & is pushing oil out of the front & rear main oil seals? The car starts fine, but after it warms up it will not idle without pushing on the gas.

I saw this once where a guy took his car to one of those Quick Oilchange places and the kid put in new oil and forgot to take the old out first. Another thing to check is youre PCV Valve, if this is blocked it will increase your crank case pressure.

I have a 1988 chevy z71 an is leaking oil on passenger side valve cover an is blowing oil out of the dip stick tube but isn't that much oil could that be the pcv valve clogged up


from what you described oil out dipstic tube your building pressure make a point to make sure that pcv (positive crankcase vent) valve is working and all tubing is in good condition its made to remove all pressure in motor and removing vapor that forms in motor I really hopes this helps if not please let me know good luck .

Why is my diesel blowing oil from the dip stick?


Sounds like blow-by...due to worn piston rings. (Compression that gets pushed past the rings, into the engine crankcase, and out the dip stick tube.) Make sure that a vent may not be plugged.

How do you remove broken oil dipstick from a 1999 ford escort?


The dip stick tube is pressed into the engine block. Put a bolt into the top of the tube so that the body of the bolt goes into the tube and the bolt head rests on the tube (so it does not fall down the tube). Use a wrench (such as a Vise grip) to hold onto the tube at the bolt and gently work it back and forth, being sure not to deform the tube. Remove the tube and old dip stick. Replace the tube by forcing it back into the eng. block. Replace the dip stick - done :)! Some dip stick tubes have a gasket at the engine - others just **** up to a shoulder that is built into the tube. Let me know if this works. Thanks.

Why is the motor oil come spilling out of the dip stick


There are a number of possible reasons ranging from overfilling with oil to a severely worn engine, but the most common cause is a blocked engine breather.

This needs servicing from time to time and when it's allowed to become blocked through a lack of maintenance it prevents excess crankcase pressure from escaping. The pressure still has to release somewhere and the dipstick is the most common route, as the gases escape through the narrow tube they inevitably push oil out as well.

If your engine hasn't had a major service then get that done first (it should include checking and cleaning/renewing the crankcase breather) and if the problem continues further diagnosis becomes far easier as you'll have eliminated any other causes which may be due to regular maintenance issues..

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

We have charged the battery but it won't move when I've put it in gear.


It's a short dipstick, located at the front of the engine compartment, very low, towards the bottom of the radiator.

Oil coming out of dipstick


What engine? The oil level is good, not to high? If yes, it has too much crankcase pressure. Change the PCV valve and check the crankcase air filter. Also make sure you have vacuum at the PCV.
