    The engine was rebuilt? When you say overheating, what happens besides the gauge rising? Is there coolant leaking?

  • reissner estanley ginez

    no leaks but consumes more than 4 liters water on short trips.

    From what you are saying, it sounds like the coolant is going eithrt into the exhaust or into the engine itself. Either way the problem is huge. If you want to repair it your self, I would recommend you have a professonal look at it because without a good hands on diagnosis what people tell you to do may lead you in the wrong direction.

The only positive way to check if the oil pump is working and therefore there is correct oil pressure is to temporary install a non-electrical oil pressure gauge that uses a small copper tubing to sample the oil/pressure and drive a needle on the gauge. Depending on temperature, idle should register about 20+psi. Having done this and confirmed that indeed there is sufficient oil pressure then it may simply be a defective oil sending unit. Otherwise, no or low oil pressure at idle is an indicator that the engine needs to be opened up again.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: oil dipstick tube

On my girlfriend's 93 (same generation), it's right in front, between the two middle exhaust manifold runners. You should see a hole in the heat shield, and the dipstick handle is right there. If the dipstick is missing, look through that hole with a flashlight and you'll see the tube there.

SOURCE: How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

Still have crankcase pressure issues (pressure at dipstick and oil filler cap) after replacing oil trap.

Sounds like your engine has worn piston rings and that allows combustion pressure to "blow Bye" the pistons and pressurize the crankcase. In short you need an overhaul.

01 Lincoln nativagator oil tube dipstick broke off an don't know where to find the other part that's still on the engine an what I need to get it replaced an how soon?

The part that broke off might be long enough to still be in the tube and you can get it out by removing the tube out of the block should be just pressed in and can be pulled out, check to see if it has a bolt holding it. If the part that broke off is short and fell into the oil pan don't worry about it just put in a new dipstick

Hello Finbarrwalsh, Usually, oil blowing up the dipstick tube means an excessive amount of blow by past the piston rings. If your oil level is not overfilled, you might need an engine overhaul.

Hi I have a 96 camry and the oil dipstick tube has broken off how do I replace or repair the problem

Since the dipstick tube is a slide in fit, you will need to drop the oil pan to work the rest of the part out.
1) drain the oil
2) remove the bolts holding the oil pan (once they are all out, you might need to tap the pan to get it to release from the block-my brother's 97 camry was like this)
3) Remove the pan and look up for the dipstick tube end, spray it good with some WD-40, let it sit for a few minutes. The photo shows some pretty bad corrosion in your case.
4) with a set of channel lock pliers, begin to work the tube out. Take your time, you will be pushing out, not trying to pull the piece through.
5) once it is out, clean the edges of the dipstick tube opening.
6) Install new dipstick tube. ensure you have a good fit around the tube. otherwise, the crankcase pressure will squirt oil through.
7) Scrape off the old gasket from the oil pan and the face of the bottom of the engine.
8) lay the new gasket on the oil pan and begin to bolt it back on. Get the bolts in finger tight, then alternate torquing them down to ensure an even seal.
9) change oil filter and fill with new oil

Newly overhaul isuzu 4ja1 but oil comes out from positive crankcase ventilation

im having the same experience with my isuzu rodeo 1990 4ja1. i overhauled it last december, spent almost 1500dollars on the overhaul kit and again 300 for paying the guy. The engine was running very good and brand new for 2 days only when i suddenly noticed a big drop in engine power while driving. There's oil coming out of the head breather tube and pushing it into the intake manifold. And now much worse oil coming out of my dipstick and my front and rear crank seal also. Can someone please tell me what the problem and best solution is because my car has not even driven for a year with the new overhaul kit and im having the same problems again. This issue is really driving me crazy.

Don't know where to poor my oil in my 1981 ford f100. there is not filler tube

there shouldn't be a filler tube, just a dipstick tube for checking the oil level. to put the oil in the engine, there should be a oil cap on the right hand side valve cover. if the dipstick tube isn't there, you definitely need to get one from a parts yard or store, you can be losing oil from the dipstick hole that goes to the oil pan...

I have a 2004 R2 - CVT fluid is to be changed every 40,000km. I've changed mine once already. Taking the drain plug out of the transmission pan drains 2-3L. New fluid is added to the CVT 'dipstick' tube, which is just behind the radiator with a black plastic head on the dipstick. A local CVT specialist sold me type NS-2 fluid, which has been working well for 12,000km. I also changed the filter on top of the transmission with a WIX 51365 which my autoparts shop found using the OEM filter part number. Hope this helps!

My 1995 toyota corolla 2e is newly overhauled but still smoke is coming out from exhaust pipes and from its dipstick...oil is leaking near oil filter..

You are experiencing blow by,either rings not set properly or wrong size rings used.Piston rings are supposed to be aligned at certain degrees from each other.
Check compression in all cylinders.
