Check the oil level and ensure that it is at correct level. excessive oil causes the oil to froth up and expand

SOURCE: 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.
Regards,

2008 Toyota Tacoma-automatic. Transmission fluid was drained in error thinking it was oil outlet. Where does new transmission fluid go in? Manual does not provide this specific info.


Trans fluid goes in the same tube the transmission dipstick sticks into. You'll need a funnel with a narrow bottom opening (1/2" or less). Make sure you pour it in the transmission dipstick tube, and not the engine oil dipstick tube. ;)
Initially, try to add about 3/4 of the estimated amount that you accidentally drained, then slow fill the remainder while checking level at different stages.
Also, try not to overfill. Check fluid level often, with engine running, in park or neutral, as you re-fill it.

1992 cadillac deville leaking oil at dipstick


I would look for other leaks. If you are sure it's leaking at the dipstick tube, there is normally an o-ring where the tube presses into the engine. In general, this is an odd place for a leak, as ther eshould be no oil pressure in the pan (where the tube terminates) and unless the engine is overfilled with oil, the tube end shouldn't be immersed in oil to leak. IF there is pressure in the oil pan, that generally indicates bad rings. I have seen engines where the oil dipstick actually pops out of the tube under pressure when the engine is running due to pressure in the oil pan from blow-by at the rings.

Can't find where to add transmission fluid in a 2006 all wheel drive equinox


I am unfamiliar with exact car, however, It is not unusual for transmission oil to be put in via the the transmission dip stick tube - do not confuse it with the engine oil dip stick tube. Do it slowly and make sure you dont over fill or you will eventutally blow your transmission box seals or worse. Let the oil settle before checking levels too because it is easy to misread the dip stick when you have used the dip stick tube to fill oil in.

Checking oil and transmission levels


you will check the oil with then engine off. Pull the oil dipstick (yellow one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The oil level should be in the hash marks. If the level is below the hash marks than start by adding one quart and recheck. One quart will change the oil level from the bottom of the hash marks to the top of the hash marks.

The transmission fluid needs to be checked with the engine running. Preferably warmed up to operating temperature. With your foot on the brake engage the transmission through all the gears and then back into park. With the engine still running remove the transmission dipstick (red one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The fluid level should be in btween the hot marks. If it is low start by adding 1/2 quart at a time through the transmission dipstick tube. You will need a funnel small enough to fit in the tube to do this. It will take a while for the fluid to drain out of the tube. Recheck check the fluid level and continue adding in 1/2 quart increments until the level is in between the hot marks.

Where do i pour transmission fluid


Always check the transmission fluid with the engine hot (after driving) and while the car is idling and in park.

Pour the transmission fluid, using a funnel, into the tube where the transmission dipstick is. The dipstick handle is usually the RED one.

Do not overfill the transmission fluid, as this could cause it to come out into the engine compartment thru the filler/dipstick tube when it becomes hot and potentially catch on fire.

Good luck
