SOURCE: motor oil spitting out from the dipstick. No smoke, no blow by.

Have you checked for a PCV valve plugged? Not sure if there is one an that, but would sure look for one. Crankcase ventilation somewhere.

SOURCE: Have some white, milky looking substance on the dip stick

I'd be tempted to live with it depending on whether the vehicle is using coolant on the assumption that it is condensation causing the saponification of the oil. If the Lucas oil treatment caused the pressure to rise so dramatically I would suspect that some crud has come adrift and lodged in the pressure sender.
The chance that the cylinder head is cracked would be more rare than a leaking head gasket both of which could possibly be tested by a leakdown test of individual cylinders.
The water has to come from somewhere.
Does the soap go away when the engine is warmed up?

Testimonial: "Good point on the pressure issue, not using coolant. Dip stick had rust on it and so did the inside of the fill cap. Hot or cold white on the stick."

SOURCE: Oil dip stick handle for Ford Focus ZX3 broke off.

Drill small hole in what's left inside the tube - insert bolt extractor - pull out dip stick. Material is relatively soft so drilling is easy. Buy new dip stick.

SOURCE: i need to know how much oil to put into mi toyota

Most vehicles when changing oil uses 5 quarts of oil. I believe that is any vehicle even trucks after you have drained the old oil out of it and is changing your oil. It should last a good 5 months but it is best to change your oil about every 3 months. that is what we do around here and we have 4 vehicles

SOURCE: Volvo S70 Turbo..Just had head

Not good. Someone didn't put it together right or something came apart. It's burning oil. Check the inside of your tail pipe. If it's wet and oilly then you are burning oil. Oil foaming is from compressed air getting to it. You will have to recheck everything done when head gasket set was replaced.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Would a bad oil pressure switch cause an above safe oil level on the dip stick

if to much oil in vehicle --not on level ground --engine running while checking oil -or not swiping stick clean before reading it these are reasons for high reading on dip stick oil pressure sensor/switch only measures the pressure of the oil

5.3 blows dipstick out

Sounds like your piston rings are bad causing excessive blow-by ...meaning your power is going around your rings and building massive crank pressure and using your dip stick housing as if it were a pressure relief valve ...motor needs to be rebuilt by an automotive machinist.

What does it mean when car says low oil pressure stop engine.

Hello, That message means there isn't sufficent oil lubricating the moving parts of the engine. This could be caused by little or no oil in the oil pan. Using the dip stick(yellow handle under the hood front passenger side) pull the dip stick out wipe off with rag, re-insert it and check on lower end and see where level is. It could also be a failed oil pressure sensor. It could also be caused by oil pump failure. If you have run the engine a lot it may have severe internal damage. Thank you.

Pajero valve clearance 4d56 turbo and why engine oil pop out from dip stick while enging runing?

hi the clearance on these will be 0.25 hot ( just run ) and the reason why you have oil coming out from dip stick is either you have too much oil in and need to drain some, or somewhere on the vacuum system you might have a blockage which in turn is casing a pressure build up and is forcing the oil out...hope this helps

My 1979 chevy bonanza 4wd. pickup has started blowing transmisssion fluid out the dip stick tube,after the truck warms up a few minutes.thank you albert blair

turbo 350? if so it can be that it is over full or sometimes the gears that are in the tranny that sling the tranny fluid up will get bent or worn and will sling oil to the wrong spots and that will cause your gears to get hot and expand and that can cause it to shoot oil up your dip stick
