You desperately need mechanic! DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! as you think there is only one car in the world, yours, you are mistaken...

only general advice can be given. pressure in sump indicates either of these:

1. worn rings (need rebuild) cost money but will solve the problem, check (depend how much travel was done, how good oil/oil filter)
2. hole in the piston or worn sleeves - costly, not always worth rebuild
3. exorst valve or steam broke or seat damaged - compared with two above - relatively cheaper...

for future references - use all three brain cells and provide at least manufacturer, model and engine model... that way you can have more detailed answer with method of testing for the above...

Do a 2010 Jeep Liberty Have a Automatic transmission dip stick?


Alot of the newer vehicles have maintenance free transmisions so they dont have dip sticks. And if it is maintenance free it will tell you under the hood.

this a bad PCV valve.
excess crank case pressures.... cause by not doing service on car.

Blow by coming from the dip stick seal oil on Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 16 HP v-twin


2 options--- replace the dusted motor (faulty air filtering system) or re-ring the engine. Go for the new engine as the dust will have worn the piston and bearings.

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.

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.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1999 Ford Expedition


The vehicle should have a dip stick where you can check the transmission fluid, that same place where you pull the trani dip stick out is where you refill it. Remember to keep the vehicle running for a couple minutes before checking the level and do not turn it off, unless you filling it up or adding some fluid. If there is no dip stick then you will most likely have to go to the dealorship and have them take a look, in some cases depeding on model the dip stick will not be there.

Hope this Helps!

How to remove dip stick housing


There should be one single bolt the screws into the base of the housing going into the engine. Remove the nut and then just work the dip stick housing pulling upward. It should just pop out. Pull the dip stick out first just to get it out of the way. Keep me informed, Raz

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
