I mean if the cap is open, of course oil is going to sputter everywhere, because its running through there, lubing up the parts, like rocker arms and valves and spring.

Its normal.

WATER AND OIL MIX UNDER AIR FILTER 1997 Suzuki Swift • 1.3L 4 cylinder FWD Manual


have a compression test done on your engine to diagnose its state...if the cylinder head gasket has gone it will need replacing. You cannot fix it with sealnt.
The head gasket usually goes because of overheating at some prior time to the gasket going. The heat can cause the head to warp or crack in extreme circumstances. I n either case the head would have to be repaired if possible, adding sealant will not fix this.
The more you drive in this condition the more damage you are likely to incur

good luck

My 2002 vw jetta 1.8 turbo is smoking from the engine and leaking oil. whats the problem?


The smoke is due to the leaking oil. there is a common problem where the oil hose that feeds the turbo leaks, and drips on exhaust. Open bonnet on cold engine and clean the rear part using degreaser of sprayer, start up the engine and let it idle while checking the rear . for better results i usually pull the car up on a white sheet of cardboard or paper so i can see where it drips or splutters the oil on top the paper. Turn off car about 10 minutes in and check under the car. the area where you see oil will tell you where to investigate further. Another common VW problem is the tappit cover gaskit that leaks from time to time. Remove plastic engine cover and have a look

'97 540i spluttering & cutting out


best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue

Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm


Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash

Gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf


There are two pressure switches. One for oil pressure and one for a dirty oil filter. Are you sure you've changed the right switch. If car drives for 30 mls it doesn't sound like you need an engine. The spluttering is likely to be completely unrelated to the oil warning I suspect.

Spluttering Engine


Could be that the oil filler cap is off or a crank case vent hose is broken, these are just minor problems, could be something major though.
My advice is not to start the engine as there is a fire risk, put the car on a tow truck and get you local garage to check it out, they can degrease the engine and fix the problem for you, safely.

1992 lancer gsr 1.8 dohc turbo. 4g93t eng cd5a chassis. start trouble shoot


9.3 is a really dead battery - replace it and check the alternator. I have seen them go bad with no dash indication. As to the oil being black, you may have worn piston rings, and probably need an engine re-build. Worn rings allow the exhaust of the engine contaminate the oil - you should also see increased oil consumption due to the vapors exiting via the PCV valve and being burned in the engine.

ENGINE KNOCKS ON DECELERATION


When you say pressure appears high, what happens when you remove the cap? Oil spitting out, the sound of z "heavy breathing"?
You say PCV is fine, I gather it shows suction when removed while the engine is running. So put it back.
With the engine idling, remove the oil cap and block off the opening with yout hand. Do you feel pressure then, or suction? Or neither? I think I would expect either neither, or slight ****. In which case, all is good.
