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.

Needs a tune up. Adjust engine timing, replace plugs and plug wires, replace air filter, oil and oil filter, fuel filter and clean fuel injectors, adjust valves.

All engines spill oil when running from the fill cap. That is why user manuals state that the oil should be filled only when the engine is not running!

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.

New engine oil going into air filter box



If you see oil in air filter means oil cotrol piston ring worn out. or broken.
engine oil passes gap between engine block and piston rings.
so you need engine ovaholing.

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.
