Check the oil when the engine is cold. Make sure it's at the correct level.

========================

The Positive Crack Valve (PCV) is partial blocked.

This is under $10 item. You should change it.

The location of the PCV is on the top (or near top) of the valve cover.

Replace it and the oil/smoke will reciculate back to the correct path (back to the valve cover).

Check the pipe from the top of the engine to the intake it may be clogged up. If the engine is low in power or it is burning oil then it could de broken or worn out pistons, cylinder's or piston ring's.

What else can i do to solve compression pressure in the sump on a Hyundai H100 2012 2.6D bakkie? oil was blowing from the dipstick now pouring from the crank rear main seal.


First thing ,,,Is to remove dipstick and run engine [now how much back pressure have you got] if none ,ok .what is the oil pressure when cold,and when hot , should be very little differance, what ring gap did you give the rings when they were fitted. and was the rear main seal a good fit or loose fit ,,,and as for fitting new oil rings AGAIN and that stopped the pressure in the sump from blowing out the dip stick hole well THE compression rings are the ones which should have been checked for the correct gap and at -003thou per inch per bore,as the oil rings are only oil scrapers, and compression rings are for Compression is what you have a lot of in the sump.
Let me know how you get on,

WHAT COULD THE REASON BE FOR SUMP PRESSURE AND OIL BLOWING OUT AT THE DIPSTICK?


Blowby, Do you have a lot of blowby? with warm engine at idle, remove oil fill cap, is it puffing out smoke?

Check your oil pressure, or maybe a gasket issue?

Where should i take my chevy to check the oil?


Any repair facility or oil change place could do it but to do it yourself.

1. Shut off engine
2. Open hood
3. Pull dipstick-should have a yellow handle
4. wipe off dipstick with a rag
5. put dipstick back in and pull out
6. Look at end to check to see oil is in the full area on stick

Seems like you have a stuck thermostat. The lack of heat is from the lack of the thermostat opening preventing flow to the heater core.

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

Where do i put oil in my 1978 Chevy C10 pickup


If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question.
