Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I pull the oil cap and the engine blows instead of sucks air. The motor has small loose of power, I don't believe I have a broke ring. Is there a valve on the emmission system that would force air into the valve cover area? I don't feel air coming from the dipstick tube if i pull it while it is running.

Oil keeps getting into the breather changed pc valve hoses and filters


check sump oil level--excessive oil level will cause this
have a compression test done on the engine (both wet and dry) to determine engine condition---excessive blow by from worn rings , bore or cracked piston will cause this --- clean/ replace air filter as if there is a low pressure area after the filter , it helps suck oil vapor from the sump

How do you bleed air out of a 2005 ford explorer


Good job of tying the heater to the antifreeze overflow.

This is a guess. Replace the radiator cap and the hose connecting the radiator to the coolant reservoir. Then fill the radiator, engine, and heater hoses completely with antifreeze solution.

When the engine heats up, the coolant expands. Excess coolant is directed to the reservoir. When the engine cools, coolant is supposed to be sucked back into the coolant system. If either the radiator cap or the overflow hose has a tiny leak, air will be sucked in instead of the antifreeze returning

Gmc savana 2002 has lot air front oil cap


the PCV valve may be fine but what about the hose . It cab ne blocked up . Is the PCV valve connected up right . It is a one way valve and opens under vacuum ( when the engine is overrunning the throttle ). The extra air from the filler cap is an indication of excessive blow by in the combustion chambers past faulty/ worn/ broken rings.

Ok I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am and I smell gas in the oil an when I'm stopped at a stop light it makes a bubbly gurgling sound but only does it when the car is warm what it be????


Sounds like the car has very high milage and is experiencing blow by. Blow by is caused by fuel blowing past the piston rings because piston rings are worn from high milage. It could have a broke piston ring. If thats the case, when you take the oil cap off while the engine is running, there will be an excessive amount of air blowing out of the crank case. Engine would also run bad and have a dead miss on the cylinder with the broke ring.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee oil dipstick tube has vacuum


The PCV system is supposed to pull vac on the crankcase to re-burn the fumes in the oil pan.
But your engine sounds like it has a vent problem via the air filter.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located


ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.

First of all make sure all your engine breathers are clear. If they are then I would suspect something is wrong with pistons/rings.
