Check compression--all cylinders. Your rings are worn out, and combustion gasses are overwhelming the PCV system.

2001 geo tracker burning oil


Hi Karen, IM AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Karen, the first thing that needs to be checked in your question: Is it burning oil or is it leaking oil. Because both issues will cause the oil level to go down on the dip stick. Find out which is happening through a qualified technician before spending any money on repairs. Please visit my auto-repair-website if you have any other questions: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

My 4ja1 Isuzu pick up, fuego , has a smoke or mist coming out in dipstick. I check the breather and it has the same amount of smoke coming out. But every time I checked the level of oil by dip stick,


I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside

I have oil leak in my 1996 Lincoln town car. Just had a oil change last month a now my dip stick says add and check engine light is on.


How's the motor look around the valve covers,just because the oil light comes on doesn't mean the only problem is low oil,could mean low oil pressure,which is caused by many reasons.

I just bought a 2000 cavalier and the check engine light is on as well as the track off and abs, and when I checked the oil smoke was coming out the dip stick hole and after I let it idle for 30...


From you description I am thinking that the motor needs a rebuild . Smoke out of the dip stick hole is an indication of fire in the sump burning on hot oil gases. The fire is from compression and ignition by-passing the rings into the sump. The idle and resulting smoke is from failed valve stem seals and oil by passing the oil ring into the combustion chamber. The engine light is probably from the O sensors failing to control the ECM. The best check of this is to have a compression test done on the engine to check the internal condition

OIL LEAKING COMING OUT OF DIP STICK HOLE


sounds like you engine cant vent so its using the weakest point the dipstick, check your engines breathing system and the pcv valve it might be blocked, find it connected to the air filter housing with a hose , it should rattle when you shake it if not replace it.

I havea daewoo nubira and we replaced the valve cover gasket yesterday , did an oik change and now the engine is smoking white smoke. Try to check to hoses, could not see a leak. Where is the cylinder...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
