It should have. the PCV valve ( positive crankcase ventilation valve) pulls air threw the crankcase, so if it is runing there will be a vacuum if you pull the dipstck out.

Why would I have high vacuum in oil dip stick tube a bad m.a.p sender???


You should have a vacuum in the tube. If it feels like it will pull your finger in the tube? check the air filter.

Ford 5.4L 3 valve motor has vacuum in the oil pan and will not run with the fill cap off.


The only vacuum being pulled, is the hose from the valve
cover (PVC) hose ,I believe, to the throttle body area

The reason you have a crankcase vacuum so high on the other
valve cover & oil fill cap, is that air can't get in to replace the air
drawn in behind the throttle body

eg: you have no air coming in,find out why

I think the air in comes from the ducting around the MAF Sensor
area in a 1" plastic or rubber tubing to the cover where your fill cap is

My Lincoln is like that

I have been around 5.4 fords I just haven't googled a picture of yours,you can do that or look over your truck

The vacuum amount or flow rate is controlled by the PCV valve
hoses & system design,so you have no air coming in the other
cover or little,thus high crank case vacuum

That said-- what your doing is NOT a test & in some motors will set
a MIL Lamp & OBD Codes

Once the oil cap if off, you have an open hole for air to rush in & back to the pcv & intake,so leave it on when the motor is running

Opposite your theory

It dies because with the oil cap off, your letting in unmetered air
that goes into the intake,cylinders & out the exhaust & you loose
fuel trim control,as the oxygen sensors & pcm are confused

Today's vehicles work in Milli Seconds & only work within programmed parameters
